I was under the car at the rear, and *reefed* on everything under there. Nothing budged and everything looks kosher. The sway bar links looked newish.

ok I'm starting to get worried now. I thought it was some loose plastic but it seems we are now talking suspension problem(?). Yes I have sunshades.

My day keeps on getting better...my wife came home today and made me a coooooold drink. The price was curb rash on one of the back wheels on the balck car

Back to the subject...do I need to take it to a mechanic or is this something you guys can help me with PLEASEEEEEE

By the way....thank you Jason once again for your time. I'll make sure to bring cold beer next time I knock on your door and maybe a belly dancer (make sure Lauren is not home )

Wait, you have sunshades? Those suckers are notorious for clunking...

I say we meet up Friday and take the car apart to find the clunk. Then, we install my gaskets! Or bleed the brakes and change out the rotors and pads...

Bring it over to my workplace, I'll have it put up a hoist for you and check around.
No charge!

Let's throw Jay in the trunk and go for a ride. I'll bring a flashlight for him to look for the rattle. Speed bumps and sudden stops are your friend when chasing down odd noises.
