Lots of shaking from side to side.


Could be a bad tire ( or bent rim Have balance checked), ball joint, idler arm, wheel bearing, steering tie rod end or defective rack and pinion unit. Lift vehicle about 1 inch off ground ( do each side independently) Use a pry bar and pry from ground up and down on wheel. Much play? bad ball joint. With both hands, try to move wheel side to side. Much play? could be a tie rod end or bad wheel bearing. Visually check play of steering arm into rack and pinion unit, more than about a half inch play, bad rack and pinion unit. Try to move back and forth with hands top and bottom. Much play? Bad ball joint or wheel bearing, verify visually that it is ball joint moving, else it is the wheel bearing. Manually check for play in each joint in steering control rods from steering knuckle all the way through each rod where there is a joint. Replace the one you find excessive play in. Check mounting studs for sway bar for loose fit, deteriorated rubber bushings or a crack / break in the sway bar. Replace if needed. That's about all I can think of unless it only happens when applying brakes, in which case it could be a warped rotor.

Car makes a rattle noise on the littlest bump should I be concerned


Probably not, but we can't say until it is identified.
A very common cause of this in Camrys is that the rear suspension anti-sway bar retainer bushings become worn. See p 95
http://www.turboninjas.com/camry/sa.pdf

If you think the noise is more to the front then maybe a ball joint is worn, possibly the rack end ball joint or tie rod end.
Jack the front wheel up on each side in turn, grab the wheel at each side and shake it back and forth as hard as you can. If you hear or feel looseness, the problem is in the steering, as above.
Then shake the wheel while holding it at top and bottom. If you feel looseness then, the problem is in the front suspension joints somewhere.
Repeat this on the other front wheel. Let it down on the ground, then bounce each front corner up and down as hard as you can (you might have to have a second person with you doing this). If you hear a clunk or feel excessive bounciness, it is the shock absorber strut making noises. When bouncing like this, the car should resist, and not keep bouncing when you let go.

Symptoms: rattling noise coming from front end of 98 explorer, pulls at the least little bumps, eats up front tires like crazy. Doesn't feel safe driving. What I've been told already: upper and lower...


definitely sounds like a ball joint problem, bushings would not cause it to chew up tires a worn moving mechanical part would such as steering components,wheel bearings,ball joints, and believe it or not shock absorbers

When I hit a bump the front end shakes and makes a clunking noise


Could be alot of things like worn out bushings, ball joints, tie rod ends, radius arm bushings(which is common) you should have this checked out before it gets worse and cost alot more to fix what could be an easy, inexpensive job.

01 dodge ram shakes violent after bump


Yes, that rod isn't bad to do, You'll need a ball-joint removal fork for the ball-joint. But after that removing the bolt, releasing the other end is a piece of cake. You will want a friend around for installing the new one. he or she will turn the steering wheel so you can insert the new ball-joint into the frame.

How do i find a diagram showing my front end sway bar bushings?


The sway bar bushings are under the large clamps that hold the bar to the frame. The ends of the sway bar are connected to the struts by the sway bar links. When the links wear out, they clunk--not squeak. The bushings are under the retainer in the pic below.
