Front shocks replacement (Mac Pherson).
To give an idea of the job if you want to do it yourself or if a pro do it for you. it's just to give an idea i'm not a pro. Only special tool needed is a spring compressor.

WHATS THE CLUNCKING IN THE STEERING 05 MALIBU ELECTRIC STEERING
I've noticed that most of the new GM Malibu's, G 6's and saturn Ions that use electric steering have a noticeable clunk when the vehicle is not moving and you turn the steering wheel from side to side just a few inches. This video shows just one possible cause for the clunking noise.
