03 F350 clunk in front end
'03 F350 CC shortie. Level lift installed back at 15K. 94K on it now, it's been making this noise for 30-40K at least.
I have chased this clunk for over a year now.. first thought it might be the steering dampner.. changed it. Nope.
Then changed out the swaybar end links... still clunks.
Shocks? Nope.. still does it.
Then, just the other day, I was laying underneath the beast, and noticed that the rear shackles are leaving marks on the frame.... not bad, but it's obvious they are coming in contact with the bottom part of the frame. The bottom part of the shackle has a horizontal brace across it, and this brace is what is hitting the frame.
I'm pretty certain that this is the cause of the noise I've been hearing, but has anyone else had this happen? Other than getting longer shackles.. what is the fix??
