they probly spent 20 min on it iof that long,if it only happends when you hit a bump it may be something hanging loose under the front of truck,inspect underneith it,check cover around the cat converter,they rattle a lot,the spot weild breaks loose on them.

Well I had the same issue on my 08 F-150 and the first time (yes happened twice) it was the sway bar links and there was a recall on them for 08 models I would have hoped they improved the 2010's but you never know, every time I hit a bump they would rattle like flat washers on a loose bolt sound. Second time it happened the heat shielding around the front exhaust right beside the front drive shaft broke loose and was rattling every time I hit a bump, but that was my fault due to swapping the truck in mud a week before, easy fix tho. If you haven't hit anything off roading like I did then I would suspect the sway bar links or a loose brake shoe ? try next time riding the brake pedal when you hit a bump if the rattle goes away then its in your brake shoes or caliper if not then I would start by inspecting the strut or splash shield it could be so many things from not being able to hear the noise....good luck.

here we go the results are a stone was on the left lower control arm what a surprize what a relief ty all

crap happends.

my 2012 has a annoying clicking noise in the drivers door panel. the dealer has attempted to fix it four times but it keeps returning the same day i pick it up. The dealer told me they would order a new door panel and replace it , i was 500 miles shy of my 36,000 mile bumper to bumper. they said they ordered it but come to find out it was never ordered and now they say that i am over 36,000 and out of warranty. they refuse to fix the problem.
