i installed my front under brace today and i no longer clunk!
i noticed that the bolt that connects the brace is also the mount for the rear of the lower control arm. well the bolt is threaded down the whole thing and the thread were actually wore off in the middle were the control arm rides. with the threads being gone it would let the control arm move about 1/16th - 1/8th inch and cause a clunk.
i went to nissan and ordered new bolts for $4.74 for both. if the clunk comes back i will replace the bolts and go from there.

btw mine only clunked on right hand turns and going over a bump at the same time at almost any speed.

they are both really simple.

for the rear you will need a 17mm socket and a 6" extention and an extra set of hands.
about 10mins to do the rear and 15 to do the front.

btw there is NOT nuts on the rear bolts.

***QUICK HOW-TO*** (no pics)

FRONT:
1. get car on ramps, jackstands or lift (i used ramps).
2. hold brace up to car to find the bolts used.
3. remove 4 bolts (12mm) and stock "brace" towards rear mounting points.
4. remove 2 large nuts and bolts (will need 18mm socket, rachet, extension, 18mm closed end wrench and a 2nd set of hands).
5. put brace on using the 4 bolt first, finger tight.
6. press large bolt back into place while a helper rolls tire backwards to realign lower control arm.
7. tighten everything back down, dont forget 4 bolts.
optional...
8. test drive.


REAR...
1. get car on ramps, jackstands or lift (i used ramps).
2. hold brace up to car to find the bolts used.
3. remove 4 bolts (12mm) and stock "brace" towards front mounting points.
4. remove 2 bolts (rear mounting points) with 17mm socket, 6" extension and rachet.
5. mount brace with 4 smaller bolts, finger tight.
6. replace 2 larger bolts.
7. tighten everything down.


both are easier to do from the side of the car (behind the front wheel and in front of the rear wheel.)
