It sounds like a cv joint noise how dose the steering wheel feel dos it shake side to side when brakeing truthfuly im not that formilar with your car but its a front end problem. New struts would help but not completly elimitate it. Im not sure if the engine is inverted on your vehicle is it front wheel drive if so its likely cv joints

Backing up made clunk noise and when dry sterring it makes a clunk noise when turning wheels left and right


You're probably going to need a shop to look at the front suspension.
With extra weight in the back, the front could have been up enough to cause something to come loose such as a strut mount. And that could happen just from old age without the extra weight.
If it is a strut mount you may not want to change it yourself since the strut has to be removed.
I would suggest getting a couple of estimates, or more. In most cases the shop will want to do a front end alignment too because of having to remove the strut.

Had new struts/ shocks put in 3months ago it sounds loud and clunky on the right front side and now when turning steering wheel it grinds and smells like a belt is burning. Had mechanic look at it who put...


One thing is for sure, everything is not fine and it does not take time to break in new struts. You should of had a smooth ride as soon as you pulled off from the mechanic. I would most deffinately go back and speak with the manager of lead mechanic and make them ride with you so they can feel and hear for themselves. Be assertive as well. Don't let them tell you just anything. Now, there could be an issue with your rack and pinion or the steering box could be going bad. Either way, it will NOT get better on it's own. Don't waste time. Hope this helps.

Periodic clunck in front end


A 2003 SUV will clock in over 80,000 miles.

It's time to inspect the shocks and struts.

The periodic clunck you hear in front end can cause by


mud guard boot to metal strut body contact

worn strut center post to body of strut contact

worn rubble linkage

or combination to all of the above.


I would take the SUV to a good car wash that has under carriage cleaning.

Let the SUV dry and inspect it someone who can compress the front end.

If the front of the SUV re-bound two times then the struts will need to replace.

Function of lower Ball Joints and Strut Rod Booshing in 1988Mercu


Ball joints are a serious safety issue, especially if they are making noise. Strut Rod bushings slightly less so. I agree with you, if they are that bad you should have heard your noise before you changed the tires. You didn't sat what kind of noise, but the problems he suggested should make a clunk or snap. Your best bet would be to double check to make sure he properly tightened the wheel nuts when he changed the tires, if you have alloy rims they need to be torqued. If he just put them on with an air gun he may have damaged the rim which could make it break and fall off. And take the car to a repair shop that you trust and have them check your front end. They'll be able to tell you what the tire guy did. Don't put it off because you will find yourself in serious trouble if any of these things are the problem.

2002 chrysler mini van front end noisy .when you hit a bump.what


I had the same problem with my 2002 Town and Country Limited. I took it to the mechanic and had the sway bar links and ball joints replaced and still had the same clunking noise when going over bumps at low speeds. The van sounded great on the highway, but country roads were horrible. I was about to replace the struts and pay another 700 dollars when i read somewhere that the sway bar bushings could wear and cause the noise. I took it to the mechanic and he said absolutely not it would be a waste of money. Being the stubborn guy I am, I went to NAPA and bought the two bushings for 12 dollars and replaced them myself in an hour. I took the van for a test ride and the noise is completely gone. Please ignore your mechanic and replace the bushings ASAP! Pretty cheap try even if it doesn't work.

hope this helps
