took my 99 outback to the shop today because it was "clunking" went I went to turn either right or left. the mechanic took it for a ride and said it was my right front axle.
150 bucks later they called the same afternoon and said it was done. I drove less than a half mile and it was still the same. clunking on any turn. left or right. so took it back and the owner told me that they would have to take a look at it in the morning.
they gave me a ride home. this shop is the best in my town. they win the "Best Auto Repair" shop award in my town almost every year. they have nothing but 5 star reviews on Yelp.
I posted the problem here in a couple other threads. it squeals or makes a noise on the right front side, but there is no noise if it is gliding in neutral and the noise stops when I push in clutch. it's been this way for at least a month, maybe more. I drive with the radio loud all the time..
anyway this morning, it clunked once. and then a little while later it clunked, clunked , clunked when I was turning. that's when I took it to this shop. you'd think this was a problem this shop could diagnose correctly since our town has a million Subarus.
what do you think it is and what kind of questions should I ask when they call me in the morning? I really can't handle an expensive surprise. its been a bad time for us since the holidays.
