1. When I go over bumps the front end sounds like the shocks are hissing when compressed, only the front end though. Is this normal? I also have a metalic clanking when I hit sharp bumps or expansion joints(if anyone else has this problem let me know what it could be - sway bar maybe - dealer NPF)

2. My (automatic) transmission makes little clicking (snick-snick) noised when it shifts gears. I can here when the window is down. Sounds healthy I just dont remember this noise for the first coulple thousand miles - have 12K now.

Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks to everyone in advance

#2 is probably the sound of the the exhaust valve opening and closing and is normal
