1 Answer

Clonking Noise have just had my 1999 CR-V serviced & MOT'd and it was brought to my attention that i needed to replace an anti-roll bar link at a cost of £60.00 fitted.I collected my car with new MOT and paid the bill,this was 31/12/08.i noticed a couple of days later that when i drove over any uneaven ground a quite loud sort of clonking noise was heard,i returned the car to the same garage for investigation only ot be informed that the other anti-roll bar link now needed replacing at another cost of £60.00! What do you think,could this problem happened because they only replaced one side?

If you take into account that both links are of the same age. It is not uncommon for the other side to fail. Personally, I install links in pairs to prevent such a problem. Most components that have a right and left side usually wear out or break around same time, because they have the same # of km's on them. Brakes pads and shoes are sold in pairs for this reason. I don't know why more auto parts are not sold in pairs for this reason. I don't feel the garage did anything wrong, other than trying to save you some money by only doing the side that was broken.

Hope this helped you out.

How to replace front anti roll bar bushes

Frank, you haven't said what make or model your car is.
However, have a look on the following link - it will take you to Youtube:
how to replace anti roll bar bushes Google Search

It's not a particularly difficult job. It entails loosening the drop-links/tie bars that connect to the torsion bar - the anti roll bar, then loosening the bolts holding the anti roll bar in place.

Just be aware that the anti roll bar is in effect a 'spring' and is under tension. Loosen the retaining bolts gradually, slowly.

replacing the bushes is straight forward. Once you have removed the anti roll bar just lever the old rubber bushes out with a screwdriver and push the new ones into place .. then reassemble everything.

In the most general of terms you would do the job in a couple of hours

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
