Thanks Steve. Turns out the axles are fine with normal movement. I guess
the clunk is something in the body itself such as plastic support around
the headlights. It doesn't do it on paved roads, only gravel. The growl
that I continued to hesr turns out to be the other wheel bearing is shot.
Anyway, I traded it off last friday for an 05 Taurus. Wheel bearing gone
at 41K and brakes at 25K. I think it was abused before we got it so best
it went down the road. Oh, and I did tell the dealer of the problems.
