Bump, bump, bump......

Don't you just hate it when you car starts making a new noise and you just know it's not a good noise. Well I don't know what the heck is loose on the car but something sure is. Whenever I make a rather sharp and quick left turn I can feel something thumping under my car. Feels like it is right under my butt. I know something has got to be loose but what? The sharper and faster I take the turn the louder it gets but the speed of the thumping never seems to change. Any ideas?

Maybe it's B2K? Could it be the shocks?

Celica and Chevy 1500 are sold for parts. Now I'm left with the broken Buick and my '98 Dakota.

I think the shocks are ok. The car only has 72k on it and I don't think they are worn yet. Someone said to check the front sway bar, could that be it?

What is B2k?

B2K is a black boy band. They sing a song called "Bump, bump, bump".

bushings or broken front coil spring(believe me when I swapped in my Koni's and E's one of my front springs was broken and you couldn't tell by driving it all you had was that clunk).

How hard do you have to push your car to break a spring? After all they are somewhat flexable.

I think I have it fixed. Seems after looking under the front bumper that I was missing a few plastic push pins that hold the lower air dam to the front bumper. I put a couple nut and bolts to hold it in place until I can find something better to replace them with and now the bump, bump, bump is gone. I can still hear some rattling comming from the front but I didn't put a bolt in every hole that was missing a pin so I'm sure once I get them all secured down that all the noise will cease.
