I'm getting a clunking sort of noise from my right front suspension. I was wondering if there were any common problems with the bushings or bearings going bad. Can i inspect anything for wear? Btw, my car is a 99 540i/6 lowered on full coilovers with 19x9's in the front.

Best way to diagnose is to get the car up on a lift and use a pry/crow bar and start moving things around. That will show if something if loose or if something is moving that should not be moving - Good Luck!
