      check the upper strut tower bearing, push on the wheel well to see it anything moves on the tower. you may have to re-tighten.

      1987 535i: Ever since I did a full suspension replacement (Bilsteins), the front right area has developed a clunking sound. I've checked the cartridge, the springs, the lower and upper control arm bushings and found nothing that would cause the sound. I do know that one of the exhaust hangers is broken but I can't imagine that causing all the noise. Many thoughts?
