As some of you may know, I've been posting on here sometimes about an ongoing issue with my truck making a funny clanking noise when driving over an uneven bump or ditch in the street.
I have now discovered that when the brakes are applied, the noise stops. I tested it by driving over a patch of road twice (went around the block) the second time with the brakes applied. The noise didn't happen. Today I tested it again going over a notorious noise-causing stretch near my house. I rode the brakes over this notorious patch and the clanking noise didn't happen. I went around the block and drove again without braking and it clanked to high heaven...
SO obviously this is being caused by the brakes, what do you people in the know think about this?? Why are the brakes doing this?
