    I think from reading other posts that the bushes and swivels are regular failure items on the L322. No first hand knowledge though.

    One would hope a garage would pick up on any play in the afore mentioned,I believe the Dunlop struts clunk @holidaychicken is more experienced on the 322.

    I think my ****ty Dunlop strut knock when turning as the top bearings were an early failure but there are lower arms that have the bushes fail on the inside where they bolt to the chassis and then there is a lower ball joint that is also a failure point. I changed both arms and bottom ball joint, I have a thread here somewhere. Another fail is the inner steering rack rods buy they cause play in the steering.
    Does it clunk over bumps or when turning ?

    No, I was thinking the suspension arm bushes would be likely to knock under braking!

    I find working on my range rover a little like child birth might be, at the time it is a right pain in the ****, but afterwards I tend to forget and end up doing it again...:)
