Another new guy!

Hello everyone, awesome site you got here.
Just purchased a 96 F-250 club cab 4x4 with only 97,000 miles on her.
It has a 2 inch lift, but the rest is stock as far as I can tell.
This may not be the place for questions, but just one quick one-
There is a sound from my front end of metal rattling together when I go over bumpy roads, but looking under the truck I notice that the dust shields for the brakes are about rusted out and are loose. Is this the most likely cause for the noise as the front end seems good and tight and this does not affect breaking or 4 wheel engagement and is not noticeable on a smooth driving surface? Sorry to ramble, thanks for a great resource!

Welcome. As for the noise question. If the shields are loose and move around that could be the noise. But it also could be something else. I would check the rubber on the shock mounts. Jack up the front wheels and give them good wiggle test and listen for noise. I hope this helps

Welcome to the forum!!

Your noise almost sounds like spring slap...try greasing the spring tips (actually pry them apart and put grease in the middle).....if that changes the nose...dont worry about it...there are plastic insilators you can buy but they are just for the cosmetic noise...
