All the wheels? How about ramps on the rear and j-stands in the front. I've been getting some terrible clunking when the rear tire on the passenger side unloads. I'm doing the exaust tommorrow and I'll try the ramps on the rear(I only have two) with j-stands in the front.

: wheels on the ramps - not jacked up as this gives a false impression. Put pry bar on the arms and you will see if the bushes are collapsing or rotting out - no real movement should be there.
