Trackrod arms were nice and tight, so I left them. suspension drop links were also good. I cannot see any cracks in either spring and the car doesn't make the noise when suspended. I'm thinking suspension top mounts. Is this a common Laguna II failure? I have checked the bearings but this only happens when I turn. I have also checked the driveshafts. There is a small amount of play in one and absolutely none in the other. Help me! i'm stumped
I had this exact same problem. If it turned the wheel left or right i'd get a clunk. Mine turned out to be a dried out strut bearing which was causing the spring to jump along instead of moving smoothly and causing the clunks everytime it jumped. Best way to check is to have somone turning the wheel back and forth with you sticking your head in the wheel arch.
