Cluck sound on passenger side on turns and put holes.

Cluck sound on passenger side on turns and put holes.

My jeep is giving clunk sounds on turns and driving to small put holes
The clunk sound is hear able and feel able on the passenger side.
I’m not sure if it’s the sway bar or the CV joint on the passenger side.

I looked under the jeep, and see that my sway bar is slightly displaced (moved) to the right-side (not sure if this is normal). Need some advice to rule some things out!

How to tell if the end links are shot?
How to diagnose if the CV joint is busted? (There is no grease on the rubber boots or cracks).

I will put some pictures up later, to show the slightly displacement of the sway bar.

I'm currently having similar issues with my '07. The source is my upper control arm. Using a long pry bar, I'm able to see way too much movement in the ball joint. I have some Rocky Road replacements on the way now.

After shipping, the pair is around $370. Hopefully, your issue is something simple like sway links. Disconnect them and slowly drive around your neighborhood. If the sound is gone, it's the sway links. If I have to switch one, I switch both. Even if the other side is good, it's probably not far behind the other in failing.

I have the same noise comming from my passenger side except it does not happen while turning, sometimes it happens when I put the jeep on reverse I hear a click or clunk and when I go over small potholes it sounds like the tire or something else is rattleing not sure what it can be, I replaced the endlinks, I had already replaced the swaybar bushings and I also had the upper control arm replaced, anyone else has an idea of what it can be I checked everything that I can think of and nothing.Also I had the RC lift installed recently and I believe that is when I started noticing the noise more.

Torque down all the suspension bolts. I have been chasing this clunk on a 2006 CRD Commander for several months, including replacing the sway bar bushes to no avail.

Then one day I decided to check ALL the suspension bolts,mans found one of them loose. Quite a simple fix, in the end.
