Issue with front LCA

I'm hearing a clunk sound at low speeds and when turning..I've taken some pictures at different angles showing the LCA, to my untrained eye it doesn't look good at all.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

looks to me like the tabs are bent but that shouldent be causing a clicking sound.

I wonder if the bushings are seized allowing the whole assembly to move around, and bend the tab? It's pretty common that they seize as there is no anti seize added at the factory. Ask me how I know...

We spoke about this yesterday in the live thread. No one can tell whats wrong off that pic thus no one will assure you it's safe. Your ball joint could be ready to pop and flop your wheel off. Not trying to scare you, but you need to take the tire off and investigate or have a "qualified" mechanic look it over.

Did you check to see if your mount was in fact bent or if it was the picture angle?

The bushings themselves look fine.

here's a shot of new ones for comparison'
