    Looking for some help diagnosing a CLUNK noise coming from front end. The noise happens in a couple different ways. When I back out of a space, hit the brake and then accelerate, a singular loud clunk noise happens. It will not happen again except if sitting at a sign or light and then do initial accelerating again. It will not be all the time, but sometimes. Also noticed it if coming from a parking space and accelerating and doing a sharp turn at the same time. Once again, it is a singular CLUNK noise. It may be just the initial acceleration making the noise and it’s in my head that it involves the turning, but I am open to any diagnosis** Went pulling and leak checking, but nothing was obvious to me. Tire wear is even and no issues with steering or pulling. Once again, it is only from dead stop or very very minimal roll and singular noise.

    Noises are difficult to diagnose over the internet, you sort of have to hear it.

    Have you looked this over?

    If you safely and securely put the car on jackstands and accelerate, does the noise still happen? Have you checked the strut bearings (if your car has struts)?

    good luck

    If I put the car up and accelerate, no, the noise doesn’t occur.
    Everything about the struts are good.
