Update for you guys....

Car is currently at 138,300 km and the right front strut has left us. Cold mornings it is knocking and making a ton of noise (This morning was -28 with the windchill) to the point where it's unbearable.
I manage an auto shop and had it on the hoist about a month ago and check everything else out to find the seal is gone from the strut. So I am currently looking at my options, I will mostly likely just order GM struts and mounts and put the B&G lowering spring back in.

OR... Do what I should've done in the first place and put the KSport or Bilstein coil over kit in.

Did you have the TSB performed on your car for the front shocks at any point? If you did have them replaced due to clunking noise early on, you'll have the new design.
Wait, I have been trying to trace a clunk on my passenger side when I go over bumps... everything seems tight, can it be affected by this TSB?

I thought I fixed it but it's back on my car too, and I'm on Bilsteins. I don't think it's the shocks.

My mom was borrowing my car while hers was in the shop and without me saying anything, she said she heard some sort of pop in the front end as well. I jacked mine up today and put it on jack stands, grabbed and shook everything around, found nothing out of the ordinary except maybe the axle, unsure if it should have this much play? Maybe its because the tires are in the air? Unsure. Forgot to grab the parking brake cable and check for play like someone else suggested.
