This is the anti-sway bar (also called a rollbar) bushing. It is relatively cheap and easy to repair.

Every time I go over a speed hump even slow or a bump in the road there is a thump or bang from the front right wheel


the dealer is having you on
thumps , bumps and the like indicate something worn , loose or ready to go bad quick
it could be lower ball joints, upper control ball joints or upper mount if strut suspension
could be worn rubbers in the stabilizer bar area
Best take it to an accredited suspension specialist shop and have it checked out ( get a quote to fix) before it fails and causes serious damage
if it is serious and costly get a report and then front the dealer for the cost of repairs or talk with a lawyer

2005 cadillac front end thumping noise


That's a tough one since there can be so many different causes, starting with something loose under the hood to a problem with the suspension (sway bar links, control arm bushing, ball joint, strut mount, motor mount, etc etc). This can be a serious safety issue, so if it were my vehicle, I would first get to a dealer or alignment shop right away to have the front end suspension, tires and wheels checked.

Bad bearings, or another worn suspension part. I'd have it checked by an alignment specialist.

Clicking noise in front end of car when going over bumps


Probably the front struts your sway bar links can cause the same noise if they are failing but you should have heard or felt somthing while turning regardless of bumps if the sway bar links were bad. Like the other people said start with the struts.

My truck makes a loud thump from the front on the passenger side.


Most likely you have worn out suspension parts. A front shock could cause the problem because the rubber bushing holding it in place may have dried up and fell out. Upper and lower A-arms have rubber bushings as well.
Best to have the front suspension checked out before it gets worse.

2002 325i Knocking noise front suspension


This noise is likely caused by swaybar end-link joints. Newer cars use solid rods with ball and socket joints, to connect the ends of the swaybar to the frame. These ball and socket joints at the end of these rods, create an amazingly noticeable and annoying noise in the car when you go over the slightest bump. There is no way to test these things unless you disconnect one end and check to see how tight the ball is in the socket just by wigging the with your hands. If they move around at all without pressure, they are no good. Go to ebay and search "bmw endlinks " for a picture.
