About Ford F-350
The eighth-generation model (1987-1991) weighed one ton but had the max towing capability of 11,000 lb built as a chassis cab model. Like others in the F-Series, the Ford F-350 was also available in trim levels including Custom, XL, XLT Lariat and Nite. As a four-wheel drive pickup truck equipped with leaf springs and a solid Dana 60 axle, the Ford F-350 was powered by engines ranging from 5.8 L V8 to 7.5 L V8 with fuel injector mated to 3-speed, 4-speed automatic and 4-speed, 5-speed manual transmissions. Then the ninth-generation model (1991-1999) received a major upgrade and added SVT Lightning and 4x4 Offroad trim levels. Before it was replaced by the Ford F-350 Heavy Duty, the Ford F-350 had been having similar powertrain retained from the previous generation.

The clunking noises keep coming from underneath the vehicle, the vehicle starts to tilt to one side due to uneven tire wear, and it is harder to control the vehicle because of excessive vibrations and loose steering wheel. Normally, the coil springs, steering wheel, drive shaft and ball joint are the culprits.
