I drive a 99 dodge 1500 4x4 and was driveing down the road today and all of a sudden it started to make this load clunking noise when I drove down the road. When I slow down it goes away but then when I get about to 5 miles an hour it starts doing it again. It is defiantly comeing from the front of the truck. It shakes my whole truck

I lookd underneath the truck and moved my drive shaft to make sure there was no play. I just put a 3 in lift on my truck today and it didnt make the noice and driveing home from a friends it started
Welcome to just answer.com. I'm here to help you and your 100% satisfaction is my goal. There are a number of things that can cause this if the clunk is not coming from the engine it's very likely that you have a front brake caliper that is dragging and causing one of the brakes to overheat. Jack up the front of the vehicle after driving it for awhile and tell me if one of the from wheels is difficult to turn. Let me know what you find and we will test further from their thank you
That was actually a great evaluation but in the morning when I could see my wheel I found out the the shop that did my lift forgot to tighten my lug nuts to the right torque and they where all about to fall out except for one. Thanks for the help!
Okay very good let me know if there's anything else I can do for you thank you
If those lug nuts were loose make sure you remove the wheels and RE inspect the studs because when a wheel is loose like this it will often damaged or where the studs allowing them to brake prematurely while driving down the road
