Default First Sequoia issue

We have developed a distinct "clunck" when we bump a curb or compress the suspension at parkling lot speed.

It is coming from the front passenger side and I can't see anything obviously outta' place or boogered up.

What would you check?

Sway bar end links and shocks. Rock the boat baby ! Rock that thing as hard as you can back and forth it might take two big guys to do it properly. And while someone's are rocking look at the links.

Does a Sequoia have a panhard? My 80 makes parking lot clunks because the upper mounting hole is an oval now. Easy to duplicate if you have someone jerk the steering wheel left and right as fast as possible and have someone else watch the front end.

I believe the rear is triangulated 4 link with 2 parallell and 2 triangulated. With a 5th as a panhard.

Your problem is obvious. You need a land cruiser, not a mall cruiser. Sell the Sequoia and get a 100. Problem solved.

I was shocked to see everything NOT covered in grime and grit like on my 40...

I can't see anything outta' place, but perhaps I can get a few peeping eyes on it tomorrow at NSTBC.

Does that Sequoia have the front coilovers with double A-arms like the Tacomas?

Maybe an old/bad ball joint?
