Front Suspension problems???????

Have an 06 Chryslerr 300c thats reaching 50,000 miles. Usually at low speeds under 15mph and hit a small hole/pothole you can hear kind of a louder clonk. Anyone have any idea what it may be? Anyone having same problem? is it common?

Outer tie rods on the C are a known issue. Could be that or a ball joint possibly??

Done and changed those and much, MUCH more.

This last week I had my Eibach shocks and struts replaced with Koni STR.T shocks and guess what?

My clunk is gone now. The Eibachs were all leaking at the seals.

Check your shocks/struts along with your tie rods, ball joints, sway bar end links and bushings.....

I took my car in last week to my local stealership as I had a similar clunk/rattle on the near front side. I was told it was the suspension bushes but they couldn't repair it for me as there are apparently no spare parts for this problem anywhere in the UK ! They are currently on back order but have no anticipated delivery date. The car is due for its MOT early next month, and if this doesn't get repaired, will probably fail! What sort of car manufacturer is Chrysler these days? Has anyone had the same problem getting the repair carried out?

Yes it is a common problem with these cars, i have it also. I replaced my outer tie rods recently but the clunking noise is still present, I ordered front sway bar bushings and waiting to get them installed. I will let you know if this solves the klunking noise.

The drivers side outer tie rod was replaced early on the car and the passenger side was replaced at 47,000 and now the drivers one is going out!!!! But its coming from the passenger side for sure so its not the outer tie rod. Im gonna probably take it to the dealership and see if they can do a quick check. I hope its not the lower control arm lol

I just bought 06' SRT 8 with very low mileage...only 27,000kms (approx. 17,000 miles) and noticed a small clunking and some minimal vibration which appears to be coming from the front LH/passenger side. Could it be some of the same things you guys are mentioning? It seems like the mileage is to low for components like sway bar bushing, tie rod ends, and ball joints to be wearing out?

What do you think of your STR.Ts??? I installed a set about 6 months ago, not bad but the front shocks are still is a bit soft for my liking.
