I assume that this is a sl2 or a sc2 both have a rear sway bar and possibly have binding sway bar links. remove rear wheel and find link that goes from rear sway bar to strut and make sure it is able to pivot. if they are binding they make a lot of noise and need to be replaced

2004 envoy noise from front end while driving


How did you check it? Look at it? I think it's a sealed bearing. While driving, slowly sway the car left to right and back again. Does the noise become more prominent in either direction? When you put mor weight on a bad bearing they make more noise. Turning left puts more weight on the right side and vice versa.

My 1995 Jeep Cherokee is making a clunking sound all the time. It sounds like it is in the back passenger side. What could it be?


have the u joints inspected as sometimes a noise is not coming from the area you might think it is.the noise could be a bad shock on that side or a rear spring bushing or spring problem.have it checked out,its a 95 so chances are you have not changed the shock and its worn out making noise.if it is change both shocks.

Noise from front suspension area


worned out shocks will cause it to make the noise. front shocks tend to wear quicker than the rear due to the weight of the engine. have 2 front shocks inspected by any tires shop, should not cost you anything.

Trouble With Air Ride Thats What the Gage Inside Said, I have a ford explorer eddy bauer 1998 i turn the truck off and i hear like a strange sound from the back like a shock absorber is going down and i...


Can you hear the pump kick in when you put weight in the back and the car is running? The way it works is there is a level sensor that mounts between the body of the car and the rear axle. When weight is added in the rear the compressor will add air until the vehicle is level. When weight is taken out of the car which could be the rear passengers getting out of the car the vehicle is now higher and the pump will release air to lower the shocks back to a level height. This is why youare hearing that sound. The pump will let air out of the system even when the engine is off to maintain a level ride. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.

Thanks - Tech101
