Testimonial: "I figure wheel alignment do u think thT will change the bounce and road bums . I hit a bump feels like I am in a 80'smodel corvette "

    Bouncing is bad shocks.check your tire sizes for the bumps and if all are same size check air in tires. Sounds like way to much air making tires hard. My 84 biarritz ride is soft and no hard bumps. sounds like 2 problems bad shocks and way too much air in tires. good luck

There could be a problem with the rack and pinion mechanism.

First, check the fluid level in the power steering pump.

If the level is ok, service to the rack and pinion will be necessary.

#1 The squeeking is likely due to worn struts. Replace the struts. You will also get a better response over bumps. #3 Rotors are warped. If inferior quality parts were used, it will occur again. Turn all the rotors again. On the car will work better. #2 This is likely the automatic climate control module (head unit, the face you see inside the car, in the centre console). Let me know if you need anything else.

This is a very typical issue on lifted vehicles being driven on the street. It is important to know that when a vehicle is lifted, the steering and suspension geometry change and characteristics will change as well.
My first concern would be with front wheel alignment. If front caster angles are too severe, the will fight each other over rough surfaces and cause the truck to wander or feel like a shake.
Also, front toe angles are crucial for proper tire wear and stability.
Have the front end aligned and checked. If there are no alignment issues, focus on the shocks and that steering stabilizer. Was the problem there before you installed the stabilizer? If not, check it for proper oil/ gas charge.
Weak or worn shocks will cause the tires to bounce and leave the road over bumps. Since the truck and been lifted, make sure the shocks are the proper length. If they are too short (even by as little as 20mm), they cause rebound problems and make the opposing side overcompensate with a bouncing effect.

You need to take your car to a suspension specialist and also get them to check the front and rear wheel alignment.

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.

Knocking sound at steering wheel during turning of mistubishi adventure


It sounds like a ball joint is worn, possibly the rack end ball joint or tie rod end.
With the bumpy ride it could also be that the front shock absorber has failed.
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 wishbones.
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. When bouncing like this, the car should resist, and not keep bouncing when you let go.

Had brakes done 4 wks ago; had them rechecked 7 days ago due to excessive squealing. I was told that I needed new ball joints, upper & lower. $800 later, my brakes still squealed and my left front...


The squeal is not caused by the ball joints. A lot of times it is caused by the kind of brake pads put in there or the brake disk needs to be turned. Honestly you should take it to an ase certified shop who knows what they are doing.

The car is hard to control in the highway constantly steering


Your engine and transmission mounts need inspection. Replace as necessary.
Jack up your car and support it on jack-stands.
Rotate the front-wheels and pull it towards your chest to feel the condition of the wheel bearings.
Do the same for the rear-wheels.
As for rear bouncing around corner: your rear-shocks need to check.
Last resort is to do frame inspection.

I have just bought a Suzuki Vitara 4u2, T Reg. Is it normal to feel like your swaying and jumpin all over the road when your driving it??


Hmmm, it's normal for the ride in a 4wd to feel "different" they feel like they wallow a bit in turns and shudder a bit over bumps compared to a car, but it should not be jumping all over the road! try the old suspension test, go to each corner of the car and give it a good hard push down and let go, if the car comes back up and setles, all is good, if it doesn't go down or if it bounces up and down, the shocks/struts need replacing. Also try grabbing each of the front wheels and trying to move them left to right, then up and down, if there is any clunking or movement (without the steering wheel moving) there is a problem. left and right wobble indicates steering problems, up/down wobble indicates a wheel bearing broblem.
