    2006 DTS Clunking Noise

    I hear a clunking noise whenever I step on gas, brake, turn left or turn right. I have had the lower control arms on the front replaced, the front lower engine mount replaced, the left front hub bearing, the rear engine mount, the left side engine mount, the left rear lower control arm, the right rear lower control arm, the front struts and bearing plates and the right front hub bearing replaced to the tune of around $5500. I am still hearing the same noise. Anyone else having this problem? Anything I haven't replaced? Thanks.

    I had a clunk up front when turning and my tie rod was bad. Clunk went away after replacement.
