Front End Bushing
It made me wonder as well. I took it for a state inspection before the tires, and my garage guy said nothing was wrong with the front end. I told him it was very clunky, which he kind of put down to the fact I live on a dirt road, which gets pretty bad in the winter.
For the tires, I went to a "tire chain store" or "tire big box store". They seemed fishy right off the bat. I noticed they took everyone out back to their cars to show them something that concerned them....
One guy left with a bill of $1200.....and there were a lot of extras they dinged him for. Now maybe they were all legit, and maybe not.
With my car, he showed me how if he attempted to loosen a lug nut, the tire would slide back and forth an inch or so. The other side did not do this. Not being a mechanic or very automotive-savvy, I took what they said and told them I would think about it.
That's all I got!
Pardon any typos, my IPad has a mind of it's own for spelling corrections!
