I know there's been many posts like this, but I want to be sure. I have a clunk coming from the right front, upper spring seat and sway bar link were replaced, but nothing changed. :mad: If i turn left and right like I'm weaving through cones I can hear the clunk on the left turn, or when I am going over bumps. Is it possible for the CV to clunk? When i grab the car along the roof and rock/roll it back and forth I can hear the noise when the car leans to the passenger side. Thanks for all input.

My 850 makes the exact same sound under the exact same conditions and I have replaced EVERYthing in the suspension... Turned out to be the bushing in the control arms...if they look ripped or old swap them out. On mine I was able to jack the car up and put a 2nd jack under the control arm and when I jacked up the entire arm shifted up and caused the clunking.

After a ride home with the music off, I decided I need to get to the bottom of this. When I pull up on the fender about the passenger side front wheel I heard the noise. So I got on my back and continually pushed it up and let it fall so I could hear the click. When I felt around there I found that the end link actually slips and then knocks into something where it connects to the sway bar. not in the ball joint, just where it connects. I plan on inspecting this further tomorrow, maybe just tightening it will help. I did replaced it myself so it could be too loose, but the boot looks like its already got a lot of stress on it.

Take em back and warranty them out. A good chain(Advanced, Zone, O'Rileys, Napa or pepbois) will warranty exchange you no questions asked.IF you have the reciept.
