Karen Salvaggio, Owner/ Editor Thunder Valley Racing and Professional Race Car Driver at Thunder Valley Racing You need to get your car in for a safety check with your mechanic as soon as possible. "Clunks" can be from any number of sources, but most often the source is wheel bearings, hubs, CV joints, or brakes. All of these, if damaged or worn, can create an unsafe driving situation. If you are a do it yourself'er, then you should safely jack the car up (flat surface, using multiple jackstands and following the owner's manual recommendations) and remove the wheel to inspect/locate the source of the noise. Good luck with it!
