Front End rebuild

Hey I have a 2000 f350 7.3 crew cab long box blah blah blah. I just got it about 4 months ago knowing that the ball joints badly needed to be replaced. I changed the ball joints thinking it would get rid of the bad clunking. It got rid of a portion of it but still had some major clunking. So I disconected the sway bar end links and that was the other major clunks.

I was just checking the rest of my end links and they seem ok for now but need to be replaced in the summer.

My question is that with my major clunks fixed I still here some minor clunking and noises over bumps and dirt roads. I know I have to do my rod ends and everything but would tie rods really make a clunking noise over bumps? What else would you replace to make my suspension good and solid. The truck has 250 000km on it and is due for a good work over. I want to do it all at once in the summer.

double check everythings tight, you could replace shocks as well double check your u joints, although you shoulda taken care of those when you did the balljoints. also check the needle bearings in the hubs and the races on the axle shafts, spin your hubs around and feel for flat spots grease everything and it should be good as new
