    2015 Durango R/T AWD Knock over bumps????

    This is my first durango but I've owned two new grand cherokees and none of them made this noise over bumps. I know the R/T has stiffer suspension but I'm unsure if this knock is normal or not. It rides perfectly fine any other time but there is an audible noise when I go over bumps. I'm ordering new sway bar end links since they aren't very expensive. Any other ideas? I just don't want to whine about it because I'm not familiar with the way these R/T's handle bumps etc.

    If anyone has any ideas I'd appreciate it. The Durango has 28000k on it

    If it's coming from the rear, it's most likely the rear upper shock mounts. Pretty common problem with the self leveling shocks.

    haven't noticed anything in the rear although it does squeak back there when going over a big dip. I was thinking some bushings of some sort. The knock is in the front. I hate buying used stuff, on the otherhand I don't mind fixing stuff either.

    got some progress tonight. the l bracket underneath on the drivers side was loose. Thankfully someone on youtube posted their solution to that problem.

    The loose L bracket underneath was one of the noises but it still knocks on the left side (drivers side) when going over jarring dips or bumps. I was just going to order new struts for the front to see what what happens. I was also going to order new upper strut mounts but I'm having a hard time finding the correct part#. It seems as though there are a couple different ones. I'm unsure if the mount is different from R/T's to non R/T's. Whats the deal with the upper mounts for the rear causing issues?
