This situation is very likely because, for a long time, there is rust between the screw and the nut, and you forcibly remove the screw with a wrench when you remove the screw, resulting in screw damage. You can use induction heaters to heat the nuts from the current situation. There are two functions; one is after heating, due to the principle of thermal expansion and contraction, there will be a gap between the nut and the screw; the other is that after the nut is heated, you can re-shape the nut, then you can use the wrench to take the nut off. Induction heater, you can try this solary h7e(used to rust for many years to remove the screws smoothly.Lug nut saga: Chapter 3
So, I got the kit of lug nut removers. Hammered the 17 cm one on. Smacked my thumb for good measure with the hammer once. That’s how you know it’s good and on.

All I was able to do was round it off even more. This is after zapping it with Aerokroil every few days for the last week and a half.
Interesting. It is really a not cool noise, and I hope it doesn’t last 2 months! Raised bumps in the road seem to cause the clunk noise, but potholes don’t seem to.I had that clunk for a month or two after I got my lift. I lived in a place with speed bumps and I heard it every time. Then it just went away and never came back.
