Clunking noise coming from the rear of the Ranger
Hey guys, I was wondering if you can help me diagnose a problem with my 04 4x4 Extended cab 2 door. I am getting a clunking noise coming from the rear of my truck when I slide around a corner (streets here are ice packed). When the rear stops sliding and straightens out I get the "clunk". Its like if I am turning to the left and the back end slides to the right (along with the weight shifting over to the right) when the truck straightens out and puts equal weight back over both rear tires i get the clunk sound. It doesnt do this starting or stopping going straight so i dont think its a U-joint. It seems to be starting to make the same noise when you hit a big bump with the back end too. Its been so cold here I havent had time to get under it yet and look but I did give my sway bar end links a once over as well as the shocks and they seem to be fine. I really hope the noise isnt coming out of the pumkin! By the way, I had a trac lok put in a few months ago and I also installed some new KYB monomax shocks if it makes a difference. I put the rear sway bar on about 3 years ago. Thanks a lot for any help you can provide and sorry about the long post.
