my 05 AWD LX element makes a pretty loud "clang" when coming to a stop. not always... but usually the first 2 or 3 stops i come to in any given drive. it's DEFINATELY not brake pad/caliper related.

anyone else have that issue? when i bought the car used from honda, they said it was bad struts, so they preplaced the struts under warranty... it's just as loud, if not louder now when it does it.

the sound makes me think of a tie-rod being stretched and getting that metallic CLANG sound...

thoughts?

THANKS!

Did they replace the strut bearing when they did the struts?

i dunno what they did exactly.. but when i look behind the wheels, the support apperatus thingos that are just below the shocks/springs are new looking.

i'm a motorcycle guy, and i know pretty much everything there is to know about motorbikes and the likes, but i don't know much about cars. still learning. :)
