Well I finally got my S-10 fixed and running now, for the last month it has been driving excellent!
But it seems that a black cloud is following me around still, I am getting a loud clunking sound from the back of the truck. It is doing it every time I hit any size bump in the road, or when I make a fast turn and the truck shifts onto one side or the other. PLEASE tell me that a bad shock makes a clunking noise, I hope to hell it isn't the rear end again! I have had 3 rear ends put in this truck and it only has 54,000 miles on it, these are also the original factory shocks all the way around.
I have 4 brand new Edelbrock IAS shocks for it that I bought about 3 years ago, because I got them for $50 each at Summit Racing's clearance sale. Problem is I don't feel like going out in the cold to change them, and no one will install them because I didn't buy them from them. NTB, Goodyear shop, and a few other places.
Will it do more damage if I just keep driving it on a badly worn or broken shock, there is no visible broken shock mounts or broken welds. Although I am carrying 400lbs. of sand in it right now, no I can't take the sand out because the truck is 2wd. and is horrible in snow with no weight in the bed. Thanks for any suggestions of what to look for.2004 Chevy Colorado
