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

The front control arm bushings wear out, resulting in alignment issues and squeaking and/or knocking noises from the front end. Worn bushings will require replacement.

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. -
