Default Missing Coil Spring jounce bumpers

Hi all. I am the new happy owner of a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Laraime. It has 126,000 miles. I got it for cheap, but realized it was probably gonna need some suspension work.

When I run over bumps (big or small), it sounds as though I have chains dangling beneath the front end (near both front tires). So last night I drove it on ramps and started beating the suspension parts with a rubber mallet trying to replicate the sound. NO LUCK.

I did notice though that the jounce bumpers from that arm that runs along the top of the coil spring were missing. *Missing jounce bumpers.* I took pictures but am not able to upload at this time due to size issues I believe. But it would be great to see pictures from you guys of that general area.

Any help of my general suspension issues or more specifically my jounce bumper issue is most appreciated. I am happy to be on this site and I look forward to many great conversations with you all in the future.

Use photobucket to post pictures. My 01 Ram didn't have jounce bumpers. It had bump stops mounted on the frame, but you also shouldn't be compressing the suspension that much during on road driving to contact the frame.
