What to check next?

I have a 2009 335D that when I hit some bumps I can hear a clunking sound in the front suspension. I thought it was a strut mount but I have changed my front struts and mounts already. My tires don't show any abnormal wear to point me in a faulty balljoint. Is it possible it is the steering rack itself making all the noise?

If it was your daily driver car for some time and you just got some single issue - we could try to diagnose it or pinpoint the location, but since you just bought the car as I understand and already have lots of issues (including your thread about steering issue) I would suggest to take it to a local indy shop diagnostics for them to lift the car and properly check everything suspension related and steering. Have you done that before you bought your car (I'm assuming not, but still)?

Oh gotcha! I saw you have only 5 posts and for some reason I thought you just bought it lol my bad. Hopefully some knowledgeable forum members will join discussion to help you out. Try posting this at Suspension sub-forum - you'll get more to the point responses
