    Might also try http://www.gmpartsgiant.com/cadillac-parts.html I've found too many mistakes in Nalley.

    On my profile I do not see the about me tab so I can add my car.

    Maybe I need to go the computer version instead the Mobil app.

    ----------

    Ok I have a clunking noise and can really hear it on the right front end. I press down on the right front end and hear it. I took wheel off and felt around I think it is the cv axle. But am wondering if it can be the strut or engine mount but they appear fine. Any suggestions.

    A suspension clunk has nothing to do with motor mounts or axles. I'd look at the sway bar links and bushings, and the strut mounts.

    broken sway bar links are very common - and a very easy DIY project -
    and YES - if one side IS broken - you should replace BOTH sides -

    Worn CV axels usually click when accelerating in tighter turns.

    Tie rod ends can make a noise somewhat similar to ball and socket type sway bar links.

    I changed sway bar link. It did get rid of some noise but I still another clunk sound. It seems it is coming from the front bushings on control arm. Does that make sense. Can I just change bushings in control arm or do a change the whole thing. Also when at a stop and I barely start accelerating I hear a clunk but goes away about at second gear. Can this be the same sound as when I ride on bumps or uneven roads. Thanks.

    You can change the bushing.

    THAT sounds a little like a motor mount.

    Ok I changed out 2 front tires and had them balanced. I did see that the back shock mounts are bad and shocks look bad also. If rear shocks are bad would the car sag touching the fender. Also I got up to 65mph and car shakes bad. So I do not think it is due to the tire balance. Maybe it is bad cv axles. I did change the sway bar link. While I was down there I did I inspect the cv and did not see or feel Damage to the boot. I did grab it and shook it and it did make a slight clunking noise which makes me think this might be the shaking issue maybe or can it be the drive shaft. just strange it does it only at higher speeds. Pls help thanks

    If the rear elc isnt working or leaks it may sag with a load. But unloaded springs hold it up. Mine did get a shake around 65ish when my front motor mount went. But i dont know how often that's the case.
