Check large round cap on top of shock cartridge, mine did take and cap was loose. Use large channelock pliers to tighten. Remove the wheel for access, its in center of the spring.

1990 530, when i drive over a rough surface i get a clonking noise and the passenger side front wheel feels like it is about to leave the car, any ideas, i think the balljoints are ok.
