RE: strange sounds in my R/T CC

I have the exact same problems.

Mine had 14 miles when I picked it up. The first day it drove straight. But
now the wheel has to be pointed a little off center for it to go straight.
I think it has to do with the roads being crowned. All my cars do that even
if they've been aligned at the shop.

I do get a "clunk" when turning right onto a driveway. Haven't checked out
why yet.

                Hi all -

                I've had my CC R/T for about a week and a half now and I
only have a couple
                probs .

                The first thing that I noticed was that when I got the truck
, it only had
                about 25 miles on it and it was noticably out of alignment .
Probably from
                whoever drove it before me , but I just wondered if anyone
else noticed the
                same .

                The main thing that I have a question on is this .

                I notice that whenever I am going over an uneven surface
that makes the
                truck kinda twist in a different direction on each end (like
when you turn
                right and enter a driveway or parking lot that slopes up
from the road) ,
                I hear a loud clunking against the floor of the truck .

                It sounds almost as if the exhaust system is being flexed to
a point where
                it is actually slapping the floor of the truck . I am not
totally sure
                that's what it is , but it seems to be the only reasonable
answer since I
                haven't had a chance to have the dealer check it out .

                Anyone else had this problem ?
                Jack Hilton
