hi all
i have just spent a bit of money in replacing the steering rack, tie rod ends, upper and lower ball joints and also having a wheel aliment trying to chase a clunk noise that comes from what i think is the front right wheel area i cant see any damage to any bushes or any other components and it happens first thing in the morning reversing out the drive when i just touch the brake and the then turning to take off it can clunk 1 2 3 even 4 times as whatever it is moves i got no clue what it is but it seems like you can feel it through the steering wheel?????

any help with this maybe something i have over looked or maybe this has happened to someone else?

thanks

Wheel bearing maybe.
But that would have more noticable problems whist actually driving.
my cars steering rack "shudders" whilst turning.
I put some power steering rejuvinator (sp?) in it and now it only does it after long trips.
Maybe try that. But with a new rack I doubt itd be it.

Just a thought mate, Check the rack bolts as the rack may be slightly moving, as if it was a sway bar bush or the likes I would not think you would feel it through the steering wheel,

what are the upper and lower control are bushes like, do you have a camber kit fitted, if so and the alignment people may not of tightened them enough, I all, just go over all the bolts in the front end and make sure all is tight,

just as another thought check your K Frame bolts also,

Scotty

i been back to the tyre place where i got the wheel aliment done and we now think its the upper control bushes are dry when i got the adjustable camber caster kit put in they didnt use the proper grease and so now it creeks as it moves slightly??

and the creek noise was there before i did all the front end work
