:4-wavey: ok, SO I drive a 2006 Dodge charger SE 2.7 Liter Engine.. (i know, its not a big Engine) but I recently changed my front struts because they were blown out! I have 83,000 miles on it. (I live in Wisconsin, Most of it is HWY Mileage) ok, so I replaced them about 2 months ago, and at first I noticed the difference. then a week ago. I had to replace my driver Side sway bar. the upper part was completely off. I ordered some on ebay, and had them installed. now i notice that I hear Thud's :3-smash: when im driving on a bumpy road. I dont drive fast on bumps. i try to avoid them. I only replaced the stuts the first time. no bushings no nothing... then I replaces the sway bar link's on both sides. If you know how I can fix this issue, please let me know, and if possible please point me to the right direction to the products. Im only 22, but will be 23 in September 13th. im not mechanically inclined, but I do know the Basics :box2:.

Is there something else i need to replace? anything will help! Thanks Guys!

You might not have the sway bar endlinks tight enough or properly torqued.. They will make a thunk if they are not properly tightened.. that would be where i would start..

Yeah that would be the first thing to check.

sounds about right, i would take it back and see if they torqued everything correctly. there might be other underlying problems considering the mileage?:4-dontknow:

UPDATE!!!

Ok Guys!!! I took the Beast (My Charger) to the Shop and they Tighten the sway bar endlinks. They also replaced the Bushings for the Sway Bar. I talked to the owner (which he himself has a Charger, and I told him about this site and he will join soon! :) ) he installed the Bushings and tighten the Sway Bar links for free! :) I am so Glad to have my Beast running smooth again. God Bless you all! Here is a picture of the Beast up in the air!!!



Now im looking to Start on some few mods. This is what I have so far..

Glad the Z could be of help, great job Eric pointing him in the right direction. That's cool you got the shop owner to check out the Z as well!
