Strange noise when hitting bumps

I have a 2016 Rebel with 2040 miles on it. Just spent 3 days in shop and no solution.

Around 1800 miles a noise appeared on the right side of the truck sounds like it is coming from below and depending on where you sit it is either from the front or rear.

It is inconsistant and makes noise during these three things

1. left turns
2. uneven road where the front end is high / low side to side
3. medium size pot hole right side.

Large and small pot holes do not make noise.

noise sounds like metal on metal , but not a heavy metal like steal more like tin on tin.

anyone else have the same noise?

Funny you should mention this! My Rebel has just under 20k, and it has been in the shop twice over this issue with no results. The noise occurs when the suspension is warm and is in a mild flexing motion. I don't want to say it is a clicking noise but it's something along that line. My sales guy drove the truck and heard the noise,but when the mechanic looked it over he found nothing. The next time I will warm up the suspension before taking the truck back!

My Ram is the 2015 Rebel(White and Black) and I'm new to this forum, so hello to all.

Welcome to the forum. If the sales guy was able to hear it too then something is probably wrong with the Rebel. Does the clicking noise happen on flat roads?

The noise happens when the truck encounters a sharp bump,rolling dips in the road and uneven surfaces. But doesn't seem to happen when the truck is cold. Which is why the mechanic couldn't reproduce the noise when checking the suspension. Every time I've heard the noise the truck has been running for a few hours. And I would bet that it has something to do with the strut assembly. Doesn't sound like a ball joint or tie rod.

I have a "chattering" noise coming from the rear of the truck. It happens more when the truck is warm and when I come to a stop and turn either left or right. It started making that noise after they performed the rear axle shaft recall. Had it back to the dealer once, they said they bent some guards out of the way. Still makes noise. Went back again but they couldn't find anything wrong. The dealer wants me to come in and bring them for a ride to see what it is.
I'm not worried about it, its under warranty but I do want them to figure it out.
It almost sounds as if the limited slip is not disengaging when making turns. I asked if they used the right oil in the rear end and they said yes.
Are you people who are hearing this noise have the LSD?

daab, you described the noise as more like tin on tin, which to me would be a scraping or screeching sound. Is that what you're meaning, or some kind of a knocking or bumping or tapping sound?
