Re: Clunk!

Thanks to everyone who helped in finding my 'clunk' problem - after looking
at just about everything else, it turns out mine was lower control arm
bushings, both sides.  Didn't even look at them as a possibility because I
didn't think they would cause that severe of a physical 'clunk' sound,
but...there wasn't very much of them left.  Hope this helps someone else
