I am 99% sure the clunk/knocking noise from my front-end that occurs when driving over small bumps is due to the sway bar end links. I recently replaced the entire suspension, front and rear with new ebay parts, including the end links. However, a mildly annoying clunk still persists when driving over a series of small bumps in rapid succession, also when applying moderate force to the brakes and slowing to about 10 mph, then releasing the brake quickly. The clunk comes about 1-second after releasing the brake pedal and can be felt in the pedal. The replacement end links I'm looking at include Meyle HD, Lemforder, and Moog. The Moog end links come with grease fittings. The other two are sealed units. Does anyone have experience with any of these? recommendations others than those? What do you reckon I should go with so I can stop this clunk once and for all?

Thanks man. I got this quiet clunk that doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason from the back. That's probably what it is. 2001 E39. Recently changed to polyurethane bushes - that probably ended a tired link.
I have had issues With Ebay sway bar links stripping the nuts and making clunking noises, the febi links have been working good for me, also I have seen e39's have bad struts that make that clunking also
