clunk in front end
I've got 62K miles on my 07 hhr. For the last 15K miles I've noticed a clunk in the front end. It is progressively getting worse. At first I only noticed it going through the street gutter leaving my driveway. It was noticeable when going through at an angle, loading and unloading the suspension on the corners. I've had it in the shop and they replaced the right transaxle, but his did nothing to fix the clunk. I read on another forum that replacing the lock nuts on the end links fixes the problem, but it didn't on mine. I called gm and gave them my vin number. Found out my intermediate steering shaft was replaced just before I bought it at around 30K miles. This leads me to think the intermediate shaft is clunking again. My next step will be to replace the intermediate shaft again.
I have the other problem too, the one when the temp is below 32 degrees and when I hit a dip in the road it sounds like the front spoiler dragging the ground, but after the temp warms up I don't hear the sound. This is a seperate problem and is definatly due to temperature. Since I live in Louisiana, it's really not a problem, but the dang CLUNK is something I can't live with.
