    Default clunking sound

    after having my car lowered i have had a clunking sound coming from the f/o/s wheel been getting on my nerves so after looking through some old threads i decided to change the track rod ends but still the noice was there so then i changed the bushes but no noice still there.so after getting totally confused i called in my m8 and found something new to me,upon looking at the shocks and making sure the springs were seated properly he noticed the three bolts that hold the leg in place from under the bonnet were shiny on closer inspection thy had been banging on the spring from above so a few washers later and no more clunking.thought this might help somebody else as it seems to be quite comman after lowering your beast
