We took my Jeep to church yesterday morning. It had the usual soft thump/clunk after braking, but only twice. It made no other noise until we got close to church, then when we pulled into the nice, smooth parking lot, that horrible "something's about to fall out" noise happened, and how. It even made the noise on the passenger side when I got out of the Jeep (and no, I am not an oversized person). I had my husband take it to the shop today to have it looked at. He said the guys looked and saw nothing loose on the front end when they did the oil change, but they kept it most of the day, looked at it, drove it around, and only were able to reproduce a soft sound a couple of times, nothing like what my dad, my husband, and I have heard. I should be happy but I am still wondering what's going on. The shop owner said that if I am driving around and that bad noise starts up again, to come to the shop and have them listen to it. He also said it may
be struts/shocks (can't remember which), but he wouldn't feel right charging us to replace them and that not be the problem, when he's not even sure that is what it is. Good to know they are honest like that.
