Revised Shocks For Clunking Noise Over Bumbs on Dodge Ram 1500

Problem Description and Possible Solution

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 noise in front end when on bumpy ground. Had struts replaced. Checked ball joints and sway bar and they are okay... Any advice or one what I should check next... driving me crazy. Dealership can't find anything!!
Rattling noise from rear shocks
Suspension squeaks and clunks over bumps, very annoying.
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.
was advised it wasn't a serious replacement issue by mechanic
Replaced entire front end still has low speed clunk
not fixed yet
Front end sounds like it is coming apart when traveling over bumps shocks replaced front end has been checkek
I have not had it repaired but defiantly have the problem.
dodge front ends are weak
