Despite the noise from the half shaft. I mean even though it sounds similar to the clunk. The fact remains IMHO, that my dealership temporarily fixed my issue 100% for the brief 10k miles before the noise came back. As far as I know they did not replace anything to do with the half shafts, CV joints, etc. Only the Springs, Bearings, Top plate, bolts, etc. So I think were barking up the wrong tree by considering its CV/Shaft related. Obviously the noise has to be related to one of the parts replaced.

Has anyone had a close look at the dust boot on the strut? Is it pretty soft material or thick plastic that could be binding up? I recall in this thread that someone once applied a Bunch of Lithium grease somewhere on the dust boot (maybe up top) and it resolved the clunk until the grease dried up. Hmmmmm
