I just got my control arm bushings replaced, and just recently started hearing a thumping sound coming from the front of my car. At first I though I ran over something, but it's happened more often than it should.

Could it be underinflated tires? I noticed they're getting a little low.

Anything else?

Thanks guys.

Have you replaced your sway bar end links?

What kind of car is it? If is in an Xi, it sounds like it may be a bad CV joint. If it is a lawnmower, like your info suggests, you may have run over the garden hose or a cat.

Lol.

It's a 330i.

I actually noticed that it's under any sharp turn. A single thump will come from the car (I can feel it too) under any sharp turn. Seems like it's coming from under the car somewhere, or maybe the front.

And no, I haven't replaced my sway bar end links. Car has about 80k miles.
