Clunking sound coming from driver's side

This is a discussion on Clunking sound coming from driver's side within the General Help forums, part of the LSx Technical Help Section category; Yup. If it was a rotor (front) problem, it would get worse when you brake. This makes me lean away ...

    Yup.

    If it was a rotor (front) problem, it would get worse when you brake. This makes me lean away from the possibility of a rotor issue. But, if you take it all apart, take the rotor up to a place that turns them and have them measure the rotors wear.

    Does the steering wheel shake only when braking?---> Warped rotor
    or does it shake just driving around?---wheel/tire issue

    No it didn't shake only when braking, it was when accelerating and stuff. I found out the problem though. The wheel was lose. I feel so stupid, I tightened it before though so I don't know why it came lose again. I used some air tools from the base to tighten the wheel up and the problem is fixed now. I guess I didn't get it tight enough before.
