CLUNK in front end - after backing out of driveway with curb at street
Backed out of a friends driveway that has a curb at the street (ie not a smooth transition) - a little too fast and the subframe banged against the concrete. I've scraped the front on concrete curbs when parking etc - but this was a good bang. Now, there is a sobering nasty clunk that occurs sometimes when driving. It is hard to pinpoint when/why/where it is coming from. I've been underneath the car and see nothing obvious. I figure I'll try to get under again and backoff- and then re-tighten all the bolts holding the subframe to the main frame assembly.
Any other suggestions? It sure sounds feels nasty.
culprit found - front sway bar end links were rusted enough that BOTH of them broke when I went down my friends driveway - the clunking is the pieces rubbing/banging against each other. Now - where to find sway bar end links ??????
I just got back from the autoparts store with some HeavyDuty Moog replacement end links. I don't care about handling on the SSEi over stock - It'* got two baby seats in it The '76 Corvette however, I would like to upgrade that a little - but that belongs on a different forum.
