SOURCE: How Much For A New Suspension???

Dear Kathrynn
If the suspension is shot you should perhaps be walking away from this bargain. Or if you are really keen at least consider getting it looked over by a professional - after all it is only five years old.

SOURCE: need to know how to reset the abs warning light, repairs have been made

The ABS light will stay on only when a problem exists. Once repairs have been completed and no problems exist the ABS light will go off on it's own. Take the car back to where you had the work done and have them fix it. It shouldn't cost you anything. If the ABS light was not "on" when you took the car to them, DO NOT let them charge you to fix it. They caused the problem. They can fix it. Good luck. Hope this is helpful.

No diagram available that I'm aware of...IF you insist on tackling it yourself...Buy a Chilton's manual at Auto Zone (order it) ($25).
Good Luck

SOURCE: front suspension knocking noise

Your car being 15 years old, your better of replacing the Sway bar end link. You can pick them up at Auto Zone, Napa, and Parts Source, the urethane bushing kits go for around $35.00 for both sides. The urethane bushing kits last at life time and when removing the old end link, try tightening the nut till they snap the bolt which is easier then to remove the nut from the bolt. It takes about 30 min to replace both sides and make sure you measure both end link at the end of the job to make sure they are equal in length. Good luck and don't forget the lock tight.

The front suspension needs a lot of work. There is a lot of noises coming from the front end. My understanding is that this is common for a cobalt.

brakes and rotors will not cause noise unless they are badly worn and this will be evident on inspection
most noise will be from rubber suspension bushes and sway bar and shocky rubbers
I would suggest that you get quotes from suspension accredited shops and have each shop show you what is worn and what is ok
ON good roads ( hard surface) suspension units should last 60.000 miles before requiring repairs ( barring road damage)

Vauxhall corsa faults

there will be no movement in the mounts unless the suspension rubber/ bushes are worn out . There will be no figures as it amounts to the fact that if you can move them then they will need replacing. take it to an accredited suspension shop and have a safety check done and have them show you what is worn and needs replacement and calculate how much you will save by doing it yourself against what they will charge for a good -safe-guaranteed job.

Need economical solution for front suspension to bring back to glory

If you have suspension issues there is no way to have a easy way but to replace all the damaged parts. Check for damaged shock absorbers, bushes, balance rods,hubs, bearings, struts and even the tyres.A good alignment needs to be done finally after replacement of the damaged/worn out spares.

Excessive play in the steering wheel, car is all over the road. What could this be?

The steering gear box is worn out. And, there's probably worn front suspension components adding to the problem. You will need to check the following parts for looseness or movement: Idler Arm, Upper and Lower Ball Joints, Control Arm Bushings, Pitman Arm, Inner and Outer Tie Rod Ends, Front Hub Bearings. All of these can be replaced in your driveway with the exception of the Control Arm Bushings which are pressed in and require special tools to remove and install the bushings. If you can't replace all of them, concentrate your efforts on the following: Steering Box, Idler arm, and Control Arm Bushings. If you can afford to have all of them done, the front suspension would be factory fresh and should, with proper wheel alignment, drive like a new car.

On an 89 Ford Ranger the truck is whipping back and forth while driving down the road. The ball joints seem fine.

You have a 21 year old vehicle. Put it on a lift and inspect all the suspension and steering components. You more than likely have worn suspension bushings. Any play in any bushings is too much. You also may have worn tie rods, etc. An inspection on a lift will tell you what needs to be done.

How do I fix a creaking suspension on my 98 Voyager

Replace the front strut mounts and check for worn suspension bushings. Good luck and keep me posted, you can try spraying dry silicon lubricant from a can to the strut mounts and suspension bushings. Do not use oil or grease, oil base lubricant will eat away the rubber bushings. Good luck and keep me posted.

I think you will find its either your lower wish bone bushes need replacing OR its could be brake pads moving in housing as when going forward its the same way as disc goes but in reverse they slide backwards about 5mm if housing is worn ..
