I too have all sortsof sounds from my front end. Some snapping, some squeaks. I have yet to replace the complete CV shaft assembly on my drivers side as the boot is punctured and i assume this causes the snapping sound. It seems to happen at full lock and is more prone to happen when in 4wd and on rough ground.

Did anyone end up getting a clear answer on to what the clunking noise is? I have a 2010 D22 STR with 1800kms on it and its started to develop a knocking/clunking noise from the rear right somewhere when turning left and and going over bumps.

The more bumps there is the more clunks there are so it sounds like something is bouncing inbetween two surfaces. Checked the jack and spare wheel and doesn't appear to be any movement. I can slightly feel the clunk come up through the drivers seat as well.

If it happens anytime, might be worthwhile looking at the torsion bar bushes near where the adjustment is. Have heard this a couple of times on hilux's after the owner changed all the front end bushes and it didn't help.

"LOWER CONTROL ARM BUSHES" is the correct description. Upper control arm bushes also just as likely to be gone too.

Just for reference I have replaced all my lower and upper control arm bushings and still have a mystery clunk which has been there since new. I am literally running out of options as I have replaced all the suspension and now all the bushing. Also replaced the upper ball joint as it was leaking grease. Last thing is the lower ball joint but it looks fine.

This is an old thread I don't even remember posting in haha. But my problem a few posts up ended up being my body mounts. Got them replaced twice now under warranty since I got the ute.

Hasn't come back after the second time so fingers crossed as it's no longer under warranty.
