Exclamation 95 530i clunking nosie

ok searched hi and low for this

i have a clunking noise while driving (align,brake, wheels, all good)

i lifted the front up via ramps and just checked everything out
i can push on sway bar and i hear the same noise (pass side)
i push driver nothing,, ok i know that the pass side link is bad however while i'm going straight the clunking starts at 10 and sometimes tapper off at 45 (sound increases as vehicle increases in speed) while turning or braking no noise even a slight swerve in my own lane noise goes away....

sway bar link or..........
:
thanks ahead of time

sway bar links would make a clicking noise when going over bumps if they are bad; never heard of them showing signs while just driving.

did you check all the bushings?

when your sway bar bushings wear out they will become more audible, worth looking into, sounds like it to me.
