    My 2019 GT Premium (non-PP) has developed a front passenger side clunking sound. It seems to happen when going over small bumps, and is really only noticeable at low speeds (under 30mph). Doesn't occur when turning the wheel, just going straight over small bumps gives a bit of a hollow clunk sound.

    I've checked everything I can think of. The wheel exhibits no play if I try to shake it horizontally or vertically. I replaced the front sway bar endlinks with Steeda ones, that didn't resolve the problem. Sway bar bushings appear to be tight. I verified the strut mounts are tight, and that the strut tower brace I installed is torqued correctly. Brake calipers are tight as well.

    Any suggestions on what else to check?

    On my '16 I had a worn out bushing on the front control arm tension link. It made a clunk at slow parking lot speeds. Replaced with Steeda parts.

    Check your front subframe/k-member mounting bolts.

    Bad strut. I had a brand new Koni that was defective that exibited the exact same symptoms.
