had a few issues with the front endlinks, wouldnt line up correctly, then realized i needed to jack the rotors up to lift the control arm so that i could line them up, was a good 30 minutes of f bombs and marbs

After the instal of springs and sway bar seen getting a bad clunk, so decided to do rear subframe/diff lockdown kit from PERRIN.

12-10-2013, 09:26 AM
Ok, so after putting on the lowering springs I was getting a " clunk" sound goin over bumps. Figured it was the rear subframe so I got a PERRiN lockdown kit. After instal the noise didn't go away but was easier to identify. Something from the front passenger side is making it. Any thoughts? Wasn't making the noise after away bar instal, only after the lowering springs did it start. Checked the strut and it's not blown, any thoughts / suggestions? Sounds like something is about to fall off every bump I hit

12-10-2013, 05:31 PM
The inner tie rod on my wagon did that before I replaced it. I would check that or maybe the ball joint. Maybe also the suspension bushings.

12-11-2013, 03:26 PM
it sounds like it is coming from the top hat, not sure. maybe i put the top hat on wrong? doesnt the hole on the fronts face out?

12-23-2013, 10:06 AM
We'll car it still clunking. Took apart the strut redid the top hat ( did have it on backwards) still has noise. Checked endlinks ball joint tie rod everything tight till had noise. Did notice my caliper was rather loose. Took it on a test drive. And whenever I heard te noise if I hit my brakes it would go away, let go of brakes it came back. Interesting

12-30-2013, 08:01 PM
Fixed the clunking, regressed the slides in the calipers problem solved

01-21-2014, 10:11 AM
We'll I have officially ran out of ideas. Clunk is back and is back with a vengeance . Checked tee slides, still lubed up. Not sure anymore ball joints, tie rods, endlinks have all been checked. Even went as far as uninstalling the sway bar and reinstalling it making sure I didn't miss anything. Grrrrrrrrr

02-13-2014, 05:25 PM
