Hi
New to the forum but had cruisers for over ten years.My latest has developed a "clunk" on any suspension movement,up and down or L or R hand bends.It is a real knock I think from the front end but nothing appears out of sorts visually.Any ideas?

First thing to check is bushes and top shock mounts, you will have to jack the body/ chassis up so the suspension is at full extension, then see if you can find any movement, also if its a 100 series check the front torsion bar etc, also lower arm bushes and joints, use a pry bar to try and find any movment, a surpriseingly small amount of movment can make a very loud clunk.
