Very good advice. Been there and done that on my Subaru Outback. I was sure I torqued everything to spec when I replaced my LCA's but in the subsequent week of driving, I was getting this clunk when I drove into a driveway or over a speed bump. Got under the car with a torque wrench and found a lot more torque was needed on those fasteners. When that was done, the clunks went away.
