I removed sway bar and greased the bushing's but after about 1500 miles, clunking sound returned. I contacted Hellwig and was told sway bar was probably moving side to side. They seem to have a fix as they sent me 2 round pieces to install on the inside of sway bar where it attaches to axle. I've attached pictures and will report back when I've had a chance to drive Solera. Sorry, pictures are sideways. Yellow on shock should be at bottom.
I just pulled my Hellwig sway bar, re-greased and reinstalled it. I have not had a chance to drive our Solera yet to see if that fixed the dreaded clunk noise problem. I'm a bit disappointed to hear that your re-greasing fixed the problem only for a while. Did you contact Hellwig directly? How cooperative are they with getting the "fix" parts out to you? Let all of us fellow clunk sufferers know if it fixed it. Thanks
