    I am having a lot of clanking and rough sounding commotion in the front suspension hitting potholes and such. I know I pretty much need new swaybar bushings. I don't know if that's all it is, but what else would be your guess as to lose suspension parts on a 328,000 mile truck? What other parts do I need to be testing/looking at?

    A few of the easy items to check, are the CAT heat shield & another heat shield that is on the Y pipe next to the front of the trans. Common for these to rust away & then clang.
