I've got a 1997 ZJ with 111,000 miles. Ever since I bought it (Last March with 92,000 miles) it's had a clunking sound coming from the front end when going over bumps.
It seems to happen when the bump only hits one of the wheels. If the bump in the road is wide enough where both wheels hit it at the same time, then there's not much noise (if anything at all).
However, when the bump only hit one wheel (like most frost heaves here in the northeast) then it makes a loud clunking sound. It will happen with the bump is on either side of the car.
I took it to a front end shop a while back and they thought it might be a bad sway bar bushing, but they weren't sure.
Has anyone experienced something similar to this? Any ideas what might be causing it?
Any help or insight is much appreciated.
