Clunking form the front end.... Help!!!

07-14-2005, 07:31 PM
Over the past few weeks I starting hearing a thumping coming from the front. Today while i was bending down to put air in the tire I hit the side of the tire with my had and heard a metal thunk. It's on the left side front. When I hit the left side of the tire (that is if your looking right at the tire) and hit it, it moves a bit. The balljoints seem fine, I did the test were you put a rod under the tire and move it up. The tie-rods also seem fine. If anyone has any ieda's on what this coulod be from, please reply. I have a trip next week with the car so I need to fix this quite soon...

strut mounts

edit-- i just reread your post, and strutmounts would not make the tire move side to side. yea...i agree...sounds like you need to tighten your lugnuts...
