Some dealerships just say big words to make them sound like they know what they're doing.
I posted the invoice on page 78

The dealer had suspension tech test drive the car with chassis ears and isolated to "front strut jounce bumpers" on their invoice. I was skeptical... so far after a month, no noises. The invoice says "unusual creeking going over bumps". I only heard rattle/clunks for months going over the slightest of uneven pavement. Now I only hear clunk if I hit a big bump.
