My SRAM XI cranks recently started making a clunking sound under hard pedaling, but only on the right side. So, If I pedal normal cruising speed, I may or not get a sound, but if I am pedaling hard (any gear) I will get a loud clunking sound, but only when pedaling hard on the right side, if that makes sense

I check for BB and crank installation problems. Chain ring bolts tight, crank arm bolt torqued, pedals tight, no wobble when pulling/pushing inward/outward on the crank arms. Check the rear triangle and suspension pivots. If that all checks out, I'd pull the crank and inspect the BB.

I checked all that stuff, I even changed out the chainring (something I wanted to do anyway) No luck.... So I went ahead and ordered a new BB. Went with a different brand. I post here after it's swapped to see if it made the difference
