Off Road SHO Posted July 7, 2012 Share Posted July 7, 2012 96 Legacy Outback with a 2.2 swapped in. I had bad swaybar end links so I replaced those. Clunk came back, turned out to be nuts on both end links worked themselves loose. Tightened them again; clunk only in right front turned out to be loose bolt AGAIN. CRANKED them the hell down and now the clunk is back. Put the car back on the lift but all the bolts are tight still. Ball joint looks new and tight. Upper strut mount bolts are all tight. Absolutely no slop in the bearing or steering tie rods. With the right front wheel jacked an inch off the ground and with a large pry bar I can compress the strut spring about 1/2" and see the strut's center shaft move up and down a corresponding amount (more or less). Should the strut rod move that much in its' mount? Thanks for any suggestions. Tom Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
