The dealer replaced them at 50,000 miles (not under warranty) and I'm now told at 63,000 miles and 18 months later, they are close to needing replacement again? Have never noticed the clunk others describe and I'm skeptical.

    who told you that it needed replacing AGAIN? maybe they are assuming that the bushings are not replaced yet...
