Seen on a few other forums about noise's coming out of the right front. Would really like to here from the 2011 owner's. I want to know if it really is worth my time/money to purchase this truck.

I'm a 2010 owner, but it would help if you could be a bit more descriptive.
What kind of noise(s)?
Right front?

Mine seems perfectly fine, no unusual noises, but I'm curious to see if anybody else is familiar with what you're describing....

the only noise i notice is a bit of clunking from the shox...particularly over sharp bumps like speed bumps.

If Bo's truck isn't making noise knowing how much airborne time he has - you should have no fear!
I noticed noise with mine at first - sounded like A-arm bushings or shock mounts. But I've now got 10k miles on her and don't hear it anymore, so I'm writing it up to being "broken in".

Only negative noise I've ever had is squealing brakes. Dealer keeps replacing my pads with "upgraded" or "better" ones. Think it may be ok now, but this time they said if it starts squealing again they will warranty a full rotor replacement, etc.

FWIW ... I have noticed a front end noise when hitting large bumps. I ASSumed it was because it's been very cold since I've taken delivery. And that the Fox shox were making noise because of the fluid not coming above 25-30 degrees here. Hmmmmm my grandma told me not to ASSume. Bueller .... anybody with mechanical skills have any thoughts here?

The only issue I have heard/read about on the front suspension is one person had the bushings on the lower control disintigrate. His was rode hard and the bushings wore out.

Check the last page after typing the search for "annoying rattles" at the following forum (www.rator******.com) There is a few rattles and active issue being discussed.
