Can I pick your brains?
I have done my research and read all the threads I could think of, but I still can't find the problem.
I have a heavy CLONK when pulling away, when braking and when going over speed bumps on a turn. If I go over a bump when straight, there is no noise.
So far I have:
Tightened the steering yoke
Replaced the steering rack, including all tie rods
Replaced UCAs (complete) and all other suspension bushings and lower ball joints
Replaced spring isolators
Replaced anti sway bar links and sway bar bushings / brackets (later type with ridge)
Had all the alignment, camber and castor reset
Installed a 2" Revtek lift (i.e. Struts dismantled and reassembled but struts still original)
And still I have the CLONK - which started as slight and occasional, but is now happening all the time and getting louder by the day.
Any ideas guys?
As I live in Dubai the stealership reeeeeally goes to town when charging for parts. I've been using Rockauto for most things though. They are great, but it takes 10 days to get each part and I can't send stuff back because of the shipping costs, so I have to keep buying more bits and trying them out.
Pretty soon I'm going to have a completely new 2005 WK!!
