What can this b? Clunking sound when hitting bumps...

As the title states. I just installed the new H&R sports, but I had this problem back when the car was stock and also when i had the eibachs. Just i guess with the stiffer springs u hear it and feel it a bit more. It seems as if im getting a vibration through my steering wheel. The left front is where im hearing this clunking sound from. I remmeber seeing something about this a while ago. But anyway. Anyone know what it can be and how to go about it?

If your steering wheel is vibrating, I would try removing the front wheels and re-installing them. I had that problem once, and this fixed it

Did you change your brake pads recently? If so, did you apply the anti-vibration paste to the pads? If you didn't the pads will rattle at every bump. My pagids currently do, and I don't mind.

I get a similar sound when I go over the same bump every evening, but no steering wheel vibration. My e39 M5 makes an identical noise so it hasn't really bothered me.
