Clunk sound from the left front of my 1999 300M

My mechanic checked all suspension items and found nothing that was worn out or need to be replaced.
What could be making this noise?

    I have the same problem. Clunking road noise. I changed the sway bar link, sway bar bushings, Upper and Lower Control arms, coil springs, struts, strut mount, left half shaft(Axle) rear shocks...still have rusty hinge sound on turns and a loose clunky sound going over the smallest crack in the street. I don't know what to do. HELP

My 2001 saturn sl1 front end clunk when driving


You have not described it very well so it could be a number of different items.

If it sounds like a rotational clunk the it will possibly be the CV joints that need replacing.

If it is not a rotational type clunk then it will most likely be a suspension component. It could be as simple as a worn suspension bushing that it allowing metal to metal contact or something much more significant in the front suspension system.

Without physically checking the vehicle it is difficult to be more definitive but needless to say you must have it checked out and the cause identified.

Peugeout 306 clunking sound HELPPP


check the suspension ball joints and rubbers . Check the steering ball joints and the rack end bushes for wear. Any front end steering noise is a cause for alarm as it is indicating a part worn excessively and is ready to fail

Clunking in the frount


A clunking sound in the front is very often the CV joints. This should be more obvious in a slow tight turn. If it is not the CV and is more noticeable on rough roads it could be any one if the suspension joints.

Violent clunking when truck starts moving. checked obd codes nothing showed up. possibly engine mounts or bushings?


It's hard to tell, from your description, as to the extent of the clunking.
If it seems to only and constantly occur whenever in forward motion, bumps or not, then I would first check your rear differential, (if 4x4 then your front differential as well).
Check fluid level(s) and if okay, remove cover and check for worn gears and any metal shavings on the magnet on bottom of housing.

Worn gears can toss your vehicle around, any make stomach turning clunks and other awful noises. I've recently replaced a front differential on a 1994 Dakota. It would make same clunks as you describe and a few times would make my back end seem to 'hop' while driving highway speeds. I would check this quickly.

If it only seems to happen over bumps, then your guess on engine mounts or bushings is probably the best guess.

Squeking sound and loud clunking sound when i accelerate the gas pedal. sounds like it's coming from the front driver side wheel.


not enough info for diagnosis, Try putting bar soap and check tension of fanbelts for squeaking noise of the belts as a cause. The clunk maybe worn or damaged suspension components, cv joints or even worn or broken motor mounts. Start with these items...
