Volvo S80 Abnormal Noise From Front Suspension Due to Worn Control Arm Bushings

My car makes a lod clunk when the weight is shifted to one side especially entering a driveway. I had the front struts and strut mounts replaced. The shop also check and tightened all the suspension parts. the front end was quiet for one day and the clunk returned while going into a driveway. The noise is not heard when driving straight only when the car's weight is shifted to one side. I'll have the control bushings checked. - Visitor
