I dont have that information. I bought it used. After a little experimenting though it doesnt seem like the clunk/stutter happens when I'm turning under light acceleration between first and second.

I have tried that also, but I only held it down for about 45 seconds after reading somewhere that I should hold it down for 30 but I didn't hear any click or anything. I'll try it again.

There is a large rubber bushing that can go bad and cause clunking as well as what feels like a warped rotor, especially under braking. This is a very common problem with e39 5 series cars that have a similar suspension setup.
Can this be visually inspected to see if it is bad? I wouldn't know what a good versus a bad one looked like.
