Revised Shocks For Clunking Noise Over Bumbs on Dodge Ram 1500

If a clunking or "loose lumber" noise is coming from the front or rear suspension, there are revised shock absorbers available that can help the concern. This is usually heard at lower speeds and colder temperatures when driving over bumps.

Clunking can be heard while running. Even on parked and tried to step on and off the side steps to make it move up and down. I have not checked it with the specialist yet. No issues with drivability but the clunking is so annoying especially when the windows are open.
