It was the balljoint making the noise over bumps. It's was intermittent too which is weird. Just replaced it and all is well.

It took a year and a half to figure that out?

The noise went away for a long time and the car had sat at home while I was away at college

So I was getting another clunk on this same car, drivers side again. Been ignoring it for way too long and just now got the chance to take a look. Inner tie rod is shot.

I had just replaced this steering rack, which came with new inner tie rods, 2 years ago.

I am concerned because come to think of it, this car has been in an accident on the drivers side. The fender is all caved in and it has a 'new' Volvo control arm installed. So I'm wondering if something could be tweaked causing premature failure of parts? On this side alone I have had to replace outer tie rod, ball joint, and now inner tie rod. Hopefully it's just all coincidental.

Steering and suspension stuff lasts 2-3 years now.
