Front suspension clunk
Does Dodge have problems with bushings on the '08 model. I've noticed in the last couple of months my front end is starting to clunk when traveling slowly over rough roads. It is getting worse and will be making an appointment with the dealer, but was just wondering. It doesn't drive any different. Feels like bushings are wore. could be in the sway bar?

It's certainly possible although it's not a known issue with the DR trucks. If it's still under warranty, let the dealer take a look at it.

Yea I agree if its warrenty let them look at it. I just came back from the dealer and got a new front driveshaft and new r & l half shafts. Its all free baby!! haha warranty is awesome!

Sounds like it's dealer bound to me .

I'm visiting the dealership way too much for the last model year of a vehicle. Way too many defects. If I didn't like they way it drives, looks, and the deal I got - it would be gone!

Well, turns out the tie rod ends are bad. 26K miles. Shouldn't happen on a truck that hasn't seen any more abuse than a gravel road.

Mine has a similar problem, clunking at low speeds on rough roads. Good thing you mentioned it, I just chalked it up to being a dodge thing but I have 1,000 miles before my 36,000 is up time to get it in there.

Edit: I read that they put out a TSB saying it's "normal" but did you have any of the death wobble while going over bumps before and did this help at all? My truck is horrible anytime there's a decent bump on the highway it's all I can do to keep it under control, I am about ready to send the truck to the yard for scrap just so nobody else gets stuck driving it.
