Unhappy Funny sound from front end

I had my truck in the shop, but they didn't know what was wrong...

The sound is like a jack hammer. If I am accelerating it isn't as loud. If I take my foot off the pedal, it gets louder, and if I push the brakes it even louder. Anyone have any ideas what it could be? Sound sounds like it is on the driver side.

The Shop suggested to replace my pads and routers (Pads are about 30-40% left, but they are not warring smoothly), and the tie rode on the passager side has a little movement so they said I should replace it.

I also have to replace my front shocks (Driver side is leaking)

Also they showed me that my front barrings are a little loose. They are the same on both sides, so they weren't sure if it is to be that way or not. Anyone know how much movement should their be?

Thanks for the information.

I would say it moves less then 1/2 inch up and less then 1/2 down.

I had the same thing, almost sounds a nut being tossed around inside the motor. Mine was the bar that goes from the middle of the truck to the Axle. (not sure what you call it). I could rock the truck back and forth sitting still and it would "pop". I thought the bolt at the axel side was snapped. Took it completly off, nothing, put it back on, tightened it down. Hasnt made any noise again. I think the bolt just needed tighening.

That is the track bar....also check the frame ball joint that the bar connects too...those fail often. I'm surprised that you hear the noise and do not have death wobble as well. Have you looked at your u-joints (Drive shaft)?
