Yep, I've been sorely tempted to go buy something else, but my resale has dropped like a rock.

12.5k trade value. Incredible.

On a related note, I have noticed that when I wash the car, and I spray water into the wheelwells, the clunk quiets down temporarily, which leads me to believe some lubrication is needed to keep things quiet. I'll be using a liberal amount of grease on the bump stops, between the bearing and strut mount, and the strut bearings themselves.
