Do you mean you can't extract it or it won't play?

So I recorded it best I can, hope this is useful to see if there's a commonality and we can get together potentially for a joint approach to GM on this issue. My dealer has tried their best, but I'm starting to think it's a parts issue.

See attachment for the sound - is it what you hear?

I appreciate the offer Ashley, but do you mind telling me what that will do for me? The dealer has tried to fix this many times and they say if I contact Chevy they will simply only direct me right back to them. If there isn't already a bulletin on the exact cause, it seems like nothing can be done. No dealership of any brand seems to want to really diagnose an issue such as this. However, I'm not concerned about potential parts failure and I imagine others with this annoying noise are wondering about that too.

Well almost three years later and I have the front end noise. It has always had the clunk while say backing out of the driveway with the wheels turned over a bump. That I can live with but as of yesterday I hear what everyone has been upset about. Low speeds over slightly rough or refinished black top and she shows her ugly face. Sounds like the whole front end is going to fall out. My suspension is original and my only mods are exhaust and a CAI. Originally I thought just maybe my exhaust was hitting the brace again which I just put some washers in there to provide more clearance. I removed it and tested so it is the coming from the front suspension on an otherwise stock 2010 SS with 43,000 miles on it.

Has there been any recent resolve?

Like I said previously my 2010 coupe had it, at times the whole front end would vibrate and you could feel it in the steering wheel. I now have almost 8,000 miles on my 2012 convertible with no issues with any clunking. It may have to do with the strut tower brace, or other changes made to the convertible to stiffen the chassis. So far I am very satisfied.

The STB has nothing to do with the clunk. Nothing. I'll post detail later.

I have the exact same problem. It sounds like something's coming apart every time I drive over a small bump.

Is your suspension stock?
How many miles are on your Camaro?
