The bumping noise could well come from a blown shock and the blowouts from contact between tire and body or suspension when bottoming out.
You can do a primitive check of the shocks by 'bouncing' each corner and watching the action that follows; it they rise above static level once then settle to normal, they are still doing something. If they kind of rise and fall several times before stopping, the shocks are at least weak if not blown.
If you've never replaced them since the car was built, they are overdue.
If they are oil-filled, you may see oily stains around the body of the shock, gas filled are sneaky are harder to detect as defective since they leave no residue.

1997 jeep grand ch. has a clunking noise. when i turn the steering wheel. the noise sounds like a flat tire but louder.what could it be?


There is something wrong with one of your tires. Take it to a tire repair place soon before it leaves you stranded. My guess: a tire has a big lump on it which will blow soon.

Front-end vibration in my lincoln ls v8. you can only hear it when you go over 45 mph


I strongly suggest you check the lug nuts for tightness and if they are ok on your right front tire then go to a tire service center and have them balance and check the belts-either is very dangerous because it will A-fafall off or B-blow at high speed. Good luck!

When going over bumps the ride is very stiff, shocks have been replaced


Based on what you are saying it sounds like you may need nee suspension strut cartridges installed, any front end or tire shop would confirm this for free.

Steering wheel shakes when i hit bumps


Bad shocks will cause the front jump around. Also check the tires for uneven wear.
The entire front end should be looked over if the shocks are bad you may also have other parts worn as well.
