Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Galant
My 2003 Mitsubishi Galant ES has recently been sounding rather clunky in the front suspension area (I think). Up until a couple of months ago there was NO PROBLEM. We went on our summer vacation, drove about 1100 KM, and now there is this clunking noise when driving over rough sections of city streets. I do not notice any noises at highway speeds, just when driving around town on imperfect road surfaces.
I kind of think it is the front struts, or at least the "one" on the drivers side. there also seems to be some less noticable clunking noises coming from the rear suspension as well. This all seems to have happened at the same time. Really quite weird. Are the struts on these vehicles meant to "wear out" all at the same time, and at around 95,000 KM.
The first thing i would check is the sway bar bushings they usualy go first. you have a bushing out somwhere. ive replace many struts because people have requested new struts and when we install them they come back and complain that the clunk is still there and all it needed was a bushing kit for $20
hope this helps

Well strut replacment is probably your best solution they usually last anywhere between 50000 to 80000 miles but it all depends on road conditions more than mileage or age
