So the story. I had my suspension put on over the summer (Koni Coilovers). I rolled the car out after the suspension install and I hear clunking over every bump. I got my exhaust installed not too long later (MTM). One day I decided to look under the car and saw the tie-rods completely shot.
So I ordered my tie-rods, installed them, crossed my fingers the clunking would be gone. Nope, clunking still there. DAMN IT!
The last couple of days I've really been debating to order new control arms or take the front suspension off and see if I could find any loose items. My exhaust had been making loud rattling sounds at idle and buzzes around 2700-2800 RPM's so I decided to take it to the shop that installed my exhaust and see what they could do. They found a few spots where the exhaust was hitting the frame of the car and they adjusted accordingly.
I went for a test drive and not thinking about it... no more clunking. YES!!!! All my worries are gone!
I just have some buzzing from 2700-2800 rpm's and occasional idle buzzing. I know its the last muffler where the tips come out. The top part (lip) of the muffler is hitting the frame or whatever is right there. There must be like 1mm of clearance because its an on/off thing but it buzzes enough at 2700-2800 rpm's. I'm going to try and wedge a little bit, maybe stick a big piece of rubber between the frame and the muffler to keep it from hitting anything. Thats what you get for buying a used exhaust, doesnt always fit perfect the 2nd time around.
I'm just so happy, thought I'd share the story and possibly some solutions for you all that have clunking.
