Bad ball joints?

828 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  quick4door
When I go over bumps I get a clunking noise and if there are enough bumps it starts to sound like a rattle. I also noticed that when I accelerate and go over a smooth dip in the road (when the shocks compress) that the wheel that makes the clunking noise starts to vibrate. Is this a bad ball joint or worn a CV joint?

Mine does the same thing. I have a bad shock (front left) bushing causing the cluck going over bumps. Haven't had time (or cash) to fix it yet.
