Loud Clunking sound on driver side front wheel area?
I've got an '85 190E 2.3 that's in decent shape and I'm considering putting a rebuilt transmission in, but now the front wheel area on the driver side makes this loud clunk every time I drive over a pot hole or hit a bump. Any ideas?
I'm hoping it's the shock (which I have not replaced in 100,000K), but could it be tie rods, ball joints, or something costly along those lines?
Also, how much would it cost me to have a rebuilt transmission put in?
I had some quotes in the $2500 - 3000 range, is that about accurate?
I just don't want to make any payments, and I can't buy much for $2000.
Other than the transmission, is there anything (i.e. expensive) that I might be looking to replace on a car this old with 150,000 miles?
I just want to make a logical choice, so thanks for your comments!!!
