    clunking noise when backing into a parking space

    Anyone else have this happen? When I pull up to a parking spot to back in, as I turn the steering wheel the other way and back up there is a clunking sound. I had a mechanic thoroughly search for worn bushings and he could not find anything out of the ordinary. It won't do it on something that allows the tires to slide, such as on gravel and grass. It has to be on solid pavement to create the resistance necessary to make it clunk.

    Have you resolved the issue. Sounds like a broken coil spring . My experience is the bottom 3 or so inches snap off, this could be giving you the clunking noise.

    hope this is of some help
