2001 GMC Jimmy


I have had the transmission rebuilt (bad year for that I hear) and the front lower ball joints replaced. Now there is a noise in the rearend. Sounds like it's howling. Only when i am moving. There was some grease leaking back there. Any clue to the problem? Rear bearing? Is it safe to drive 70 miles an hour/

How to repair/replace upper and lower ball joints in the front passenger side


first make sure you have the right tools on hand. the upper will be riveted on, so a grinder and air hammer will be helpful, you willl need a ball joint separator, and a ball joint press for the lower, a few good solid stands. on a 4wheel drive it is easier to remove the knuckle, better get a manual

How do i stop the squeaky front suspenion


The most common source of front suspension squeek for your vehicle a ball joint that has not been lubricated with each oil change. I would liberaly lubricate the upper and lower ball joints and re-evaluate your noise issue. While this may temporarily resolve the noise concern, the lower ball joints will most likely require replacement.
Good luck.

How to replace uper lower control arm bushings in a 2001 gmc jimmy


The control arm must be removed from the vehicle. Then the control arm bushings are pressed in and out with a ball joint press.
Another option is to take the control arm in and have the bushings pressed for you.

 Sorry not sure what kinda noise your hearing but here are a few things that would cause that.
1 Check for worn ball joints. 2 Check for tire pressure. 3 Check for wheel bearing failure. 4 Check for worn brake pads and rotors. 5 Easies on is to check to see if the brake dust is rubbling.
Good luck and hope this helps

Front end clunk


If it's a constant clunking noise it might be the cv joints, a one time clunk would indicate play between the steering rack and and the wheel somewhere, probably on the lower control arm, meaning the bushes are either very worn, or not present anymore. It could be the bushes on the swing-arm aswell. Best bet: Jack the car up on the right side and grab the wheel, **** it around abit, and check for play.Hope that helps!

Replacing lower ball joint-GMC JImmy


is this a 4 wd drive unit or 2wd unit? are you mechanically inclined and have basic common tools including a jack and jackstands? if you live close to pep-boys auto center then you can take it there you will spend about 200-300 to do the job, just ask them for a qoute first and that hopefully is still free. they have a special coupon on there wbsite right now that will save you some money, plus if you are over 55 or student in school you can also save money there. i was a service manager there for a while... let me know what you want to do they are not super hard to do but can give you a headache if you dont have a grinder or chisel. i can walk you through it though if you still wish, im all for the do it yourselfer.
