    Front End Clunking

    So I developed an issue where I would hear a clunking noise from the front end when I would go over bumps, especially when one wheel would go over and the other wouldn't. Based on this, I assumed it was an endlink issue. I have RalliTek sway bars and endlinks. I checked the endlinks and they were fine and then I checked the ball joints, tie rods, etc. with no luck. After talking to LIC Motorsports, they suggested checking the bushings for the sway bars. Bingo!

    You can see that the bushings are totally worn out, allowing play for the sway bar:



    Replacements:



    This post is just for anyone that has a similar issue in the future. I learned that you have to grease these bushings much more often than I thought, especially in harsh winter environments. The rep told me to do it every 6 months.

    Thanks. I almost bought new endlinks to fix it. That would have been a total waste and wouldn't have fixed the issue. I am just trying to save someone from doing that.
