Thump/bump/thud under left front

Sometimes when I am turning left and hitting a bump (i.e. entering driveway, turning into parking lot) I get a noise under the front end on the drivers side. Does not happen always but when it does it is annoying. Have pushed on, pulled on, hammered on just about everything under there and nothing 'seems' to be loose or moving around. Not sure other than to take it in but then again it does not do it all the time.

Steering is good, shocks are tight, springs are in place, everything on the axle looks ok so not sure.


Any ideas?

I had a thump in the front on my that didnt do it all the time but when it did it was when turning like you into parking lots and stuff. Took it to dealer and they replaced sway bar end links and it cured the problem. Sounds like the same problem hope it all gets worked out for yea. Shawn

I have a similar problem..its my mudflaps rubbing against my tires due to the offset of my rims and the way the flaps are mounted.
