Check your sway bar link kit and sway bar bushing also check control arm on passenger side . It could be one of them , they can make noise if they are worn out . It happened to my car too and I fixed the problem.

Symptoms of a bad cv joint


x10 , lug bolts,
or even cracked rims
or even bad wheel bearings
or even brake rotor bad. warped.
doing a hands on full inspection (man handling parts)
is the only way, guessing on the net is zero solution.
I can list maybe 25 ways to make noise. on car.
why do that.?

Right front clunking noise


It sounds like the CV joints are going bad on the passenger side drive shaft. Make sure none of the obvious like ball joints, struts, springs, and any other suspension parts aren't loose or broken. More than likely its the CV joints, but if you do one side, might as well do the other. (an ounce of prevention saves a major headache later)

1993 subaru loyale is making a horrible knocking/clunking noise


Hi the only other thing it could really be is the wheel bearing itself, usually in subarus they grind or clunk with wheel movement so if you go faster so does the noise, a garage would be able to tell you strait away as you cant really pull them apart without the right gear. Also check the strut, very unlikely but if a spring is collapesd it wll make a similar noise but wont speed up etc, its also worth noting that a cv can make the noises you describe but it would have to be completly destroyed and quite noticable hope this helps

Clunk noise from front passenger side when


That noise sounds to me like a Ball Joint problem. I would check to see if you have fittings to grease the front suspention.

Good luck, Allen

Does your car have rear disc brakes? If so, it is likely a failure of the emergency brake that is inside the rear disc.

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.
