Getting a clunk occasionally when coming to a stop on front drivers side. Originally thought it was the strut mount, but replacing it didn't fix the problem. I think it might be a lower control arm bushing as there have been problems with these in the past.
No clunking on bumps, potholes, only when coming to a stop.
Any ideas?
Everything was put back together torqued to Ford specs's so I don't think it is a loose bolt on the strut or something like that.

Diagnostic credo number one in my auto shop class: look first at the last thing you touched.

Ca problems tend to be squeaks in this car.

Clunk

Agree with your Credo, didn't get a chance to look at everything last night.
Thing is it only does it when coming to a stop, there's no popping or noise when I hit a bump.
I'll figure it out!
Spent three months on another vehicle looking for a knocking when breaking.
Replaced everything in brakes on that side, long story short LCA bushing failed and was contacting mounting point on downhill breaking. I told a master mechanic at local GM dealer about it. Next time I saw him he said he had three instances of it.
Other mechanics thought he was a genius cause nobody thought to look there.
