yes, this is a very common thing. the proper term is front thrust rod bushings, they wear out, the way to tell if they wear out is if going slow and you step on the brake you should feel the steering wheel jump up and down slightly, the car overall should feel loose in the front end when pressing the brake suddenly. the only way to fix this is to replace the bushings, good luck.

What causes a clunk noise in the front end of your 2005 Saturn Vue?

If the Saturn Vue is anything like the Saturn ION, chances are it's the front sway bar bushings. A design flaw caused them to wear out prematurely. This causes a clunking noise when going over bumps. It is also very possible that it is a front control arm bushing. Start with the sway bar bushings (since they are cheap) then check the control arm bushings.

Use a ball joint press. You can get one from Harbor Freight. You'll most likely need the accessory kit as well. You can use the press in different configuration to press the old bushings out, and the new bushings in. Even the front upper bushings in the axle can be pressed out, although it may be a little tricky setting up the ball joint press to do the job.
