Mein Auto: 2005 545i Sport SMG
Question Help: 05 545i Front Suspension Noise

My front suspension is making a clucking noise when it about to go under pressure or release. One garage said that I needed the Thrust Rod Bushing replaced and that there was a leak in the Active Sway Bar. I had the Thrust Rod Bushing replaced ($441 total) which helped lesson the noise (from what I can tell) and definitely firmed up the ride, but it hasn't resolved the problem.

Any ideas? Should I have the sway bar replaced, or is there a smaller/cheaper more likely cause for the noise?
