Hello all, Something unusual happened this weekend. My car 34,000 mile 2016 MT had started making noises like a bearing or CV joint going bad. I also, noted the clunking suspension noise mentioned by others. I jacked the car to removed the wheels and inspect. Removed the driver's side wheel and found a clump of grass wedged in the axle in the drivers side, shaft rotated nice and easy, no problem. Sprayed some silicon on the A-Arm bushing. Started removing the lugnuts on the passenger car side, and one of the lug nuts was stuck, the stud rotated a limited amount in either direction. I supposed the stud splines got stripped? Probably from over-torquing? I guess my option is to cut the lug nut so that I can remove the wheel and the hub and press a new stud in the hub. Any ideas? I wonder if an impact wrench would loosen it? Anybody heard of this happening?
