Default NEED ADVICE/COMMENTS

Hi i own a 2006 PT Cruiser, and i took it in for service two days ago and they told me i had to replace the lower arm bushings.

So since it was under warranty they did it... today i noticed a very loud clunking sound coming from the right front passenger side.

I have just gotten new snow tires put on...so im a little worried...anyone have any ideas... if its the tires or the lower arm bushings they just replaced...


Thanks in advance

Sounds like the right side of the front sway bar could be loose. I have heard of the dealer forgetting to tighten up the bracket.

Go right back to dealer - they goofed.
