I looked out the bay window to the left of my desk. It'* still there. I think. Just a huge mound of snow that can be seen. It'* sleeping and I don't want to disturb it.

That Neon stopped over and I gave it a look see. Nope, lower ball joints are fine, no play at all, and you don't have upper ball joints. I looked around for the source of the clunking when driving. All I could think of is the spring seems to be a little out of place and might be moving a little. He'* going to compress the spring and rotate it a bit. Looks like there'* a raised area that the spring should be up against. See if that helps any. That saves him about $300+
