For a few months, I have been hearing a rattling sound under the front end of the car. Only when I go over potholes and bumps do I hear the rattling. When I release the brake, I hear and feel a clunk from the pedal it feels like. What could be causing the sound and is it something I need to fix asap?

Ditto on the CAB mine have gone out multiple times. Seems like the drive side wears out faster for some reason. I just ordered a new set of aftermarket FE5 arms with bushings and ball joints installed. Advance has them for like $132 each but then you can use promocode WD518 to take $50 off making them $82 + tax. If you want to go the cheaper route you can just order moog CAB for about $15 each and rent the press tool from the auto parts store. I just went with the FE5 loaded arms because I plan to eventually upgrade to powell CAB which require the FE5 arms

On my 2008 in my case it was the lower door hinge on driver's side. Learnt this the hard way after changing every possible suspension part.
