Yeah, except that probably isn't the issue.

This is the same rattle/clunk that I've been dealing with on my car since ~600 miles (at 6000 now), and I know that there's nothing in my springs. I've personally had the car into the dealer three times; I had the shop team leader drive the car, had the service manager ride with me, and of course the noise disappears with the additional weight of another person in the front passenger seat. They claim to either not recognize the noise, or that whatever they do hear is normal.
