Okay, so I'm right behind a kid in an old Volvo at a stop sign at the top of an off ramp, both of us turning right, two lanes going our direction on the street we're turning on to. One car is going by, nothing else coming. When that car gets about even with the Volvo, the kid in the Volvo takes off. I look to my left and start to go. Just as I'm turning my head back to the right, WHAM, WTF! The kid had decided to stop again, driving like an old lady. He said he decided to come to a full stop. Didn't hit him hard enough to deploy the air bags, but it sure felt lik a significant thump. We got out and checked for damage. None! Not even a scratch on my front bumper. Thank God they don't make 'em like they sued to. But the seam between the front edge of the Hood
and the bumper is about 1/16th of an inch tighter on the right side than the left. Anway, he called his daddy on the cell and we had to wait for a cop to come by, investigate, and tell us how to get a copy of the accident report. No ticket written, somehow I think I got off lucky. Now I have an annoying "clunk" or "tap" from the left side somewhere when I hit rough pavement and such. I've tried to find where it's coming from without any luck. The only thing I can see is maybe the rubber bump block in the spring was displaced. Is that possibly a cause of the noise? Does it matter exactly where that thing is positioned. I might have to get the jack out of the other car and try to get the suspension up to a normal level, with the car jacked up, to try to find the noise.
Anyone out there have any exerience or ideas about this?
