88 80q Clunking THANKS
Thank You to all who responded. I found the problem tonight.
I had previously checked the ball joint, but just visually. I got the car up
on the jack stands and tightened up the lower control arm bushings as
suggested. They were fine. For the heck of it I grabbed a hold of the nuts
that hold the ball joint on. When I twisted the outer one, it fell off in my
hand. The noise was the ball joint moving foward and backward, pivoting on
the one stud. I could not find a replacement bracket so i used (2) 10MM X 1"
LONG bolts with lock nuts. It seems to be holding just fine after my 10 mile
