You hear it more when running slowly and turning, making the chassis twist a bit. It is not related to the breaks.
It will be something minor and stupid.

Other than this small issue, I'm loving my PW. the sound of that big block, the torque of this Hemi. The look!
I actually wasn’t thinking it was the brakes. Some of the Hemis have been known to have a “slosh” of the fuel when you hit the brakes and it sounds like a clunk. I should have been more specific ;)

So, I got this new 2020 PW from the dealer. I’m at 9800km or 6200 miles on it... still pretty new!

There’s this clunking noise from time to time. 1st time at dealer, changed the links. Drove it off and the clunk was still there.

Brought it in yesterday for his 1st oil change and evaluation into the clunk. They suspected the stabilizer bar as they said there was bulletin from Dodge.

Still clunks. Got the head mechanic to test drive it. He agreed its still clunking while driving and turning. Sounds like a body clunk.

they’ll take it back again in 2 weeks and will connect cameras and sound capting devices to pin point the area.

anyone had a similar issue?

this is proof for anyone needing it. dealers know nothing and just aimlessly throw parts at it. your better off figuring it out yourself. go buy some wrenches and start with body mount bolts. or go back to the dealer 50 more times until their parts cannon is out of bullets

I agree completely. I usually try to figure it out before going in, if possible. Indeed, if I can repair it, I'll do that too. I just don't trust the work of others. Good luck with the clunk.

Just form reading here, Sounds like your body mounts, Mostly cab to chassis, makes sense when you are slowing down of twisting the chassis, I also have a good friend that owns a PW and he's had problems with his.

Beginning to think the dealer techs are deaf. I had track bar issues that were making popping noises. Everybody hears it but the dealer. Every single person that got in my truck heard it, my wifes boss heard it when I was pulling in the parking lot but not the dealer. Sad, new truck with a warranty thats pretty much useless.

Boy that could my problem also. I think it's in back then I hear it between the front seats, then I hear it when the front tire hits the curb going into my driveway. Hard to pinpoint, I go over a speed bump nothing, I go over the tar strips in the Walmart parking and I hear it. Didn't someone say that new bed bolts were suppose to be coming out in January?
