Clunk sound in front suspension
Posted 10 October 2005 - 12:29 PM
I have a funny "clunk" sound coming from my front end, I only hear it when hitting a bump. I have inspected the suspension visually, nothing obvious that I can detect. Is it possible worn sway bar bushings can cause this? Are there any known trouble spots that might be related on the Legacy/Outback? Any help is appreciated.

I posted that a while back, it's a TSB from Subaru regarding a "clunk" in the steering and suspension that sounds like what you're describing. My car does it big time, has for quite a while. I didn't attempt to get the TSB performed, doesn't sound like many other people have either.
Another one of those endearing Subie quirks

I found a few replies on nasioc from folks who had the dealer perform it, but I am interested in details from some ShadeTrees who have attempted it.
1stsubaruparts.com shows this illustration (where #2 is the "COUPLING")
Unfortunately I cannot confirm that this COUPLING matches the TSB COUPLING because the site accepts part numbers but does not display them.
But I am still not 100% on the location of this part. Is this the coupling which can be seen in the middle of the column just above the inner CV joint?
Looks like quite a job to remove/replace, but the TSB lists only 0.3 hours. Anyone have a service manual page that explains this procedure?
0.3 hours doesn't see TOO scary.
Lots of questions, hopefully lots of answers. Thanks.
