If the clunk is in the transmission then it may be time to replace in that there is a history of some problems with the electronic transmission. Check the mileage and maintenance history. If it sounds like it is in the front suspension as your inquiry implies, it may simply be that the sway bar bushing and links are dry and/or in need of replacement. You might also check out TSB 23-01-97A (Front end noise upon deceleration) and/or 19-14-97 (Tie rod - popping in front end). Good luck!
I had the same problem with my 92 voyager when I bought it. For me it turned out to be the upper spring plates on the front struts. Had them replaced and it's been quiet ever since. NOTE: You might have to do an alignment if this is you situation as well.
Worn CVC joint. Could be bad struts causing the spring to bind. Depends how severe the clunk is. If it is struts, it sounds like the floorboard is getting hit by a sledge hammer.
If the clunk is most noticeable at takeoff or when coming to a stop, the u-joints on the drive shaft probably need to be replaced.
were the struts put together right? squeek- possible control arm bushings clunk- spring pads "struts", control arm bushings, swaybar links or sway bar bushings, loose steering parts depending at what speed
the clunk you,re hearing when turning could be either the stabilizer bar is loose or it,s bushings are worn. Also if your vehicle is equipped with rear struts (instead of coil or leaf springs) they could be worn or out of allignment. Rear struts must be alligned from time to time just like the front end on vehicles so equiped.Hope this helps and good luck,mannsvillain
The Transmission needs SERVICED A.S.A.P Hope This Helps.
You're a clunk-head...
Can you be a little more specific? Like where the clunk is coming from, and/or what you're doing when it clunks? FriPilot
If it is a cruching, squeeky kind of sound you most likely need your rear struts lubed. Minor and inexpensive.
try getting your CV Joint replaced.
Anyone's guess. You should take it to a shop and have them check it.
Your problem is generally the strut mounts. If it's making a clunk sound... Get new struts and mounts, and possibly sway bar links. I have a 2001 Volvo s40 t4 and have had to change these before. Hope this helps
Can be a loose shock, or loose suspension parts. Can also be loose exhaust system parts. I had a car that made a front-end knocking sound on bumps. Any little bump would do it. Turned out to be bad struts.
Vrrrrrrroommm If the driver puts his foot down. Brrrr-clunk-rrrrr-clunk-rrrrrrrrr With added gear changes.

It shouldn't ...
Check control arm bushings and other suspension parts specifically front swaybar bushings- these were a known problem for Chrysler- your dealer stocks them
My 91 Shadow with 100,000 miles had the same problem. Ended up changing the front struts, motor and transmission mounts. Problem solved.AnswerIf the clunk is not very loud, the problem could be that the front stabilizer bar bushings are worn or hardened. i have an 89 that did the same thing . it was the struts.
After replacing the struts, CV joints, tie-rod ends etc....the noise is still there. I found it's actually the top strut bearing plate that wears out. They are available at some auto parts. ....this is the source of the noise....
'clunk!' lol by jesica213.
You may have U-Joint problems
Don't switch on the fly, that's just stupid. You'll need a whole system overhaul.
