I was leaving a parking lot yesterday that required going over a large, raised portion of the sidewalk. Afterwards, I heard squeaking. That subsided, but then the steering was making thumping/rubbing sounds.
If I turn the wheel 25-45 degrees there is a cyclical rubbing/thumping feeling. I can hear it on the driver side and my passenger could feel it on the floorboard.
I've looked for rubbing and contact points
Been under the truck while the wheels were turned back and forth
Greased up the grease points
The only thing I can find is this dent on the steering damper. The dent has obviously been there for a while and likely the whole year I've owned the truck. I'll replace a dented part, but is it likely something else could cause the "thump" or some place specific I should look?
