Noise in Front Suspension Due to Worn Sway Bar Bushings/End Links on Dodge Intrepid

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.
