    Hi everyone. I have a strange noise I need help diagnosing. It is a fast thumping/clicking sound (once per revolution) that sounds like it's coming from my front passenger side wheel. It happens only at highway speeds, when I'm turning slightly left, OR when a gust of wind passes :confused...

    Today my car, 2000 Passat GLS w/manual transmission starts making this horrible thumping, bouncing noise/vibration feeling in the front that you can feel in the steering wheel. I take it to my best friends house and put it up on his hydraulic lift to inspect the cv axles, boots look great but...

    Today I lowered my front suspension about 1/2 inch, and after I finished, I heard a thumping noise coming from the front axle area when I brake and when I use the transmission to slow me down (manual tranny). I never took it about a speed of 20 because something was not right... I took both...

    I just installed a 28mm neuspeed sway bar on my B5 and sometimes while doing 90* turns or on an uneven surface (backing up over something that makes one wheel higher than the other) I hear a huge thump. Now I know the bar makes it hard for one wheel to go up if the other one isn't, but is it...
