Long story short, after replacing the brakes disks/pads (front), shoes (rear) and front/rear struts and shocks on my 2000 Odyssey, I continued to hear clunking noises at the front of my car.
Google led me here, and I found several threads covering this topic with solutions. So I replaced the sway bar linkages and pins in the brakes and TA-DA...no more noise. Very happy camper.
2-weeks later, the noises were back. I pulled into the garage, crank the wheel and look under the front wheel well and see that the nut holding the lower part of the sway bar link on the drivers side has come loose! Oops...must have not tightened it enough. Then I look on the passenger side and the NUT IT IS GONE! OK, I'm not that careless that I did not tighten both of them.
Fortunately I had the right sized nut in my spares box and used that on the passenger side, along with a little blue lock tight to help hold things in place. (why is there no lock washer on these things?)
Month later, noises back again and both bolts are lose again!
UGG....need to get lock washers! I tighten them again.
Month later, noises are back but everything is tight.
Anyone have a suggestion on what to do now. It's driving my wife nuts. Maybe remove the brake pins and add more grease? I'm at a loss here
and very frustrated.
