Jumped Ditch, Sus. Knocks

After one of my friends drove off the road, and dropped a good 6 feet off the end of a t in the road, His right front suspension now makes a knocking noise on even the smallest bump. When riding on the passenger side you can feel a bump from under the floor. What do you think is the prob..torsion bar??

The most common thump under the S-10's that can be felt in the floor board is the torsion bar mounts. They hold the crossmember the torsion bar anchors in to the frame. They do go bad and get broken quite often.

May also be the ball joints knocking, But a visual check of the torsion bar mounts is a good place to start. Good Luck, Jason

My truck is not rusty, that's caked on mud.
