Clunking and Creaking.
Back again with some more front suspension noise. I just got my tuition refund money so I'm looking at some new Monroe Quick Struts, but I want to make sure that'* the problem before I pull the trigger.
First noise is a dry, rubbery creaking sound that comes from the right front and happens while turning, especially to the left. Perhaps a bad strut bearing/mount?
Second noise is a "thud" or "clunk" from underneath the middle front of the car (I think...). This noise only happens when going over small bumps or potholes. Is this also a sign of a bad strut, or maybe the ball joints? Sway bar links/bushings are good, so that'* probably not it.
As far as I know, all struts/springs/etc are original with ~145,000 miles on them.
What does everyone think? Get the new struts or no?
