    I have a 06 RT Charger with simalar problem. Klunk noise was most noticable when turing left or right into a drive, over a bump and stepping on the brake. I lived with this noise until a front wheel bearing got noisey. Bearing is in the hub and sealed unit. Dealer replace both front wheel bearings and noise is gone!

Well not a shock really, sound like the control arms, or tie rod end or maybe cv shaft. I've heard that dreaded noise before and scary enough, repair shops tell you that you have to drive it until it breaks, I know that doesn't sound like it makes any sense but think about it, I you replace the wrong thing or get it looked at and they can't find the problem, it will wind up costing you alot of money whereas if it breaks you know what exactly went wrong. I know you may be uncomfortable with this solution, but if you're worried and you're still under warranty just go get it looked at, they may be able to find the problem. Hope this helps.

Jack up the wheel and see if it has play up and down and left and right. Have someone watch inboard as you move it. A bad cluck will usually show itself.

When I drive slow over bumps/speed bumps I hear a noise in the right front wheel well. The car does not seem take bumps well but seems to be better going over them at higher speeds. Shocks? Struts?...


It could be a bad Shock/Strut, Ball Joint or a bad CV Axle. Put the car on a lift and try to move the parts around to try to isolate the noise.

When going over a bump it sounds like something is hitting something in the wheel well


have the front end inspected but if you have never changed your struts, this could be likely.

Noise...driving over bumps...it sound like the front struts


If its a squeeking noise the rubber bushes on the shocks or the lower contol arm are worn out, if its a grinding noise it could be the shock itself. If it happens when you turn, a clucking noise might indicate a worn cv joint, or a worn wheel bearing. These are all things that need to be replaced by a professional mechanic, if you have the tools, the bushes might not be too hard to do yourself though. Hope this helps!
