    Suspension Noise

    Hello All,

    The car is a 2013 Abarth with about 50K on it. Since purchase with about 44K it has had a clunking noise in the front suspension. This does not occur all the time and I cannot reproduce the noise when manually moving the suspension up and down. It requires a rather abrupt input and seems to be more prevalent when the suspension has a side load, such as cornering. I have been busy with many other projects so have not investigated yet.

    Does anyone have any experience that can help me head in the right direction?

    Thank you in advance for your knowledge.

    There is no unusual feeling through the steering wheel.

    Could be control arm bushings, struts, strut tops, bump stops, sway bar bushings, etc.

    Agreed. The combination of the 2 (cornering and bumps) sounds like struts or control arms... but there are exceptions (bearing, bushings, etc). It might help if you can have an observer ride along to 100% diagnose where the noise is coming from.

    Here's hoping your inspection allows you (or mechanic) to quickly diagnose the problem. Intermittent clunks can sometimes be hard to locate; sometimes it's not obvious on a visual.

    If I were a gambling man... I'd inspect the front sway bar links.

    My guess is the strut top mounts if they are oem. They usually wear out around 25,000 to 30,000 miles in my experience. The best reason to buy the DNA top mounts.

    I am not familiar with the DNA to strut mounts. Can you please provide any information about advantages and sources?

    Thank you in advance.

    If you go to DiCorse's site, they have the DNA top mounts. The owner Bob Z will tell you all about them. I have them on my Sport and on my wife's Lounge. They replace the OEM upper strut mounts. They have a real bearing in an aluminum assembly that is adjustable for camber and caster. So, you shouldn't ever need to run the cam bolts for alignment. They eliminate the "thud" you get when the OEM top mounts start wearing. They are expensive but, if you plan on owning the car for a long time, I think they are worth it. I have many DNA products on my car, and I've never had any problems with the quality of their products.
