Strange "Thumping" Sound
Hey guys. New here! I bought a '01 F250 2WD 7.3 PSD with just under 301,000 in mid September, 2013. It's needed some work to be done on it, most of which I've been able to do myself like new shocks, new rear brake pads, new rear rotors, new glow plug relay, new windshield wiper motor, new door lock actuators on all four doors, new keyless remote (didn't come with one).
Since I bought the truck, I've noticed a "thumping" sound from what seems to be the rear end. I usually only really notice it when I'm going at a somewhat slower speed, say, under 25-30 mph. It slows as the truck slows if I'm coming to a stop and stops when I'm stopped.
I haven't done anything to the front brakes, rotors or calipers and the rear calipers seem to be working like they should since I just had a buddy of mine replace the pads and rotors on the rear.
Any ideas? Could it be one of the calipers? ABS?
I have no lights on on the dash other than the charge light, which comes on occasionally. I'll probably have to replace the alternator pretty soon but it seems to be doing the job for now.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
