got this possibly new thing, not sure I dont make u-turns too often, but I
made 2 within the last 2 days, about 3/4's of the way through one I get a
clunk from what sounds like the right front, a mile later I found an empty
parking lot and tried both left and right turns but it wouldnt do it again
but it did do it 2 seperate days. One of these days I will get it up on a
lift and begin shaking things, just wondering if anything comes to mind for
anyone from my description.
Do you have the wheels that have the "liner" to keep the brake dust off the
outside of the wheels?
I bought my wife an 03 Expy with these dust "liners", when I made a hard
right turn, it sounded like the left front wheel was gonna fall off!! I took
it to back to the dealer, the mechanic "adjusted" this cover and it has not
done it again.
On each lower control arm is a strut that goes forward to the engine cradle.
I recall a TSB regarding loose bushing "pockets" in the cradle.
If you have access to a MIG welder, the fix is simple. Remove the nut and
outer bushing, clean and prep the area and weld the "pocket" to the cradle
using 3 evenly spaced beads about 3/4 to 1 inch in length.
