I have a noise (clunk) in the rear of my Taurus Wagon (268000 mi). I have taken it to different shops and each one seems to have read the tattoo on my forehead which says $1000.00. One said it is the shocks, one said it is the anti-sway linkages, one said it is the upper control arm bushings. I have chumped off twice now had the shocks replaced AND the anti-sway inks replaced. Each of those has caused some improvement. Now I still have a CLUNK occasionally, usually when I first drive the car after it has been sitting a while. The clunk usually needs a pretty good pot hole or dip in the road to occur. If it is the control arms, can they be re-bushed, or is it just as cheap to buy the arm. They are getting difficult to find -- due to the car being 19 years old. Repair shops have told me they are over $200 each. plus the labor. Hence $1000.00 - had to add up somehow. I found some at Rock Auto for around $75.00 but I would have to install them myself. I'm 77 and not looking forward to climbing under the car for this kind of thing. Any help would be appreciated. I thought of buying them and taking them to my shop, but I figure that no matter what, they would be the wrong ones and I would need to buy the control arms from them.
