    going over any small bump in the road creates far more noise than expected. a clunking sound emanatesfrom the front end.

I am getting a huge clunk in the front end of my 1997 Ford F-250 when turning into a driveway with any type of dip to it.

Any suggestions on fixing Front end clunking noise on 05 Chrysler 300?

I quit the Chrysler dealership aroung 2001, so I am not familiar with that model, however dodge/Chrysler did have issues with sway-bar links/ball joints/tie rods over the years. your clunking could be from any of these items or from the upper strut swivel plates. hard to tell without my assometer in it.
