Question about 1997 Honda Odyssey
I am hearing a single "clunk": noise when I make a left turn. it isn't all the time; just when I turn. Last summer I replaced both shocks in the rear and was warned I had maybe 3000 miles left on rear brakes and rotors. (The shocks were so rusty from N.E exposure , had to be drilled out!). My Master Honda Mechanic who knows my van for 11 years told me before I left NY not to ditch it. Could it be a ball joint and would it be expensive to fix if it's that or an axle problem? I have maintained it every 3K miles and done any work needed. Thanks
I would expect to find a ball joint, upper strut mount, or control arm bushing to be bad rather than the axle joints. Usually if a CV joint is going you hear a clicking noise as the wheel is turning not just one clunk. One clunk usually means something is shifting.

you get all the lug nuts tight, the weight of the car on a loose lug can make that noise from the wheel, jack the car up and manually spin the tire, if you can give a more indepth description ill try to help, i have OnDemand5 if you have any other questions

If something off the road tore the boot, yes but if it has not been tore long and you don't hear any clicking noises around corners, you can just replace the boot.

SOURCE: noise in rear brakes
I would remove the tires and see exactly what it is. Its good I dea to at least inspect to make sure everything in par, that way you can also inspect the rear pad, that may even causing the problems. Its hard to say and solved the problems not seeing the actual car. once you have the wheel off you can actually spin the rear wheel to see what causing that sound. There also a metal tab attach to your pad to give you a warning by rubbing to the rotor making squealing sound that the pad is getting low and need attention soon.

have you checked the wheel bearings? with that wheel raised up off the ground with a jack and on a jack stand, place your hands at the sides of the tire and give it a shake, do the same with your hands at like the 3 o clock and 10 o clock position as to not get your hand hurt if something moves loose, and shake there to, if you feel any play it could be a tie rod, or control arm, spin the tire and listen for any noise, if you hear any you more then likely have a bad bearing....

a clunking clanging noise sounds very much like your stabilizer bar end links and bushings. you have a thin rear "sway" bar on the rear of your odyssey. this can cause a whole lot of noise. grab each side and pull/push. if it feals loose, replace the end links and bushings.
