clunk or metallic thunk?
Slow speeds only?
On my Traverse, I had a metallic thunk.- I could hear it at slow speeds. Im sure it was there at fast speeds too.
Anyways, I Started replacing parts as mileage increased. 140,000+
Sway bar bushings, sway bar endlinks, control arm bushings, and the noise was still there.
Finally came time to replace the lower control arm (to replace the rear bushing and ball joints).
I also was going to replace the struts. Thy only had 45,000 miles on them (replaced at 100K)but the jounce bumper was loose on the strut rod- and the manufacturer sent me new replacement struts.
Well, when I did the swap in parts- I found where the thunk was coming from
It was the strut COIL hitting the upper mount. The rubber gasket had moved/worn through allowing the metal to metal contact on 2 parts of the coil. right hand side- and the left-- where its pink.
So every time I hit a bump or something -imagine the coil hitting.
3rd pic is what the new one looks like.
Im wondering if you have the same issues?
