2006 Dodge Durango Question: clunking noise

 

Question

Bamafan, 4.7L V8, Indian Trail, NC, March 15, 2010, 06:20

When I am driving and come to a stop or turn into my driveway I hear a clunking noise. When the temperature outside is warm it is more noticable. It sounds like it is coming from the left front. The vehicle has 65,000 miles and has been making this noise for about a year and a half. We have had mechanics at Dodge and Chevy dealerships check it and no one knows what it is. Can you help? Thanks

    I see 2 sway bar link repair kits available from multiple manufacturers (AC Delco,Moog,and Mcquay-Norris) from $29 to over a hundred so it must be a common part that fails if they all carry this Check the sway Bar as the weight of the vehicle is on this bar it probably won't make noise untill you go over a bump

    Most likely its the ball joints probably the upper. I had a similair problem and it took 3 trips to the dealer before they found out what was bad.
