    Exclamation Clink/Clunk Sound

    Hey everyone. My truck makes this weird clunk sound whenever i go over speed bumps. It sounds like its coming from the back and it only makes the sound when i go over things with the back tires. Its just starting to worry me every time i hear it, sounds like something is loose and i dont want to find out the hard way one day what it is. Any help as to what it could be is greatly appreciated

    could be so many things, your spare tire could be loose, exhaust bracket/hanger broken, yor license plate could be missing a few screws and clankin around. could be a dosy bracket has broken that supprts the quarterpanels. All I can say is just go back there and start hitting thins I am thinking something is just loose

    Do you have a trailer hitch? I keep mine on all the time and when I go over bumps, sometimes I can hear the hitch mount move in the receiver, making a clunking noise.

    No i dont have a hitch in right now, i have the lock that locks the hitch in on there but im pretty sure thats not it. Could it be something with the leaf springs/shocks?

    might sound dumb, but make sure their is nothing in the bed that could bounce, i forgot about some tie down straps that were their, every time i hit a speed bump the bounced off the bead, and came back down.

    I dont really leave anything in the bed so i doubt thats the problem...thanks for the input though.

    I had a clink/clunk sound as well on my truck and finally took it to the dealership and found out that it was a C-clamp on the rear leaf springs that was loose, i didn't replace as the dealer said its nothing to worry about.
