When I replaced the stabilizer links a few weeks ago it solved my clunking problem, and everything was fine... nice and quiet. Then yesterday, out of nowhere, on a pretty smooth road, the same noise came back worse than ever. The links look ok, i was thinking maybe one of the link ball/socket joints failed already, but 2 weeks is a pretty short life. any ideas? the bushings on top of the strut seem ok, not torn.

i'm going crazy with the clunk
'95 540i Sport

Have you tried tighten the steering box mounting bolts? especially the long 12mmm one.
