Ok great thanks! I’ve ordered two new bushings.
I think the problem originated from the fact I mistakenly torqued the new arm when the car was not on the ground at ride height.
The arm replacement does not require anything special, disconnect the ball joint (lower) and lower strut forks, unbolt, and remove, that’s it.
The engine lifting you are talking about is for the anti roll bar removal. The FSM states it’s required to remove it, however even that you can get around if you grind down an Allen key
I’ve ordered new bushings and will press them in and hopefully that’s going to resolve the issue! It started clunking about 10-15k after I replaced the arm and I’ve replaced the strut, coil, sway bar links, inner arm bushings (they were cracked and twisted already due to my mistake).
I feel like this is the problem finally and am very thankful your thread popped up and made me jog my brain thinking this has GOT to be it!
In addition, my chassisears tells me the noise is from or around this area.
Will update when I get them pressed in
