damn boy you really are something . anywaythey are joints. usually when they go out they will makelud pops when going over bumps or holes. also they will have some play in them when they go bad.

for the past few months, I been having the weirdest semi clunking sound everytime i drive on a bad road. When the road is neat, no problem...its all smooth...but when its paved or broken or just plain not smooth, my passenger side rear just goes crazy with that sound like 2 pieces of metal are constant hittin each other really fast...its not really a clunk, but u can tell something isnt right. I ve gone back there, jacked up the car and check everything out...and everything is tight and neat. The one thing i did was used a rubber hammer, and hit the knuckle, rotor, and all parts down there to try and recreate the sound...and everytime i hit something, that weird sound kinda came back out, and it seemed to come from the ball joint area. I figured the whole thing was bad but decided to investigate some more. So now I came to find out it maybe just be the rubber boot thats bad ? I dont know...could a bad rubber boot be the source of this weird small clunk when i drive on a bad road ? what would be the symptoms of a bad rubber boot ? could it be anything else ? all my stock bushings are perfect shape i ve checked them out zillions of times

Sorry for the long description...but i try to have it as detailed as possible for other people who may have the same thing.

well a torn bood hon't give out any symptoms, but once they are cracked and the lube out the balljoints will go in a matter of days.

i check them and there was no grease.

it ended up being some bushing i install wrong. on top.

so i need the engery suspension bushing kit to fix the problem.
