front end 'clunk' when braking..
I'm getting an annoying clunk - actually two clunks, which I can hear and feel in the brake pedal, when coming to a stop.
This occurs not long before the vehicle stops moving - it does not happen when initially braking, so it appears to happen as things 'unload' and the vehicle re-orients itself (instead of being lunged forward during braking). This happens even at moderate speeds.
There are two noises - the first sounds more like a 'clack', the second like a 'clunk'. If I smoothly decelerate towards a stop I can almost anticipate when it will happen now.
All the front suspension bushings, as well as tie rod ends, steering stabilizer, and other obvious wear components have been replaced (and some were pretty bad). I had a torn motor mount and replaced both of them as well.
It feels tighter now, but still gives me this one-two clack-clunk.
The trailing arm bushings were also replaced, and I've got the rear A-arm ball joint and bushings which I haven't installed yet. However, this problem 'feels' and sounds like it's coming from up front.
I haven't touched the transmission mount, nor looked into U-joints or the swivels - I don't know if these could be the source of these noises.
Any other ideas?
I dream of the day I can just drive this thing and not have to fix stuff... I'm still paying for buying something online from a real sheister without a proper inspection.
