I have extended warranty up to 100,000mi with a $100 deductible, and suspension components are supposed to be covered, but at 71,000mi, I'm definitely beyond the basic bumper-to-bumper warranty.


I'd like to verify this before I take it in again and incur a $100 charge for "tightening suspension components" again...


Lately, I've started hearing occasional "pops" from the suspension when manuvering in parking lots, specifically when the steering wheel is racked all the way to one side, and I decelerate to a complete stop rapidly.
Right as the car comes to a stop, there is a "pop" from the front driver's side.
I'm also getting uneven (wavy) tire wear in the front despite repeated alignments.
Hmmmmmmm. Those *pops* don't sound like ball joints. I've also had one front lower control arm (LCA) replaced because of a worn bushing, but I don't specifically recall the noises or signs that a worn LCA bushing produced, sorry...
Being on this forum for years, I can say there have been many posters with clunks and pops up front and there have been multiple causes diagnosed, from ball joints to LCAs to struts, strut mounts and steering components, and I'm forgetting a few more I'm sure..

Can you elaborate on how to do that at home if possible on a jack?
Or does the vehicle have to have all four wheels off the ground?



I'd like to once and for all get rid of this ridiculous clunking, and hopefully shaking during braking, but the dealership has been unable to fix this issue over the last 4 years and at least 4 visits, despite "tightening suspension and steering components" several times, as well as replacing both front struts, and strut mounts.
Hi sport_4x4,
We understand how inconvenient it may be to continue returning to your dealer. We're available to provide you with additional assistance if you plan to continue working with your dealer to find a potential solution to this.

Hey all. I have been having some rattling noise coming from the front right side of my 18KL trailhawk, while going over bumpy roads. I have an audio clip of the sound. I plan on taking it to the dealer soon. suspensionsounds
I'm thinking it's the strut mount.
Good After noon. What was the issue with the front end ? i have the same noise on my 16 trailhawk.

They basically replaced parts in that side until the noise went away. The work notes weren't very descriptive and didn't say what exactly the issue was.
