I have a 1995 Chevy Caprice thats making a clunking sound only the right front side. And when turning bends it makes a sound like I am getting a flat. But I am not.

Do you
have the same problem?

Jack the tires off the ground and see if theres alot of play in the front end componets, also check upper control arm bushings.

Thanks for the reply. I will have them checked. The person I bought it from said he fixed the barings. Is that the same as any of things you said to check?

The wheel bearing is different than the control arm. The bearing may not have been properly tightened.
