I am so glad someone has finally found out what the noise is all about! I have owned a 2000 that had this problem from day one of purchase. The dealership said it was the collapsable steering column and replaced that the first 60 days of ownership. I took it back constantly to tell them the noise was still there and after 3 years I turned the vehicle in on a new 2003. No porblems with that one. But we bought a used 2001 GMC Jimmy, the Blazer's sister, and it has the same noise. New shocks back and forth to the shop and still no one can figure it out.

I am a little confused by the post though. What is the two dollar part? The video doesn't show picture and the link for the service bulletin doesn't come up. Do you take out the old hinges and replace them or what? Where do you get the part?

Link fixed but not video

thanks for getting the link fixed, but I still can't view the video. I can hear the voice but not see the picture. I tried 3 different computers so it isn't the settings on the computers. It must be something in the video. Can you fix it so we can see the video?

You will need the divx codec installed to view the movie as stated previously in this thread.

Hmmm... could this be...

Okay, well, you've maybe given me some hope on my '94 S-10 Blazer. It has a front end passenger side clunk, but only when you make a left turn. The guy I bought it from replaced the ball joints, cv joints, and a whole host of other things, but never fixed it. I had one person tell me it could be an A-frame bushing causing it... But, could it be this instead? Thought I'd ask before I spent $500 getting the a-frame bushing replaced.

Replace your torsion bar mounts.

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

Hi. I just found this thread, and it sounds similar to what I have going on.
I have this "clunk" somewhere on my drivers side front. I had originally thought it was the ball joints, because when I went for an inspection sticker, the guy said I needed a l/f lower ball joint, and an idler arm, both of which I replaced right away. When he said that, I thought that would be where the noise is coming from. He said other than those 2 things, my front end was fine. When I realized I still had the noise, I thought maybe the ball joint was defective....nope. Maybe it was loose....nope. I am going to check the hood hinges soon, hopefully that will be the cure. I couldn't get that video clip to work. And the link for the TSB didn't work either.
