I've notived that when i make a hard turn or turn really fast i hear a clunking noise on my 2000 s10 zr2. i'm thinking it maybe is an outer tie rod end. have any of you other guys noticed this.
i have 115,000 miles on it. any answers would be appreciated. thanks!
i'm thinkin ball joint or tie rod end. put the front end up with a jack under the control arm and wiggle the wheel side to side and up and down. you might feel some play in there. try to figure out which side it makes noise on.
My truck did the same thing. I tried forever to find out what it was. It would only happen when I turned on a hard right. It was in the shop several times and mechanics replaced ball joints, shocks etc. It ended up being the torsion bar mounts. They spilt and cause the torsion bar flex and hit the underside of the truck. They are very cheap to replace.
I'm starting to think those torsion bar mounts are what is making the sound. my tie rods, cv shaft, and ball joints seem fine, but i'm noticing the sound is coming from under my feet. I bet your right. Thanks everyone!
