    Suspension problem?

    Okay, so whenever I go over speed bumps, bumps in the road, or even potholes, I hear (and feel) pops, bangs, and clunks coming from the right front corner of the car.

    1) The car does sit level on even pavement
    2) I've never found any drops or pools of fluid anywhere near the right
    front tire, or front end of the car
    3) The Bilsteins shocks (10 '03) and Eibach springs (06 '01) I have were
    all purchased brand new.
    4) I don't hear any noise during regular driving
    5) If I take a speed bump head on slowly, I don't hear anything. But if I
    take it at an angle, that's when I can hear and feel the noises.

    Anyone ever have a similar problem?

    Hmmm mine is doing the same thing but on the left side. Some One told me some thing about the strut mount. One problem I am having is my car in the right rear is leaning about 1/4 inch, I replaced the rear springs with used one but still leans some. It seem to have help some.

    Start by gettin under the car and grabbing and shaking everything under there. My guess would be a broken sway bar endlink, loose upper or lower ball joint, loose tierod end.

    Do you have Sub-Frame Connectors?

    I dont have sub-frame connectors, I was trying to fix the problem so that I can put some relocation brackets on.

    I do have subframe connectors, but they don't seem to be loose or anything.

    Jack the front end up and like the one guy said, shake everything. From the side, grab the wheel from the sides and shake it back and forth. If you feel any freeplay, something is loose / bad and needs to be replaced. Do the same going up and down with the wheel as well.
