Install the divx codec and wait for it to load, it takes time.

Passenger Upper Ball Joint
Sway Bar End Links (Had to be replaced Anyways)
Sway Bar Bushings
Front and Rear Shocks

Total bill: ~US$600

After all of that, it wasn't even the problem. There is a service bulletin that talk about this in this upcoming video.

Want to know what the clunk is? Here you go!



Remove this 7mm screw holding the small outer cowl inserts over the hinges. Close the hood.

Remove the covers carefully and don't break the clips.

The hingles will be attached and they are a 13mm nut and bolt.

http://media.putfile.com/clunkfix <---Video Here

That's right, a $2 dollar part fixes this problem that has pissed so many Blazer owners off.

This is the service bulletin that came out in 2001 I believe. Covers all S10 and Blazers.

http://www.zr2.com/frequently_asked_.../clunking.html

Scroll Down to Rattle.

There you have it, I temporarily laid a couple bunched up shop towels under the flat part in the video and went for a drive on the roughest washboard road within 50 miles and never heard a thing.

Hope you don't go through what I went through.
HELP!

I Think I have the same problem with the stange rattle on my 1995 Blazer
I have replaced the shocks even the windshield.

The Video link and the info link in the post above no longer work and i an not sure how to proceed.

Re: 1995-2003 S10 & Blazer Front End Clunk Pop Fix!!! Read!!

THANKS!!!

I bought the washers today and installed them on both hing mounts
and that took care of the noise that has been driving me nuts for 4 years.
Yes, my Blazer is old but only has 80K miles on it and I plan on keeping it until it dies.

Thank you very much for your help!

Greg

Glad this helped you. I too was getting driven nutz by the sound. When this fixed it I was on Cloud 9. Felt like a new truck.

Re: 1995-2003 S10 & Blazer Front End Clunk Pop Fix!!! Read!!

Hi,

For the last 6 months every time I hit a bump in the road, it sounded like the front end of my 2000 Blazer was going to fall off. I came across this thread today and checked my truck at lunch. The driver side hinge was a little loose, I tightened it up and no more clunk. I picked up the washers at the local dealer (2 for $7) and will install them tonight. Again, thanks for the great tip.

I too have been chasing this noise on my 97 Blazer. My dad mentioned this forum to me and I suppose I'll check my hood hinge bolts too. I'll let you know what I find.

Thumbs up Re: 1995-2003 S10 & Blazer Front End Clunk Pop Fix!!! Read!!

Hey guys, thanks a lot for posting this. I cant believe tha clunking noise is finnaly gone! I had wondered for years what it was and alwats thought it was coming from inside the glove compartment, but i did exactly what BlazerLT suggested and it worked.

Also, posting the actual part number made it easier to find the right kind of washer.

The videos do work. Both of the links to the video works on the first page.

Please read the whole thread before you ask a lazy question that has already been answered.

As it has been said over 10 times in this thread, it says to install the divx codec to get the movie going.

Please read the WHOLE THREAD.

BlazerLT thanks a bunch for showing us this fix. I ordered the washers last week from the dealer and installed them today. I test drove the truck and drove on some choppy stretches of road to double check the washer fix worked! My wife's 2001 Blazer no longer needs an entire front end rebuild. Man you saved my bacon. Thanks again.
