FRONT SUSPENSION HAS DEVELOPED A CRUNCHING/CREAKING NOISE OVER BUMPS AND BROKEN PAVEMENT, IT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS RIGHT UNDER MY FEET WHILE DRIVING. LET ME KNOW WHAT TO DO, THANKS JEFF

Hello Jeff,

If the speedometer functions, but the odometer does not, it needs a new speedo head unit - you may be able to pick one up at a salvage yard as a complete instrument cluster assembly.

As for the crunching noise you are hearing, have your front sub-frame bushings checked for looseness and make sure the BOLTS are tight - also, check your sway bar bushings and endlinks for looseness - either of these items will cause a repetitive clunk while going over bumps - if they are OK we can go from there - I have included a picture of the front suspension for part reference - Thanks, Dave
