I have a 2007 Chrysler 300 SRT8 with about 85,000 miles. Recently I have been having some noise out of the front right side. I took it to Dallas Dodge and Rockwall Dodge and they said nothing was wrong and I couldn't reproduce the sound. After a while it was driving me nuts so I started replacing parts that I thought it could be. I have replaced struts, tie rods and motor mounts. Today I found out that if I made a hard brake I could hear the sound. So I recorded it and hopefully I can get some help from someone.

When at the youtube page, just copy the www.address and paste it. As for the sound, is it like a creaking? That's what I hear, but haven't heard on my car, just clunks. Have you jacked the car up and tried to move the wheels? I think it's-side to side/tierods, up and down/ball joints. G/L

You can hear a noise over small bumps after you have been over a few speed bumps or have been braking hard. Once it starts it gets louder. In the morning it will not do it until you have brake hard a few time or going over big bumps like speed bumps.

Yea. I have been trying to fix this problem for a while. I almost gave up and got a new camaro but I'm a college student and don't want to be stuck with payments for 6yrs. My 300 is almost paid off.

2 small bolts to remove the heat shields then 2 bolts ( one either side , sorry cant remember the size) to remove the bush plate then just remove lubricate the anti roll bar & refit . Jack the front up to remove tension from the bar? You could wrap the anti roll bar in ptfe tape where the bushes go

No class today and I'm off of work. I have been taking my car to a local shop with an air lift since the car is so low and it's hard to get floor jack under the car. What's your method?

Low profile jack or a scissor jack to lift it up so that a normal jack will fit , did it work ???
