Question about 2004 Ford Crown Victoria
Ford TSB 04155
how do you replace the bushing/insulator on front shocks
SOURCE: Nissan Suspension noise
sounds to me like your front control arm bushings are broken. have your mechanic check the bushings in rear of the control arm. the ones that are right by the 3 bolts in the control arm in rear. those bushings brake and cause play in the whole assembly, causing a rattle. Its a black round bushing about 2 inches in diamater. its most likely all separated. common problem. Have him look at your stabilizer bar links also.

The noise you are hearing could be the serpentine (SP) belt & tensioner...
I had the same problem and had to have them changes and the noise is no longer there!!!

HI, this noise can be caused by worn shocks,even if the bushings look good, you can remove one of them and check if is hard to constracts ,if not they must be replaced,

Both the shocks and bushings can cause the squeaking noise. It is very common in those vehicles, and the best bet for figuring out which one is this: put some brake fluid in a squirt bottle, and put a small amount(don't get overzealous with it, as it will remove paint) on all the rubber bushings, and drive it around a little to get it worked into the joints. Brake fluid is designed to work as a lubricant in brakes without degrading the rubber parts, so it is excellent in lubricating the rubber suspension parts. If your squeaking remains, then it is probably the shock. This diagnosis, of course depends on if the squeak is that really obnoxious rubber squeak noise that comes when you push down on the front end and make the suspension travel. If the squeak is the high-pitched one that is constant when driving, and doesn't change except with speed, then it is your brakes telling you that they need new pads.
