CHECK YOUR BALL JOINT BOLT!!

Went and changed drivers side control arm because I had a random clunk over bumps (2017). However, I went to remove the ball joint bolt and it was hardly tight at all which makes me think that the noise was actually carrying from the ball joint and resonating to the rear of the control arm. My stock removed control arm actually looked pretty good, bushings were still pretty stiff and seem to be intact. Stock control arms since new, never touched.

I will be driving tomorrow to make sure the noise is gone.

But if you get a chance, make sure your ball joint bolt is tight. Just tightened mine to stiff until I can get a torque spec from ford
