Clunk in possible front drivers side?

I recently (120 miles ago recent) bought a 2018 TRD Sport, my question is, when going from reverse to drive, as I start to go forward there is a clunk what appears to be in the drivers side front wheel, or somewhere in front of the truck? This is my first ever Toyota truck so I am not keen to the little sounds and normalcies of the truck as of yet. I will take it to the dealer but was wondering if any of you guys have ever experienced anything like this? It doesn't sound like a U joint or tranny issue to me because it happens when the truck is rolling if that makes sense, it's not a clunk the second it goes into gear. Thanks , Jeff

Wait, so you would be moving forward and throw it in reverse while it is moving forward still?

Small clunk on the first drive of the day at about 15 mph? If so, it's just the ABS self-check, completely normal.

No, reverse to drive, reverse out of the driveway, stop, put it in drive and as it's already rolling I get a clunk, I guess I will just take it to the dealer, I see someone already gave me a thumbs down lol, Maybe the question didn't meet their criteria?

Only the Shadow knows his criteria, but Shadow does seem to be handing out more of those the last two or three days.

Sometimes, it's impossible to know just what the criteria are...it's a easy, one-key-stroke method of indicating anonymous displeasure with the OP or the OP. Better to just shrug it off. If it was a genuine question, with no insult to anything or anyone, it could be related to "FTS"...Failure To Search.

Thank You, it was an honest question and I did look through the forum to see if anyone was having the same problem. Thanks again for your response.

Does it on my truck.. if it’s right around 15 mph definitely the ABS check.. some tundras do it some don’t. I have a 17 CM and my brother has a 17 CM, his does not “clunk”.

My 2017, 5.7L, double cab, 4 wheel drive, does it every time I start up and move forward. ABS self check and re-calibration. All good.

And don't pay any attention to the attention whores, dinkless posters and other "posing" truck guys on this here Tundra Talk. They have issues with their mothers. Well. There is one exception: Hicklebunny. You've been warned. His weird internet offers of scented oil massages along with free tire rotations.......should be construed as HORRIBLE WARNINGS.

Enjoy that new Tundra. Check back in often. And beware of members who.........smell TOO good.

I'm not completely useless. I can always be used as a bad example.

Yeah , why does it do this ? No car or truck i have owned ( including a 2011 camry ) does this clunk. Supposedly the ABS doing a self check , not completly buying this ... to be it sounds like a body bushing OR perhaps the drivers side spring clunking in the strut ??
Dont get me wrong im used to a bunch of clunks and stuff coming from my dodge cummins . lol

I haven't noticed that particular clunk in my '14 SCLB, but I can tell you that, when I worked in Service, for Saturn (yeah, I know...LOL) those cars did some sort of ABS-related noise (with the goal being a "self-check"). IIRC, I think it was a more of loud "whirring" noise, like the pump cycling, and only at a very low speed, but they all did it, and we'd get complaints on it.

The were far, far more significant (actual) flaws in those cars to complain about, too, which made it rather amusing.

I mention it simply to say that yes, even back in the late '90's, ABS systems were programmed to do a little routine that was audible. I can't recall for sure, but I do think it also was only on the first drive of the day.

None of which is to dissuade you from getting it checked out--better safe than sorry, right?

Good luck and let us know--I'm going to be listening for it in my '14 now.

So my brother recently got a new bumper that was a offroad bumper and really heavy, he does get this clunk, but it is the springs shifting due to the weight or something of that nature, just wondering but this only happens on first drive of day and no other time like when you turn or something?

I will pay better attention to it, I only heard it 2-3 times when I started the truck and was pulling away, it's so faint if the radio is on you can't hear it. I honestly think it's only on startup. Next time I am in it I will pay better attention.

On the Tundra at least, the factory settings timed the power doorlocks to lock at the same time as the ABS self check, so you wouldn't notice the "clunk".
I believe we first started hearing complaints about this on the forum when techstream software was available for the owners and settings got changed ie. changing the timing of the PDL's.
