    hows everything going guys? well i'm back from camp staff, it was great!

    but i have a problem. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif i ACCIDENTALLY jumped the sub about 4' high and about 10' long at 25mph. i broke an exhaust hanger and the muffler and rear drive line got in a fight, (muffler lost) fixed that. but now i have a clicking noise coming from the front pass. area every time i hit a bump. i'm gonna remove the swaybar tomorrow (i put it back on for the highway) and see if that's the prob. if not, any suggestions as to what it could be?

    what sort of a clicking sound are we talking about here? mine clangs, bangs and all that, because the front clip is broken (hooray for aftermarket fenders) hopefully you didn't crack a frame or spring mount or something like that: suburbans aren't exactly the lightest vehicles on the planet... hopefully you landed pretty close to all 4 wheels at once? ( my boss's son shattered a 10 bolt rear in his 95 blazer, but he was trying to jump it, as opposed to inadvertantly finding a plateau edge )

    hopefully nothings seriously messed up... that'd suck,

    not a bang or a clang just a "tick tick tick" /forums/images/icons/confused.gif .

    Welcome back /forums/images/icons/smile.gif I had a similar click going on in mine, that turned out to be both worn brake pads AND a loose wheel weight... took me a long time to track that one down - thought I had serious bearing problems for a while but had no slop in the tire. Hope it helps...

    I HAD A SIMILAR SOUND ON MY TRUCK AND IT WAS A CRACKED MOUNT FOR MY BATTERY TRAY. i'D LOOK AT ALL THE STUFF UNDER THE HOOD FOR BUSTED SUPORTS.
