Hi!

I have a 2016 Ghibli Diesel with 40.000 KM. It is lowered with H&R springs and I drive it with 21" wheels.

On driver's side I have a "klonk" noise on little road bumps ... it is a sound you typically have when the stabilizer end links are in bad condition.

I have ordered 2 new ones and today we changed them both (OEM 67005003/5004) but the noise is still there.

What do you think could it be? The wishbones look like new, nothing cracked or damaged ....

Thank you very much!

Peter

Hi Peter,
It could either be the swivel joint on the top or bottom wishbones or on the steering swivel.
It's hard to find out which one, as they are in tension supporting the weight of the car.
You have to lift the car and use a crowbar to try to make them move to see if they are slack.

Peter,
There is one wishbone at the top and one at the bottom, each with a ball joint.
Always very difficult to assess which one is the noisy one.

I have read that the lower ones had many issues...? Noisy...

The part numbers have changed later to better ones?

So today I was at our garage and they tested my front axle.

The top wishbones are perfect but the bottom wishbones move very much where they are fixed. Not on the side by the wheel, but on both points near the engine...

Sorry for my bad English :)

So I think best solution is to change both sides and than the noise should be gone...

Hi Peter, yes it is generally a good idea to replace both wishbones at the same time.
Then you have the tracking done again.

Hello would you have front interior pillars for sale (where front seat belts are attached) ? I need the Beige Alcantara ones. Thanks

Hi Peter,
Look whether it is the ball joint which is slack or the bushings.
Ball joint you cannot fix, but the bushings if you find the same ones, you can press new ones in.

Hi Peter,
Sorry to hear your problems.
Not many things left.
1 - Upper wishbones
2 - Stab bar bushings.

Upper wishbones are like new, they are tested. What do you mean with stab bar bushings? Do you have a pic or part number?

What do you think about the shock absorber?

We will put the left one to the right side and look if the noise is still left or if it goes to the right side...
