Default Re: NOISY FRONT LEFT TIRE/SUSPENSION

There is no exact mileage to replace components. This link will show you how to check most components http://flashoffroad.com/Maintenance/.../alignment.htm

Also, this may sound dumb but the clunking could very well be your hood. The hood snubbers go out over time and will cause clunking over bumps and things. RuberDuck4x4 sells a new kit for $50. You might want to check that out.
