Anyone have this noise
When I take off in my 2011 Silverado, I hear a clunk in the front. It will make the noise only once and only when it sits for a while and only going forward. Example, I back out to the road, go forward and there is the noise. I will go to the store, come out, start up and leave. It will make the noise when I take off. I don't think it is in the steering. It is not a metallic hit, more like a dull clunk. Any ideas?

That sounds like a universal joint to me... Only really way to find it is to get it on a lift so you can find the source.

block the front wheels lift rear wheel off the ground and rotate the drive shaft in neutral check for any lateral movement and als the U joints for damage. could be the tranny or rear diff bushing.

I wonder if it is your a/c compressor cycling on or off. My does it occasionally for no specific reason. It is usually right after I start it and then take off. It does it one time and then not again until i shut the truck off.

That is a thought, however, it does it when the A/C is not on also. I am stumped. Sometimes it seems it is a bump on the lower firewall and sometimes it sounds way up front

When I have a problem like that (where I can't localize the sound), I will stand near the (in your case) front and have someone else start and move the vehicle. From outside, you can usually get a better idea of the location.
