Loud Clunking in Passenger Wheel when Braking After Sway Bar Replacment.

Seems to only happen when accelerating, braking and slowly going over bumps, when you drive fast over a bumpy road you don't hear a thing. We believe it's the control arm bushings, but were not a 100 percent sure.

The sound kinda sounds like a creek-snap.

We just changed the broken sway bar to SS 24mm one and I was wondering if some of the bolts we may have took out are one time use, that they stretch and wont work again?

I have the same problem but mines on both sides and only happens when going over bumps. Haven't had time to figure out the problem yet.

Yeah, that's not the moog part number, but them being FE5 replacement is fine.

So it's not that...yeah CABs do have a tendency to go bad...

Moog vs Ac delco Control arm bushings?

Moog on the right, Ac delco on the left, moog filled in the slots that GM designed in the original control arm bushing.
