control arm bushings replaced about 6 months ago along with control arms so with the stuff i did today the front end is pretty much new again. Valve cover is definitely leaking that is the next thing to do. Will go with factory, thanks. This thumping sound is driving me crazy.....It sounds like something is stuck in tire but its down by my feet. The faster i go the faster the sound goes and the slower, you get the point.
