Chrysler Concorde Problem Report
Chrysler Concorde Noise in Front Suspension Due to Worn Sway Bar Bushings/End Links
Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.
Single occasional thumpish clunk from front end particularly on slow turns in parking lots, driveways, from stops in intersections, etc. Never during any kind of steady straight-line driving or gradual curves. - Visitor

while I am riding down a street I have this awful noise coming from my front end and I have had several estimates on replacing the entire struts system and it is not inexpensive by a long shot - Evonne Hogue

Wheel wobble and noise at 35 MPH+. Took imeadiately to the shop. Mech put it on the rack and found worn bushings and links. They were replaced and the front end aligned. - Visitor

Have had these replaced about 4 years ago and the problem is back again. - Visitor
clunking in front end occasionally became a dangerous situation when car became a little squirmy. Motor mounts and tie rod mounts replaced by dealer. - Visitor
Upon noticing the noise in the front suspension, I went and bought the parts at Auto Zone and took it in to a repair shop and I had them put the parts in. The cost of parts at Auto Zone is much cheaper that what a repair shop would cost. Most repair shops will allow a customer to purchase their own parts. You would just pay for labor. It usually works out better for you and your budget. - JNielsen
