Popping/banging noise

Forgive me if this has been answered, but I am new to this forum and did not find an answer in research.


I have a 1989 Ford chassis Shasta motorhome. Since I can remember I have noticed a clunking or banging noise when making tight turns, like when turning in a parking lot or driveway. I had it checked out once by a truck mechanic a few years ago, and he said there was no problem he could see. In research I saw there was an issue on 2001-03 chassis, and z brackets were installed to correct the problem. I was wondering if that would solve the problem on this unit. I know this is an old unit, and maybe this was addressed several years ago, but I didn't know about these forums then. If someone knows of a link to these answers, I would appreciate it.

Thank you

Wheels

I had the same issue. It was the wheels. With the weight they can twist and 'torque" causing lots of noise. Have someone walk along side while turning and see if that is your same noise

It's that little troll that steals every small item you drop. He's trying to get out. "Help, let me out, let me out".

Grumpy, the steering does not hit the frame, as far as I can tell. It is sporadic - sometimes it will happen every time I turn, then I might not hear it again for awhile.

I don't even know if your Ford is equipted with them. But, could it be the anti-sway bar bushings. I just replaced all 4 shocks on one of my vehicles trying to get away from that kind of noise; only to find out it was those bushings.

Good luck!!!

I had a 1979 Chev class C did the same thing - turned out to be worn calipers on the front disc brakes. The mounting "ears" were worn and caused the calipers to bang against the mounting point. Worked that way for 8 years.....

I was going to suggest the anti-sway bar bushings, but got lazy. WD-40 will fix the squeak in a heartbeat. I buy it by the gallon. Much, much cheaper than by the can.
