Fixed: Driver side clunk

1272 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Tripwire
I occasionally get a clunking noise from the front driver side. When I hit large bumps. I took the wheel off and checked everything. And all looks good. Everything looks new, shocks aren't leaking. Bushings look great. Nothing that I can visually see looks bad. But today I noticed while driving through a parking lot with large speed bumps. If I turn on sports mode, it doesn't do it. Which leads me to believe that it is the shock tower itself. Or possibly just the stiffness of the shocks in sports mode is causing it not to compress all the way.

Was wondering if anyone had any tips on what I should check?

Your symptoms point to a faulty shock, especially with your switch to Sport mode and the sloppiness of the shock lessening. If you're still on your first set of shocks with a 2014, they've held up a long time. Changing out even the fronts or rears results in a very appreciable ride difference after driving with old MRC units.
