Shock clunking sound
Noticeable rattling noise in the undercarriage on slightly rough roads and bumps. Problem appeared suddenly. Diagnosed by Lexus dealer. Lexus dealer replacement $675, independent auto mechanic $318
Clunking noise heard when I turn at low speeds. Sounds like something is breaking loose as I turn the steering wheel. Still happens as I changed all of suspension parts. Lexus changed the shocks, at least they say they did. The clunking still happens.
Took to the dealer. Said there was nothing to fix. 8 years later, another dealership stated that a part needed to be replacwd
Mostly noticeable when coming to a stop. Was pretty sure it was U-joint problem until I read this.
