Commodore sounds like it might be Australian?? If it was my car I would be looking for worn out bushings that are allowing too much movement. Control or A arm bushings for a start, possibly new bushing kits for the struts. It could also be possible that mounting holes have been enlarged from use and those would make the problem more obvious. Any chance you may have bent the control arms while driving? Since you had a mechanic do the work it should be safe to assume that ball joints would be good but it wouldn't hurt to check them as well. The springs could be weak enough to allow extra travel or maybe you got the wrong struts. Hope this helps.

Check the cv shaft boots, if they are torn the grease inside will have come out and now the joints inside are worn out. Worn cv joints will cause noises when turning.

2003 Mitsubishi Galant ES Clunking noise


the first thing i would check is the sway bar bushings they usualy go first. you have a bushing out somwhere. ive replace many struts because people have requested new struts and when we install them they come back and complain that the clunk is still there and all it needed was a bushing kit for $20
hope this helps
