I've got a clunking sound coming from the right front when I drive over not-so-smooth ground. It also clunks if I saw the steering wheel back and forth (I can hear it and also feel it in the wheel). It also clunks when I grab the top of the tire and shake it vigorously with the car on the ground.
The front control arm bushings are new so that's not the issue. I know that the tie rod boots are torn so the tie rod is a likely culprit but it occurs to me that a wheel bearing or even a bad ball-joint could also explain the symptoms. Is there another test I can do to figure out which it is?
