    Default Clunk in under driverside floor board when turning left?!

    Hi Guys,

    This is my first post and I'm excited to be apart of this group. I picked up an 02 Tundra SR5 V8 4x4 with 114k on it last week. Since then I've noticed that when turning left at a slow rate of speed say into a parking lot, if there is an incline that I hit while turning I hear a fairly loud clunk under my feet. I can feel it too. It only seems to happen when turning left, going slow and hitting a bump or incline. I have not a clue in the world what it is but the noise makes me concerned. Anyone have any ideas? Would love some feedback

    Thanks!!
    Dave

    Check the leaf springs and rear shocks too. It's amazing how sound travels in vehicle. Something you swear is coming from the front ends up being in back.

    For starters crawl under the drivers side or crank the wheel far right to look under. Check to make sure the stabilizier links are attached on both ends. These are the bars that attach the stabilizer bar to each side. If you are missing one, it could make a popping sound while turning. Check the CV boot just behind the wheel for tears or leaking grease. If it is torn, the grease may be gone and it would make noise. These are prob the most common problems for you to check. Either way, check Rockauto.com for the new parts. You can google a discount code for them as well. Good Luck!

    any suspension mods to the truck? sometimes upper ball joints can make clunks or pops, along with what everything else people said. tranny mounts, shock mounts, sway bar, diagnosing clunks and noises can be pretty tough sometimes. Most people here have had one at sometime and most have all been something different. I know mine was upper ball joints. I also had a spacer lift in that could have been the culprit as well.

    Man you guys rock! I just checked this thread and numerous responses, I appreciate it. As far as I know the truck is still stock. It has slightly larger tires then stock that look brand new (BF Goodrich ATs) but as far as I know, there were no mods completed to the suspension. I did just hear back from the seller and he let me know the timing belt hasn't been done so I will get on that ASAP.

    @bigjeffie. I paid $11,500 for the truck and did a lot of research ahead of time. I'll upload an image shortly.

    I really appreciate your responses everyone and I'll take a look at each of the suggestions.

    My truck has a pop to it same thing backing outta a driveway on incline or whenever I turn hard. I took my truck to toyota to have them look at it the said everything looked good by my lower control arms were loose said and alignment would fix r up and even after the alignment my truck still pulled and damn sure still pops. I guess one day soon ill crawl under my tundra and take a long nap under there and maybe an idea of what it is will come to me. Till then im stumped hope you have better results. Let us know what you find.

    There are a lot of us that have a mysterious pop when driving over uneven terrain, myself included. I have a lift in my shop and have looked for this clunk to no end. There is a super long thread about this somewhere in here with no real resolve of the noise. Don't know if this is the same noise you are hearing but just wanted to put it out there that many of us have a similar clunk. If everything checks out you might just be joining that club.

    i developed this same clunking after i had the frame replaced. i does it on a sharp low speed u turn when the truck meets to different heights in the road surface or when pulling in or out of the drive way, but will randomly do it. i cant replicate it when i want to hear it. it can be heard very loudly from the outside of the vehicle but ive only heard it once. sounds like meta hitting metal. i think its either the trans mount or a front diff mount or a rack mount. it is possible that its the sway bar end links but mine are brand new since the frame replacement but might as well check them anyway.

    you sound exactly like me. ill worry about them but if i can see the actual problem ill just wait it out until if fails, breaks, falls off and then i deal with it.

    I have the pop too in my 2000. Just had the frame done about 2k miles ago and I wonder if that has something to do with it, like something didnt get tightened up all the way?

    or something that was rusted solid, was then broken free and now it hangs up due to the rust and crud on it.

    This is perfect timing. I have a 2001 Tundra with 45,000 miles on it. I have the same noise turning left as well. I had taken it to the dealership several times and they could never figure it out. I finally got under the truck and noticed that the sway bar link bushings were completely gone. I got some for like 10 bucks at my local part store and maybe 30 min of my time. Hope that fixes your issue. Welcome to the site by the way.
