Tell them TSB 13-5-11. It has the new-style AD-1105 bearings (DV6Z-18198-A). Ask them to lube your bump-stops during the process with some grease.

Dropped my car off this morning hope they fix something.... Fingers crossed! Needed an oil change and tire rotation so needed to bring it in anyways. The clunking and rattle annoy me so much especially because I can hear them so well everyday driving down my work parking structure hard to forget about it... :/

Wow that's awesome. If my car had no rattle or clunk I'd be 100% happy camper! I'm jealous!
