Will this clunk fix work on the 1st gen. Blazers as well? I have a '91 and the sound of it is almost identical to what you guys are saying but it sounds like all your Blazers are 2nd generation.

It will be that, or the torsion bar mounts for the first gen.

I just got back from the dealer and they do not have the part listed. Do you have the number which you could pass on, much appreciated.

Always wondered what that was. New project for tomorrow I see.

Ordered the washers this morning. $3.00 at my dealership and he wanted to know exactly why I wanted them. Then said..oh that may fix it..but most likely not.

So I drove home and took out the towel, replaced the trim/cover, and I've been driving it unfixed since. AND I'M NOT HEARING IT ANYMORE!! I did the washboard thing again and there was nothing. I thought maybe since it's so cold the metal might have contracted so it's tighter now. Is it still a good idea to replace the washer so it doesn't come back or get worse later, or should I save my time?
No dude! Metal doesn't expand and contract that much But who knows why it stopped. Good tho'

Hello to all. I'm new to this site, and have been searching for a cure for the clunk I've felt in the passenger floorboard (on take off, and generally right hand turns), on our 96 Blazer 4x4, for nearly a year. Ball joints, sway bar bushings, idler arm, messing around with the torsion bar mounts, and even the 7 dollar spring washers, with no fix. Although they were in need of replacing anyways. I read a suggestion (i thought was from this thread, but I cant find the post), about re-torqueing the upper A arm bolts. I had been told by numerous suspension experts, the A-arm bushings were fine. Well it seems over time the rubber from the bushings tends to shrink, allowing the a-arm to move back and forth just enough to make a clunk. I loosened the a-arm bolts allowing a little seperation, and hosed it down with white lithium grease, then re-torqued to specs. It not only cured that clunk, but another that I would sometimes get hitting pot holes, or going over rough pavement. Anyways, i thought I would post this for the people that haven't found their cause. Maybe it will save someone a couple hundred bucks.
