Exclamation Front Suspension

Here recently in my 06 Dodge i have noticed that my front right arm makes a weird noise whenever i go over like a speed bump or something. It almost makes a wah wah noise. My uncle said that a certain part was dried out. I don't really remeber. I can't stand little things like that, it just bugs me to death. Lol also on a side note, when my truck was still under warranty it had a ticking noise so i took it up to the dealership and asked what it was. They told me it was the hydraulic lifters and he said its even louder in the hemis. Yea i unfortunatley have the baby magnum of a V8 in mine. So the other day i put premium 93 octane gasoline in my baby with a drinking problem. Later on i noticed that the ticking had almost if not went away. Now she runs quite, well except for my true dual flowmasters. I haven't posted in quite a while so i thought i would make a nice lengthly post and let people in the forum family know that i still read the posts and replys and that i haven't went anywhere. So if anyone knows whats up with my front suspension ill be looking out for an answer.

Not sure on suspension but if 93 octane cured your engine ticking you could be a knock sensor. Other thought is possibly carbon build up increasing compression causing pre-detonation which makes you hear a knock or tick.

Still trying to figure rams out those were just a few old problems with my GM's, worth a shot.

I'd throw the truck up on stands and take a closer look.
