Front driver's side suspension noise

Not sure what this is but it seems to have started today.. I don't know how to properly describe noises but whenever I go over a speed bump and relatively slow speed, I hear a noise on the front driver's side suspension.

It's not a grinding noise, maybe sounds like something's loose? Don't know really. Before I take it to them and they waste my time again, I'm wondering if anyone has a similar issue.

FYI - it's about 2 weeks old and has 1600 km on it only.

It could very well be just that something loose since its so new. Sometimes stuff just doesn't get torqued properly at the factory. I would have it looked at so there isn't any further damage done. Good Luck

Let's hope you're right! I'll take it to them this weekend and see what the deal is. I hate the inconvenience of being car-less, so let's hope it's a weekend job.

Front end Clunking noise

Did you guys get any answers on the front end issues? Seems like this is something common in the Challenger and I have a case of it too.....mine is a 2009 with 8k miles ????? Sounds like the damn thing is coming apart when I run on a ruff surface!

I had a noise coming from the front drivers side as well on my 2013 SRT. I realized that it wasn’t the suspension and that it was the aftermarket CAI tube/snout sliding in and out of the CAI box as the car flexed. I called Arrington about the issue and they instructed me to wipe white lithium grease around the intake tube where it slid in and out of the box. I have not had any other noise from the front end since.

Good Luck

Noise

Mine sounds like a broken shock ????? As common as it sounds with Challenger's, 300's and Charger's you would think someone would have put together a good thread with photo's and some answers (maybe the answer is out there somewhere). It must be something with these Dodge front ends and the majority must be the same issue or I guess these front ends are made of crap!

Those "clunks" can sometimes be a loose end link nut. If they're not really tight, they'll make a clunk every time the suspension loads/unloads.
