Bad ball joints?

821 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?

I had that same problem but it was more rattling than anything. I bought 2 new Gabriel shocks off ebay for $37 That is just a temporary fix though. I plan to get stiffer performance shocks later on.
