Hello, I just got my car back from having some major repairs, they had to replace my front subframe, both lower control arms, front axle, rack and pinion. And I'm noticing when accelerating there is a slight clunk sound and it vibrates. But after I get up to speed it stops. I don't know if it's because they're new parts and need to be broke in or is something wrong?

Do you
have the same problem?

The noise will be something moving under load, I would take it back to who ever did the work and get them to re check their work.

I took it back and they drove the car and told me it's because I had put fix a flat in my front tire. I had put it in 1 day before I had wrecked the car. And it sat at the dealership for 3 weeks and he said it caused it to settle to bottom of my tire. Is this possible? Thanks

It may have some bearing on the problem, get it replaced and re try and just eliminate the tyre anyway.
