ok well heres the deal.... ever since i got my car it had been making noises...never got worse or better...well a little better after replacing the ball joints but there is still some kind of problem in the suspension.......

i get like clunks/popping noises out of my passenger front suspension..... it happens when turning right, when it rains i hear the sound over almost everybump in the friggen road, after the car wash, so obviously when something gets wet...it gets worse.... any ideas on what this problem could be??? i was told it could possibly be the strut (shock) bearing.... but i was thinking of replacing springs and shocks soon anyways.. to drop the boat :D .... any body else experience these problems???

ahwbg

(any help would be great)

thanks,

Patrick

jack up the front and shake the tire around and see if there is any play in it. if so, find out what the prob is. if not i dont knwo what your prob is.

You could have a bad caliper, it would clunk going over bumps, and make the car pull.

you guys are misisng one important thing, the strut rod bushings! more than likely thats the problem , it runs from the front of subframe to the lower arm, when they go bad you can feel the car pull they are cheap too right 6-7 dolalrs or so each, you need 2 per control arm. there is also the sametype of bushing on the rod at the subframe
