    Just one more note of thanks guys for this site. I had a front end clunk after I did a suspension refresh earlier this summer (Koni yellows front and rear, front control arms, FCABs, strut mounts, reinforcement plates, sway bar end links). It seemed to start a few weeks after the refresh and I figured it was the tie rods which were also shot but I hadn't done. So just replaced them this past week and went and got the car aligned. Still had the clunk on driver's front. Read through this thread and went out and checked the top nut on the strut...and it was loose. Passenger side was tight. Doh!!!

    My driver side Koni yellow also likes to loosen itself. Blue loctite on just one side lol.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'll keep an eye on it. Funny that driver's side loosens up. I used the new nuts that came with the struts and tightened them down the same on both sides before installing.
