Default My 04 T6 after time in the shop is still noisy in the front end?

I have the standard T6 04 S80 and I just had lower control arms, struts and an alignment done. For some reason the front end still sounds bumpy when going over bumps. The car is straight as a rail when the wheel is let go and doesn't vibrate a bit while driving it either?

They went over the car to be sure it was completed and nothing was missed and I trust the guy who worked on the car. I know him.

Are these cars hard hitting on bumps due to the suspension and such? I am running New Goodyear Eagle GT's as well?

Any suggestions?

Thanks
Spankey.

Sorry I can't help you but I have to have the same done on my 2002 s80 and I am wondering how much it cost if you don't mind. Also was it a dealer or indepent garage ? Thank you

A gargae it ran me $1300. Turns out my right tire was 10lbs under inflated. I just had new tires put on the car Good Year Eagle GT's and they must have left one low. I usually check them but thought I could trust them. Turns out all other tires, LF, both rear had 40psi and the right front had 30.

The noise seems to have diminished as weird as that may sound.

There are a lot of posts on the forum about front end noises. They were a huge help when I had issues with my '02 T6.
