Default front suspenision noise

I have a 2011 ram 4x4, I`m having a dull knock after hitting a bump or dip in the road. haven`t checked yet just wondering if these trucks have a common part that wear after 60,000km. sounds like a woren bushing, swaybar or strut mount? thanks terry

Similar to what I have experienced for 10k or so. 3 trips to the dealer and nothing. They did replace a blown strut, but the noise continues. I was thinking tie rod ends or or sway bar mounts.

Its a dull sound on the front left that I hear when going over bumps.

I'll harass the service desk when I go back for my pinion nut recall.

how do I know if the pinion nut and wheel bearing nut were fixed? will there be some kind of online record of it being serviced.

I had the truck back to dealer again, after towing the front end noise is even worse. they have order two front struts and mounts. I hope this stops this annoying noise, they have already replaced the upper control arm, ball joint and outer tie rod end. is there a bushing in the lower control arm or the lower strut mount that can give trouble? I don`t know if this is going to be done this time to, it wasn`t mentioned. thanks terry

Default Clunk

I have a 2013 that clunks when I hit the brakes lightly and make a slight left hand turn. Noticeably getting louder.
