SOURCE: rattle/clunk front end of a 2001 grand caravan

Front stabilizer/sway bar bushings sound worn. I had same, on my 91'. Felt like someone was thumping the floor under my feet sometimes. I managed to get away with spinning the outer ones at control arms, but replaced ones in middle at frame.

In absolute honesty. Am not a fan of lowering cars coz it knocks **** out of the suspension but........ It sounds like you have something called a CV Joint thats worn it's part of your drive shaft. Find a car park and Drive the car in a circle full lock both left and right this will tell you if im right. I'd Have both sides changed as a matter of course. Steve in the UK take care.

SOURCE: Front end alignment off

Go have the vehicle aligned, when you replace a tie rod, there is a chance that you may be off by a thread or two. Save your tires, go get an alignment.

SOURCE: Struts and Front End Alignment for 2003 Impala 58K miles

This can be a wide ranging price. Labor prices vary, and so do parts, and needed work to align. There is no way to adequately give you a quote without looking at the car, and talking to you about the level of quality of parts you desire. I would make sure you absolutely need struts, because with 58k miles is unlikely unless you have very bad roads you've driven on. The level of quality of struts varies enormously, and so does the price. At any rate make sure you don't pay for quality parts and get cheaper quality parts. (probably the first way a disreputable shop makes ill gotten money).

I just replaced front struts on 2003 mazda tribute, now it has a bad shimmy at about 45 mph


Have the alignment checked. Anytime you do front end suspension work, the alignment needs to be checked-it is probably off.

2008 chevy cobalt violent vibration arouhd 55mph ok below and above speed have replaced joints tires struts, vibration still there


Warped rotors or out of balance tires can cause this. Have you had a front-end alignment after putting these steering/suspension parts on? When replacing these parts IT IS CRITICAL TO HAVE ALIGNED. Also, Have you checked condition of front HUB/WHEEL BEARINGS?

Both front tyres have excessive wear after only a few thousand miles on the insides. Appears to be similar rate of wear on each tyre. Tracking adjusted last service, so unlikely to be that. Any ideas?...


I think a real good place to start would be to have a front end alignment, and struts and springs checked. Most alignment places will check front end all over before performing the alignment, to insure that it isn't worn parts causing the problem, as well as insuring that you aren't driving under dangerous conditions. Your problem could be as simple as a camber adjustment to correct negative camber.( tire is leaning inward at top, which causes tire at road surface to run on inside of tread.) Weak struts and springs are also a consideration, especially if still original on a 95' vehicle.
Here's a link that explains alignment pretty well to help you understand.

How do u change struts on a 2000 saab 93


Since the struts are the important suspension parts of the car specially of the front, the job must be taken seriously and done with good tools. Also the alignment must be checked after replacing of the strut which need a good sytem.
So even though the strut can be removed and fitted like removing the strut with jacking up the front , removing the wheel assembly , removing the link and pulling out down.
But care must be taken to put back with new bushes on the balance rods, check the tie rod ends and suspension bushes.
My Advice is to get the OE component replaced by the service dealer, checked, aligned with warranty.

Has a clunk in front end when i go over speed bumps or any bumps in general


It sounds like you have worn struts in the front,you can check the top nut on the struts it could be loose,but most likely you will need to replace both front struts and when that is done make sure to get a front end alignment also.

Front end alignment off


Likely you did not mark the position of the eccentric washers that go through the strut where it attaches to the steering knuckle. You can get it closer by moving them but you need an alignment shop to get it exact.

Sturt and Mounts


As far as driving without having a front end alignment done AFTER the strut replacement, you should head to a shop and have a front end alignment done. You MAY notice some vibrating or tire wear if not taken care of.

Looking at your struts online, the boot comes with the struts. All you have to do is drop yours and replace with the new!
