Hey guys!

now i know im not the only one with the problem and it definitely happens with varying degrees, but i get a clunking sound every time i put the clutch in. I just had all my bushes replaced by pedders and the problem still remains (id like to point out that pedders also swapped my springs twice and did 2 wheel balances and cambers for $500 as well as replacing all my springs bushes)

Symptoms of clunking:
- Way worse when starting cold
- happens sometimes when releasing the accelerator quickly
- more prominent when pushing the clutch down quickly than with the accelerator
- sounds like a back and forward motion in the drivetrain or flywheel or something i dunno
- appears to be acting in the front half of the car
- phonetic sounding would be GA-DUNK, ga-dunk.... (don't laugh, might help)


any ideas peeps?
