a clunk from the front end when brakes are applied espesialy at low speed when coming to complete stop. If rubber boot is bad on them they are probably shot .It is a DIY project if you have done some other rather involved front end work as there is one step where a lot of pressure must be used(I use a come along) and could it be potentially dangerous if not done right.........

For me, it was 'multiple' *thunking* noises whenever driving over rough surfaces. Sort of the same noise you'd expect if you had a loose suspension component.

I'd always heard that the mounts would only make SINGLE clunk noises whenever stopping or taking off from a start....and it seemed to make sense. But, this certainly was NOT the case for me. In fact, I did NOT have the typical single clunk noises as normally indicated.
