Everytime i go over a speedbump at a slow speed i hear a thumping sound, any ideas? Control Arm? Shock?
Car has 5k miles on it, 3 months old

Some questions:

(1) Is it really just on one front wheel and not the other?
If so, definitely something wrong.

(2) Did it just start recently, as opposed to having been there from the beginning/
If so, definitely something wrong.

(3) We all get a "thump" when going over speedbumps (or even any kind of significant bump, like expansion joints)..... but, depending on what you mean by "slow speed" -- like if you mean just a few MPH, it shouldn't be happening. Otherwise it might be just how the car is. Also depending on what exactly you mean by "thump" -- maybe you mean something besides the normal one.

does your steering wheel shake when you go 60+ ? Do you hear any noise when hitting a pot hole? Might be a bushing..

By slow speed i mean the car is just rolling about 5mph, i had this since the beginning, i was just wondering if anyone had a similar experience. Otherwise the car is fine on the road, doesnt shake, doesnt vibrate, no strange noises. From my overobsessive experience with cars and their noises i am betting its either the control arm or the bushing.

I'll try to remember to check it out on my car.

We'll probably have to get back to what you mean by "thump." :D

I think it might be the driver side wheel, i am sorry i cant explein the thump, but you'll hear it if it happens.
