    On mine the arms that hold the springs where all twisted was making loud clumping noise when going over speed bumps? had them replaced and no more clumps! It was not as expensive as i thought as i remember as well!

    Most likely one of the Shockers! See if there is any fluid seepage from one of them. My 2002 C Comfort has needed two sets during its lifetime.

    i have also had the shockers done in the past but they did not make the clumping noise it was more like bouncing down the road not driving!
