Default ATTN: Suspension guys, need help with noise. (FIXED)

Need some help with a noise thatí* driving me nuts.
Iím having this clanking noise every time I slow to a stop.
The noise comes from the front of the car, on the left most of the time and the right sometimes.
I had just replaced the endlinks up front because the drivers side was broken.
After I replaced the endlinks the noise seemed to go away for a day but them it came right back.
I had the front and rear suspension looked at and everything else looks good.
Infact both of my Bonnevilleí* have this noise.
The noise happens whether I stop strait, stop turning left, or stop turning right.
This Applies to my 98 SSEi and my 95 SSE.

Anybody else have this problem or is this a Bonneville thing?

Thanks for your help.-toddster

did you even read what he wrote??

I'm sort of at a loss. Not sure what it could be. How tight did you go on the endlinks?

Todd...clanking..over bumps? just stops?

Maybe strut bearings..jack up eash front tire..put hands at 12 and 6..wiggle, then 9 and 3 wiggle.. any movement in either position?

Clanking at slowing to stop. Not over bumps.
I had the strut bearings looked at to.-toddster

I personaly did not put them in, I should ask my mechanic how tight he put them in.
I had them installed when they put the new tranny in.-toddster
