What is the clunking sound during braking?

Greetings Larry,

All the posts I have read show the strut rod bushing or the guide rod bushing to be the culprit if there is a clunk in the braking force toward the end of the cycle, isn't this true? The other item concerning the timing chain. Is 4 degrees really considered considerable stretch to roll in a new chain when the MB service manual shows offset keys for up to 16 degrees offset? I'd think unserviceable would be beyond that point. Is this not so?
