i bought my 04 pilot ex about 2 years ago and every since i bought it i has had a loud rapid thudding noise coming from the from end when going over bumps. It is more noticeable when going slower speeds but can definitly be heard while driving 70 but not as much because the roads are smoother!! help please>>

Have you looked underneath or in the wheel well with the tires turned outward? The issue could range from the sway bar endlinks or sway bar bushings or worn front struts or the entire combo due to the age or mileage of the Pilot. If you are unable or don’t have the skill set to properly inspect either get someone knowledgeable and trustworthy to do so or take some good pics for internet diagnosis.

Have you checked all the front end components?
Have you checked the subframe mounts?

2 years of this?

Struts are usually the first to go bad, but a high milage 04 likely needs to have anything with rubber replaced, if nothing has ever been done. Ball joints, bushings, tie rod ends etc etc.

If not,...

Front sway bar bushing, front sway bar bushings, front sway bar bushings.

Bets are open, gents.
