I had a similer experience with my e430. When it went to the dealer he said one of the front coils had broken. He fixed a new one (plus a new one on the other side so they are both the same strength) and the problem disappeared. Cost a lot, but it may be the answer.

When driving and hitting small bumps or imperfections in the road, my 99 Buick Park Ave fish tails and feels somewhat unsafe at times. What could be the cause?


Sounds like it could be:
bad bushings in the suspension
bad shocks
broken sway bars

In any case, it's really time to take it to a mechanic who can look under it and see what is wrong with it.

Constant rattle on front wheel


Possible bad wheel bearing. Jack up the vehicle and have someone rock the car while you watch and feel for loose parts in the suspension. This is using safety stands too. Best way is using ramps and having the car rocked while weight is on the tires.

Also remember that when checking wheel bearing, the brake pads may prevent some motion so wheel bearing seems tight.

I have replaced my back shocks on 2004 maxima now something is rattling in the rear end can't figure it out wasn't doing it until I repaced those shocks.


Hi Yameekia, Chock the front wheels, loosen the wheels, jack up the rear end and place chassis stands under the vehicle and then remove wheels. You will see a torsion bar connecting the left and right suspensions. The bar is sometimes referred to as an anti roll bar or a stabilizer bar. It is attached to the body with saddle clamps with rubber bushings, replace both bushes. At either end you will see that the anti roll bar is attached to the suspension by flexible linkages. These are small rods with small ball joints at each end. When worn these same ball joints make a lot of noise, hammering out a drum roll with each bump in the road. Replace those and I believe your problems will be over. You mentioned replacing the rear shocks....what about the front? Did you know that the shocks are not there to give a comfortable ride but instead to hold the tyres in contact with the road surface. They are a safety requirement for road holding, so with that in mind, have a good look at those too! Regards John

I have a 2004 Mitsubishi endeavor that has a thumping in the frond end when i go over bumps or potholes. thought it might be a bad strut but had them checked and that is not the problem


Hi, the noise that you here could be the anti roll bar links ( they connect the anti roll bar to suspension ) or the bushes which mount the anti roll bar to the chassis.
If the sound is more metalic it could be a ball joint.
Or could be one of the other bushes on the suspension.
I hope i have been of some help to you
