Kitchen faucet pressure

Kitchen faucet put in 2 1/2 yrs ago and was working fine. It suddenly had reduce pressure unless I turned it on very slowly. I replaced the cartridge with a new one from the manufacturer, but I now get a clunk, clunk and low pressure (especially from hot water). If I turn it to cold water and turn it on slowly I can get full pressure. This is a Danze single handle and yes I've heard bad things about these, but this one has been great for 2 1/2yrs.

I have only seen one, and did not have to do serious service on it. Sounds like the cartridge again, of some debris in the cartridge.

Did you take the aerator off and try running the faucet?..

pressure lacking

Yes. It's a pull out and I removed the hand held from the line and it still did it. It has almost full pressure if turned on slowly, but if you turn it on at what might be considered normal speed it starts to build up pressure right at the beginning, then it clunks softly, and the pressure reduces.
