when i ease off the gas in D i hear a clunking noise (not too loud) from the drivers side (and even feel a it a bit in the pedal) over the slightest road imperfections in the road. it is not as loud as bad strut mount noises i have heard on other cars. sounds somewhat like what slightly loose lug nuts sound like except its intermittent.

could it be the ball joints?

thanks

This leads me to think it's a suspension issue. Letting off the pedal, everything leans forward.

Is there a noise on a smooth road surface?

3 bolts on each side and 40 dollars for the pair on Rockauto.com. Nice simple project to do and saving $340 isn't too shabby either.

False alarm. It was loose caliper bracket screws (from when I was changing wheel studs)
Thanks for the input. N I def hope I dont have to change the arms anytime soon.

Happy turkey day

The good news was you tracked the problem down yourself, then you were big enough to admit it was a problem you caused and gave the thread closure in the appropriate manner. Everybody won. Thanks.
