Jeffrey Davis Posted November 4, 2006 Share Posted November 4, 2006 :) Today I had the front struts replaced on my 98 LS 400. All seemed well until I drove over some bumps and then I noticed a clunking sound from the right front. The shop was closed so I looked at the tops of the struts and decided to check the torque. The 3 bolts attaching the top plate to the body were fine on each strut. The left strut suspension support center nut was torqued correctly but the right strut suspension support center nut (one with the noise) was loose and when I tried to tighten it it just spun the rod. I noticed that it was screwed down about 3 threads less than the left. My question is could this be causing my problem and how do I fix it? I wonder if there is a bad thread on either the nut or rod? All help is appreciated and the sooner the better - if possible I need to drive this car about 600 miles next Monday and would like to fix it tomorrow. Thanks in advance, Jeff Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
