I have a 2007 3.2 with 63k miles. They have recently just paved my route home and there are minor road undulations. It seems I can feel every one of them. Over regular bumps car act fine. Shocks pass the bounce test. Is this normal or is this car in need of shocks or other suspension components. I have owned car since it was 6 months old and never noticed this before.
I've always wondered if the bounce test really works. I mean, my car passes the bounce test but, damn, the suspension just doesn't feel right. It's a bit harsher than it needs to be as if the suspension is worn.
On top that I've started getting the clunking from the front end. All the bushings look good though. Although the sway end links look like they need to be replaced, I can't imagine that causing all the clunking.
The Sway end links caused all that clunking on mine. In fact it was only one of them. The car felt much better after I swapped that out. Mine is with air suspension but I don't think that would make much difference in this instance.
This is the part that was bad. Cost me all of $30 to fix. Didn't even have to re-do my alignment.
