Hello and Thanks !
My 01 Forester has a fairly loud klunk in suspension. It happens
when stepping on brake pedal, and when going over bumps in road (not
I heard what I thought sounded like something slamming, it sounded (I
think) close to firewall, as if (oh no) a rear engine mount was bad,
but I'm not even sure it has a rear mount, However cannot be sure where
that slam really is coming from. The slam is simultaneous with the
klunk, maybe even is the same thing, not a separate sound
* Even with light pedal pressure.
* It also klunks when brake pedal is released, but not quite as loud and forceful.
* Steering wheel does not pull or jolt when it happens.
* Has new struts.
* If stomp hard on brake pedal, klunk becomes louder, like slam.
Also when (not braking) tires hit the road at bottom of a driveway
ramp where road surface angle changes abruptly, or when tires hit the
start of the same driveway ramp (going up).
Any & all help is appreciated !
