Question about 1999 Subaru Forester
When I apply the brakes the left front corner of my car clunks. It sounds and feels like I have a flat tire, but I don't. I just paid a bunch of money to fix the heat shield because the dealership claimed that was the problem, but just drove it home and the sound is still there.
It sounds like the control arm bushing is probably cracked or broken. Unfortunately a clunking while braking can be a lot of issues, but I bet it is coming from the control arm bushing.

Try to go to someone you can trust and is going to listen to what you need fixed on the car. If you are mechanically inclined and can safely change a tire then you can probably look at some of the components yourself. Minekee or Midas will inspect your car. I think Minekee will do it for $10.00. It could be loose lug-nuts,broken brake rotor,ball joints, bubble in tires side-wall, broken anti-sway bay, or bad wheel bearing.
