Loud clunking noise in 2008 Pontiac G5

My car just recently started making a loud clunking noise when I go over a speed bump or bump in the road. It's coming from the passenger side front end, it sounds like it's right behind the tire. There isn't anything wrong with the steering.
Any ideas

I have a 07 g5 and sadly its the poor craftsman ship in American cars and trucks. The bushing on the control arms have probably rotted out. and the way they are mounted puts the larger of the two bushings right next to the floorpan. So that is why you hear that sound as if it's behind the tire. I have the same problem with mine. roughly $20 for the bushings plus the cost to have it done. Or replace the entire control arm with an aftermarket for about $120-$200 each. I plan to just replace the entire control arm since the new ones come with both bushings and a new lower ball joint that is greaseable

HI, i would inspect the strut assembly for loose structure asap. i would also inspect the wheel knuckle and rotor and tie rod ends for loose fit as well. inspect thoroughly.

Its most likely the CV-joint assembly. the boot may have slipped off, allowing the joint assembly to dry up. i advise to inspect all the above before looking at the CV-half joint assembly and boot.

2008 Equinox has excessive road noise between 45 & 55 mph. Loud in general but really loud at speed.


Road noise is usually related to your tires. I would go to a tire shop and have them check it out. If your alignment and tire condition in general are good it might be the stiffness or aggressiveness of the tread.

Noise clunk


Melinda, since it is under warranty and you have already taken it to the dealership there is record of the complaint and attempted repair. Take it back to them. As long as it is covered under the warranty it shouldn't cost you anything.

My car makes a loud clunking noise at around 65mph.


Not sure if this is this answer, but I had a problem with a noise under the front end once....turned out to be the cowling under the front bumper....it was broken and it took a high speed to force it down enough to hit the road.

Good luck!!
