Same here, actually I wasn't sure how to best describe it and then saw your description... Couldnt explain better! My car is at the dealer -I used this exact explanation- they ordered parts might be done tomorrow I'll let you know what they change (writing on phone beats all grammar/syntax rules!

Definitely let me know, my car is going into the shop Friday morning. If I can have this done too that would be great.

Maybe a nail/screw in your tire?

There's apparently a new TSB out for this issue. My car is in the shop now but I'll try and post the parts list when I get the invoice.

The new tsb is just a revision of the old suspension clunk one with new parts and specifies only the strut bearings and the bolts or something, unless there is still an issue with the struts and springs, it no longer replaces all the parts allegedly, but just the side that is showing an issue.

Great. Looks like they're just throwing BS parts on the car to say they're trying. What a nightmare.

Yep and after they jack it up in the air and start monkeying around in there with the parts swap. It will seem fixed for a few days. Week tops. Then the noise will come back on ya..
