Default Thunk With Hard Braking?

Anybody else had the sensation of a thunk under the driver's side during hard braking? "Thunk" might be a bit strong, more like feeling a catch underfoot when you really slam on the brakes.

I was told its that there is a missing sub frame washer. Mine does it too.There is a thread about it. A service writer at my dealer said they would fix mine at the next oil change.

Here's a quote from that thread:
Had the same thing happen to me and brought it in for inspection. It was found that the sub-frame was missing some washers / spacers thus allowing it to shift during acceleration. Parts were acquired quickly, and installed under warranty. Have not heard the noise since.

There was evidence of wear at the sub-frame mount bolts as well, and these were also replaced.

Sounds like a bad control arm "compliance bushing" to me. Very common.
