Have a fine clunking noise under the front end (mostly on passenger side, haven't really noticed it at all on driver side) when driving and hitting small bumps. 30 MPH and a small bump like hitting a manhole cover or a seam between concrete slabs on the roadway (similar to the bumps you feel when going over a bridge) is all it takes for it to make a clunking/rattling noise.

Spent a couple hours under the van but nothing obvious appears to be wrong. I even tried to get things to "wiggle". Does not appear to be the exhaust system either as all the hangers are in tact and in good condition.

Good afternoon,

This noise could be from many things.

1. Stabilizer link kit

2. Loose ball joint or worn joint

3. Lower control arm bushing

4. Shock absorber

5. Loose wheel

6. Wheel bearing
