Noise from Wheel Area


Recommended Posts

I have noticed that I have a "clunking" noise coming from the front right wheel area. I have no idea what it could be & would appreciate any insight that some of you could provide me with.


I only here it when I hit a bump or am driving down a rough road. I have tried pushing it down & letting it "spring" back up to see if it is a shock issue but I do not hear it then.

Likely a control arm bushing gone bad. In which case you will have to replace the control arm, as the arm & bushing are sold as one unit. An enterprising mechanic MAY be able to replace just the bushing, but I have not heard of a success story with that yet.


If it happens when turning, could be involvement of the steering rack.
