I may have the same issue. Lately, I have been hearing random clunking noises while driving (sounds almost like my tire kicked up a rock under the car). The noise is so quick I can not tell if it is originating from my car or if I simply just ran something over. Very rarely hear this clunking noise so I've been assuming it was nothing to worry about but realistically they do sound like they are originating from within the car usually general area of tires. Any ideas?

Well i had my sway bar link replaced and the mech didnt tighten it all the way so took it back,problem now fixed.. you might want t have your sway bar links checked. how i narrowed it down was i pushed the car at roof line side in a rocking motion,<around the driver door area> also might want to look at front control arm bushings..good luck..
