Well, I've replaced literally every piece of the front suspension ( inner & outer tie rods, main lower control arm, lower ball joint, thrust arm, shocks, brakes) except for the upper control arm & ball joint, springs, and sway bar (including end links). I have a rather bad clunk in the front suspension, still. When I go over an even bump (like a speed table), all I get is the typical 'whump' you would expect when going over a large bump, but if it's individual bumps, the clunking begins. I would just go ahead and order parts and try and replace it, but 1) It looks a little tricky (on a CDI anyways), and 2) I've already spent $5,000+ on suspension and tires recently, I'm trying to reign it in a bit. I've read a few posts about people wanting/needing to replace it, but none ever say exactly how.
