Hey Gang,

Hope this finds everybody well.

I have a mysterious clunk/creek that can be felt in the driver's floorboard and the steering wheel, seems to be coming from the left front wheel. Lower ball joints as well as the left front axle seal have just been replaced. Noise was gone for about 30 minutes. The lower steering knuckle has also been replaced and all the bushings have been heavily greased. The creek gets rather loud, and is not present when the vehicle is cold, only after it has been driven at some time. There does not seem to be any comprimised stability.

Any ideas about what else it could be?
