Before I replace my ball joints and tie rod ends is there and anything I should look at that could be making a clunking sound? I have a 02 WRX with 134k on it and have had a clunking sound for about two months coming from the passenger side. I had thought it was my sway bar bushing as when trying to find where the noise was coming from, I noticed that there was a big chunk of the bushing missing. Today I replaced the sway bar bushings with polyurethane bushings. After a quick test drive I was still getting a clunking sound from the passenger side. I put it back up in the air and tried to move things around I cant find the noise. I only here it when I'm driving and hit a dip or uneven pavement on the road and coming out of my driveway sometimes. So what other things should I look at before I replace my ball joints and tie rod ends?
Also are there and manufactures I should stay away from? I plan on just buying from autozone But have been looking on ebay and amazon also.
