Hey guys,
After a couple months of periodic checking, I can't track down a mysterious noise coming from my front drivers side suspension. It only happens when I hit a pothole or maybe larger bump..and its a very metallic metal on metal noise, but very high pitched..like not big metal on metal clunk..Its very difficult to describe..and I can not duplicate it by jumping up and down on my bumper. Any guesses on what It could be? Ive been at school, so with only a small gravel alley way its hard to get a could look at it.
Any help is appreciated! thanks!

Check your sheet metal bolts, fenders, hood, bumper etc.
Sounds like a noise I had a while back, was a loose fender bolt

Ahhhhh ...... that sound. Brings back memories of it Driving me nuts.

My experience was the washer that sits under the coil spring nut. You can stick your Finger in there and see if it spins. If it does, you've found it. Tighten the nut up. And seeing that you have leveling springs. .....I bet that's it.

Im guessing you just hit the nail on the head, I will check that once I get done with my final today! And no, none of my shocks should be blown as I just replaced them all with the jeffs bronco graveyard ones..
