2008 Nissan Sentra 4dr Sedan

140-horsepower 2.0L I4 CVT FWD

11000 mi A clunk and bump feedback through steering wheel. I have run into this problem with several 08 sentras. Happens when the steering wheel is turned sharply and you accelerate. There is a dull "clunk" noise. Raising the intermediate shaft fixed the noise. 
36000 mi rear wheel bearings went out. 
34000 mi Rear suspension assembly was severely misaligned. The rear suspension is not independent, and hence cannot be adjusted. Replace the entire rear axle assembly.
