Re: bushwacker flares

The flares I have are very simple they just sit up against the wheel openings and you can put screws through them, my 89 had factory chrome trim around it so i just used the pre drilled holes that were there already, clunking could be a ball joint, could be a cv joint or in my case I had this problem once and the bolt were you can adjust the upper A-arm was really lose, make sure the front end is tight and check every thing closely, you'll find your clunk.

Re: bushwacker flares

yeah those type of flares are pretty simple i have a set of gm black plastic ones on there but i wanted the cut out flares the ones that you have to cut out the wheel well and for the popping noise i changed the ball joints and it still does it and i also changed the cv joints ont that side but it does need a front end alignment really bad its so bad you can see the tire actully tilted out so i might do that alignment and see if changes

Don't forget to look at your bushings up front, they get dry rotted and start to have play in them

also don't forget to check the torsion bar mounts. I chased that popping noise before too. And it was no fun finding out that all I needed was 2 $24 mounts after buying all new ball joints and cv joints.
To check them simply push up on the crossmember that holds the torsion bars if it moves then they need to be replaced.
