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

Check the lower ball joints, lower control arm bushings, sway bar links, and sway bar bushings to the frame. Could be a broken sway bar also.

How to repair vw


Lift Vehicle and place on axle stands. Remove wheels. Disconnect the lower control arm from the bolts that hold the ball joint, or from the knuckle. Undo the rear two bolts that hold the ''D'' shaped rear bush and the bolt that holds the forward bush. Have it pressed out and replace with new one. Reverse the procedure for installation. While the arm is out check the condition of the ball joints and replace if needed. After assembly have the front wheel alignment checked.

My steering goes mad when driving on rough roads, mostly on left side. a bit like driving a jelly. could this be the springs?


It is unlikely to be the springs but more likely to be the ancillary suspension components such as the shock absorbers (suspension dampers) and either tired or worn rubber bushings on the the anti-roll (anti-sway) bar and control arms. Some cars are fitted with a steering damper arm and if this loses its damping effectiveness the steering will shimmy about. Bounce on each corner of the front of the car. The body should rebound and come to rest within one and half cycles. If the car continues to bounce the shocks need replacing. Lift the front of the car and remove the front wheels. Inspect the rubber bushings of control arms and shock absorber mounts for wear and annular cracks. Use a pry bar to apply force in order to detect for undue play in linkages and control arms. Check for play in the steering control arms ball joints and in the steering rack itself, including the mounting bolts. Everything should be tight and firm. Anything obviously loose and/or worn should be replaced.

Creaking sound from front passenger side of VW Polo 2003


the most common problem is the anti roll bar .where the bushes clamp around the bar there is a piece of plastic that the bush clamps around,the plastic breaks and can fall out .or the bushes that you describe are also common as a cause of noise or broken front springs .it will be one of them for sure.cheers

Pulling to Left


Hello!
Perhaps you may be looking in the wrong area, have you checked tyre pressures? also tyre condition? you have obviously had the tracking checked? If all these are o.k. maybe a Brake caliper is binding slightly on the nearside wheel?
Good luck! Hope this sorts it for you? press the Blue Button to appraise my Free effort if it does,
