Question frt end clunk

I have a 2003 f250 4x4 that has a severe clunking in frt end over bumps,more noticable at slow speeds.I had one guy tell me to replace stabilizer links but that did not take care of the problem. it seems like you can feel it in the floorboard with your feet sometimes.the noise is driving me crazy it sounds like something is loose or broken.

my leaf spring bushings in the front tend to allow the spring to clunk a bit during cornering or certain turns and bumps. just had the front and rear ends rebuilt so i doubt it is that.

I know going slow while on dirt or gravel roads it sounds like the frt end is coming apart,also when turning into my driveway off road there is about a 2-3 inch bump and it clunks very bad

sounds like mine. driving on the river bar it sounds like someone is stuck under the truck with a hammer.

on my truck its doing the exact same thing that you are describing. and on mine ive found that my lower shock bushings were shot. so im in need of replacing the shocks. you might want to grab the bottom half of your shock and see if it will move up and down on the bolt. and if so. you can get off-road bushings to just press in the shock or buy new shocks. and lower shock bolts
