2000 F-250

i am new to this forum and am in the process of looking for a superduty diesel
i dont have enough to buy a new one but was wondering what you guys think of this one. when i test drove it it shifted smooth and accelerated good. There was a clunk when i went over bumps that he said was the sway bar but when i looked under it the bushings looked fine. also another concern was with those 37's they rubbed on the leaf springs when you turned the wheel. i was thinking i could tap the knuckles and thread in a bolt to limit the turning. what do you guys think? heres the ebay link

eBay Motors: Ford : F-250 (item 260179691427 end time Nov-13-07 14:15:05 PST)

thanks for any help in advance it seems this site will be great as soon as i can find a truck

Good looking truck. It could be the sway bar end links they can cause that. What you could do is take it to a mechanic and have it checked out if the owner is ok with that. Most shops around here charge 60-100 bucks for that

He is probably telling you the truth, the end links are known to cause this noise. How to the BJ's feel? Get it in the air and feel for play from top to bottom, side to side play = wheel bearings.
Pull the air box off, if you see a k&n drop in filter runaway, if the PO ran a chip or performance tune and didn't have at least a pyrometer, runaway, take a screwdriver and pull the intake tube after the air box and shine a light into the turbo fan, if the edges are chipped or rolled over this means it has enhaled dirt and dirt is death to a diesel, you guessed it runaway!!
If it all checks out I would grab it and get those wheels off, clean 7.3's are getting hard to find, around here they easily sell for several thousands above KBB.

thanks for all the advice. he is running a cone filter and a bully dog that he says he runs at 75% and also he said that he has replaced the hubs brakes and ball joints. my plan if i buy it is to sell the lift and wheels and put it back to the stock wheels with some rubicon express's smallest front springs.
