    Suspension Help

    I have a 02 m6 Camaro and i decided i wanted to change my suspension so i replaced my front and rear shocks and springs but now every time i make a sharp right hand turn i feel a clunking noise coming from the front left hand side i though it was my lower control arm bushings, so i went ahead and replaced bothy my lower control arms but now it still makes the same noise. I think it might be the rack and pinion but i am not sure what do you guys think?

    Did you go back over every nut and bolt to ensure you got them all seated and tight?

    Sounds like your saying the noise started after you did the shocks/struts? Could be you didn't get your strut mounts tight enough. Pop the hood and get the front end bouncing real good and see if you can tell where the noise is coming from.

    Check the mount I broke one of my mounts a.couple weeks after swapping my suspension. The new mount was defective and bent my strut.

    I agree with checking the strut mounts. What is the car's mileage?

    there is 92xxx miles on here i checked the mounts they seem to be fine every thing is tight and in the right place, and yes the noise did start as soon as i replaced the front struts i think im going to take it out and see if maybe it was not fitting in there right?

    My strut mounts looked ok from a quick look, but I finally figured out the rubber was splitting around the center ring, you could barely see it.
