this has a pretty good chance of being the fix. my clunk is really loose sounding when its cold like 55 degrees or so.

here is a link to the photo.
if someone can post that pic directly into a forum post go ahead and rip it please.
the credit card is .025 thick.
I tried a shim .015 which was too thin, and .035 is too thick.
thats a lot of space. I have said a few times that the frequency of my rattle would indicate that loose parts must be about .010 apart to make that kind of sound.
we will see tomorrow, as my other cars are blocking me in the garage right now:)
