Subject: Clunking on new truck
IP: Logged

Message:
I just got my 02 dakota SLT 2wd about a month and a half ago. I am really happy with it but there is a clunking coming from the right side of the front end when a take a left turn. I don't know what the problem is and since it only has 950 miles on it really makes me wonder. I am going to take it to the dealer but want to get any opinions before hand so the dealer doesn't screw me. Please help, any would be appreciated.

I had to have all the front end components greased with the white lithium grease. The sway bar bushings, A-arm bushings, etc.
The noise stopped after this. I had less than 500 miles at the time.

My 2000 did that when it was new too. You would think they'd have that fixed by now. It could also be the steering wheel alignment. Check on speedtweaks.net in the tips department for a fix

Cheers!
