Default Clicking sound??? Only while I'm moving...

OK so here is the deal..

2010 Dodge 1500 4x4 Crew Cab
leveling kit by spacer above coil (steel spacer)
tires are 275/65/20 (34")

80K on truck with 20K after leveling kit

When I am moving I hear a clicking noise, brakes depressed or released makes no difference. At about 5-10mph the noise stops. Does not do it at idle. Does it underpower and is worse when coasting.

I am thinking bad CV? It's been to the dealer they said "Yep we hear it but can't find it?" They said they put it on a lift and ran it in 4wd but no noise??

Anybody have any idea's??? Please...

Well if they had it on a lift it would not load up the cv axles and suspension so that would be obvious

Yeah but short of straping a guy on a creeper next to the truck at 20 mph down the road I don't know how t find out what is making this noise? It is quiet when you're moving slow? I don't know of anythng else that could be making any noise? Any idea's?

Find a shop that uses "Chassis Ears". They are remote microphones that you mount magnetically to where you suspect the noise is from. Signal is bounced to a speaker inside the vehicle.

Could very well be a CV shaft. Like Mopar said, running it on a lift is going to take the stress off the joints and you won't hear it. Just the fact that it makes noise under load and not when it's lifted, would tell me it's one of the shafts. Do you have hub caps?? I've seen where those make noise too at certain speeds. Chased a noise for about 2 days until we realized it was the damned caps.

I've never heard of that? Any idea of how to find a shop that uses these ears? Hell I;m in southern California they should have a set somewhere. Oh and thanks!

No problem. Just call your local shops and see if one of their techs have a set. They're not usually a "shop tool", meaning, the tech owns them, not the establishment. I know they're out there. And there surely isn't a shortage of shops in SoCal...

Default update

OK here is the update, after days at two different dealerships both say yep we hear it. The first one said we have no idea good luck. The second said it seems to be a piece of the cat has come apart and is inside the exhaust pipe. Sorry the warranty for that expired at 80k. I took it to a muffler guy to have him cut out a piece of pipe and see what was going on. Turns out the rattle the second dealer found was a loose clamp. a couple turns with a wrench and I was on my way for free. down the road to check it and yep the sound is still there. I am getting better with it though. It only happens in drive. As I am coasting down the road in drive it clicks shift to neutral and it goes away. So my next thought is transmission? That would be the logical choice what do you guys think?

Can you isolate front or rear of the vehicle? The parking brakes on these trucks are notorious for failing and the components can easily cause a clicking in the rear drum/rotor

My friend in his lifted f150 had a similar clicking noise in his front left wheel. It turned out to be his wheel bearing.
