2 wd?..maybe a loose brake pad...see if it goes away when you ease on the brake..
i was thinking that too. the noise does seem to go away under braking. i'll check it in the morning and let you know. I realize it is very hard to diagnose with out driving it and i thank you for your help so far.
I also thought the shock because it sounds the same as when i had a broken one on another car. but the question i have for you is would the truck still handle the same if it was broken?
also i have tire wear on the outside of my passenger front tire only maybe this will help in the diagnosis.
how should i check these parts out other than the obvious visual and shake it inspection?
