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
it's just to give an idea i'm not a pro.
Only special tool needed is a spring compressor.

Took my Ion to the shop to fix low-speed clunking. Turned out to be lower
control arm bushings, but they first "misdiagnosed" it as strut issues. So
they replaced the struts. Ever since then, the front suspensions creaks
when I turn the wheel. I took it back, and they spray lubed it, but it
didn't help (of course).
