clunk/bang front end noise and roaring sound when driving

Hello all. I'm new to this forum and need help. I have 2007 jeep compass fwd and I have terrible clunk/bang noise in front end also roaring sound when driving - gets louder with increased speed. I recently within last 2 months had replaced ball joins, sway bar links, inner and outer tie rods, struts, rotors and pads, control arm bushings. All parts are moog and struts are monroe. Clunking happens mostly at low speed over the bump or when rurning from stop left or right. Roaring sound is all the time starting low at about 20 mph and keeps getting louder when speed increases. Also when up shifting or down shifting steering wheel is turning on its own lightly - smooth jerk feeling/sway? All help appriciated.

Front strut tower, A-arm ball joint and sway bar links at the front are the most likely cause of a clunk or band noise. Checking for play and movement in all is the process to isolate the source not throwing parts at it.

Note the sub frame is susceptible to rust out and may be the fault as well whether it causes that sound I don't know. Jeep will address this as a separate issue and cover the repair as I understand it.

All parts you mentioned were replaced and whole front end is tight. I had alignment done after repairs. I'll have to take it to the dealer for sub frame recall but I don't think it had anything to do with my problems.

Hey hardcorecrook,

TSB 02-001-06 may relate to your vehicle’s front end noise while turning:

SUBJECT:
Swish Sound Heard From Rear Of Vehicle Over Low Speed Bumps

This bulletin involves installing a shock cap on both rear shocks.
MODELS:
2007 (MK-49) Compass
2007 (PM) Caliber
NOTE: This bulletin applies to vehicles built prior to October 6, 2006 (MDH 0606XX).

Clunk/bang noise is definitely in the front end while turning or going over bumps it sounds like something is about to break. Roaring sound is constant with speed increase and it's in the front too. Had all tires replaced as well few months back with same brand I had before. I'm lost at that. I'm suspecting bearings but there is no play in wheels or cv shaft but it's not clicking when turning and boots are solid without any breaks.

Roar - from the engine or drive train. If its wheel bearing or such you should hear feel some issue by jacking each side and check the wheels. Left/right wobble in the bearing would indicate its gone and not need to rotate it.

Sway bare links fail on these. If you replace them use MOOG links. Its a long rod going from the sway bar to the trust bracket
