Well I have at least 3 threads about the clunking sound from the front suspension and no one in town seems to have a glimmer of an idea as to what it is... we even replaced the sway bar link as mentioned by Mark Cummns then took it from the dealer to a suspension "specialist" to have a look and admits something is wrong but doesn't know what or how... so now my next issue is has anyone had any problems with the power steering? This morning I took the C out for a spin and it sounded like an old Ford truck with no fluid (ok, not that bad but you could hear it) Took it to the dealer and they said the fluid is ok so it'll stay overnight on tues/wed so they can take a look at it.

Seems like this 01 C is like my 98 ML in Los Angeles

[:(]

Clunk

I had the same problem with my wife's honda accord. I brought it to honda, the man put AIR in my tires and it was fixed!!! We thought it would cost us thousands. Check your air pressure. Buy a nice digital gauge for 10 bucks. Try that.

CORRECTION IN REPLY

Sorry, I was talking it over with the wife, and she was right, we had TO MUCH air pressure in the tires makeing that same noise you described. They let the air out to like 33lbs and it was fixed. The pump at the gas station was reading 33, but in reality it was like 80lbs!!! The suspension and front end sounded terrible. Again, check tire pressure.
