Check the stabilizer links. One end is attached to the struts and the other end is attached to the stabilizer bar. If they are sloppy they are bad. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

SOURCE: clunk noise from front left suspension

My guess is a strut bushing/bearing, but have your front end checked out by good shop to make sure it isn't something else more dangerous.

SOURCE: Clunking and knocking noise from rear when hitting bumps.

-it could be the sawy bar linkages
-but also check to see if the struts are leaking or that it looks damp
-but because you said it doesn't look like it bouncing when you hit a dip most likely it could be that the struts are dead
-check to see the cars ride hieght that would give you a clue

SOURCE: Clunking noise coming from upper passenger side when I hit a bump.

If you aren't afraid of jacking up the vehicle, you can test to see where the problem is coming from. Jack the vehicle up by the pinch well (most newer cars have grooves cut out or that can be popped out behind the front wheels). When the wheel is in the air, try moving it side to side, then up and down. Excessive side to side movement indicates a tie rod end, up and down indicates a ball joint, and all around indicates a wheel bearing which would also be a cause for the clicking sound you are hearing.

Most auto shops will check this for you free of charge when you get an oil change, since they're trying to sell you things anyway.

SOURCE: Front end clunk noise

You might have to drive the car on ramps so you can lay down under the front of the car.Have some one bounce or push the front of the car down over and over as hard as they can while you lay under the front and look and listen. You might have a loose shock absorber or another front end part.
Wear safety glasses while under the car.

Front end clunking noise


Take the brakes apart & clean up all rust,check everything out
& lube things when putting back together
Have to do that at least once a year

Don't need machining every year or new pads, but have to knock
down the edge on the rotors & get rid of rust & lube (anti-seize on
everything but inside the caliper slide bolts, there you use the synthetic caliper lube

The clunk could be worn drive axle joints or drive shaft joints
or shocks
When your on the brakes or hit bumps your loading things differently & the clunk goes away

I have a 2002 dodge caravan and when you turn it makes this clunking noise what can be the problem.It only makes this noise when u turn


The most common sources of noise would be sway bar end links and/or bushings, drive shaft CV joints [which often make a ratcheting noise], ball joints, or tie rod ends. Rarer would be wheel bearings/hubs but they often will make noise in straight line driving also. Either way I would be sure to have it checked out as soon as possible as it could be a big safety issue should something fail while you are driving it. I actually own one of these and have replaced both sway bar links and bushings on mine due to the klunking noise they would make at slower/in town speeds on bumps and turns.

Something on the front 'clunks' when I hit a small bump in the road, what could possibly be wrong?


I had the same problem. It was the front sway bar bushings. I took it to the dealer when it was still under warrantee. The replaced everything from struts to the steering linkage. And it still made the annoying knocking noise. I was changing the oil one day and while I was under the car I started looking where the noise was coming from. I grabbed the sway bar and pulled on it. It was loose. I bought bushings for about $12 and that fixed it.
Hope this helps

I have a 1999 dodge caravan and it has a clunking noise what can that be?


Possibly the sway bar bushings. Over light bumps a noise in the front end? It was a common problem.
