Lower Control Arm

Print
The lower control arm is a two-piece welded unit with a riveted ball joint. A conventional rubber bushing is used for the rear lower control arm pivot. The front lower control arm bushing is mounted vertically.


REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION

Some special tools are required to perform this operation including, a front hub spindle removal tool and a suitable ball joint separator tool.

WARNING Do not hammer or pry ball joint from knuckle. Failure to use recommended tools may cause damage to the ball joint and seal.
See Figure 1

Vibration between 55 and 65 mph


I am a minor shade tree mechanic here so this is just a guess. It might be a front brake rotor, a break pad caliper that has a sticky hydraulic piston, front wheel bearing, or something else. Look at the pad and rotor wear for it possibly being a break system issue. Not sure, if you do not have a solid front axle look at the inner part of the wheel under the vehicle where the ball mates into the socket for any wet fluids or unusual gunk or build up around the axle and break calipers for a wheel bearing problem. Jack up the front end and make sure you chalk the rear tires, vehicle is in PARK and the steering wheel is unlocked as to where the steering wheel can be turned if needed. After vehicles front tires are off the ground try to pivot the front wheels to point in a different direction left turn or right turn. This can be tried by physically grabbing the tire trying to move the tire to point left or right. If the front tires are able to be pointed in a different direction without the aid of the steering wheel, then it could be a wheel bearing issue or a more serious issue. Hope you can make sense of these instructions, and hope this helps you find and fix any and all existing problems you are having with your vehicle.

How remove the rotor to change bearing for 2005 chev colorado front


first you remove all the lug nuts and the wheel and tire. To get the rotor off you will need to remove the brake caliper. they are held in with 1/4" hex screws. If you don't have an allen wrench you can use a socket extension to removes these. Once unscrewed the calpet simply lifts off the rotor and the rotor is ready to come off. You will need to remove the axle nut and keeper then the rotor slides off towards you and the wheel bearings will come out with the rotor.

When I push the brake the truck starts bumping and shaking and it also does it when I brake around turns. We've replaced the brakes and rotors. And even parts in the steering. What could it be?


You need to have the rotors resurfaced and also the rear rotrs or drums what ever it has, they are out of round, the best way is to resurface them with a on car lathe, the brakes are pulsating the drums or rotors are out of round causing the steering and pedal to shake, i would also have the front end checked, hope this helps.

    4. Place the transaxle in NEUTRAL.
    5. Install the dust shield, being careful not to damage the bearing outboard lip seal.
    6. Install the hub and bearing bolts, then tighten to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).

  2. For 1987-92 vehicles, perform the following:
    1. Install a new hub and bearing seal in the steering knuckle with a suitable seal installation tool. Install the steering knuckle to the strut.
    2. Lubricate the hub and bearing with grease. Fill the cavity between the seal and bearing completely.
    3. Install the halfshaft.
    4. Connect the ball joint to the steering knuckle and insert a new O-ring around the hub and bearing assembly.
    5. Install the hub and bearing, and shield into the steering knuckle. Tighten the bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (90 Nm).

  3. If equipped, attach the ABS front wheel speed sensor connector, then clip the wire to the dust shield.

What is the procedure to replace the drivers side axle (CV joints)on a 1999 Chevy Cavalier. I have the new axle just need the remove and replace procedure


You don't need the special tools that they use in this procedure, you can use a hammer and a block of wood to get the axle out of the hub and you can use a pry bar to get the axle out of the transmisson.



Notice: Care must be exercised to prevent the constant-velocity joints from being over-extended. When either end of the drive axle is disconnected, over-extension of the joint could result in separation of internal components and possible joint failure. Drive axle joints and seals should be protected any time service is performed on or near the drive axles. Failure to observe this can result in interior joint or seal damage and possible joint failure.
Notice: Prior to removal of drive axle assembly, cover all sharp edges in the area of the drive axle with shop towels so that the seal is not damaged during removal.
Removal Procedure
  1. Raise and suitably support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in General Information.
  2. Remove the tire and the wheel assembly. Refer to Tire and Wheel Removal and Installation in Tires and Wheels.
  3. Place shop towels underneath the outer joint to protect from any sharp edges.

  4. 141983.gif
    tif.gif
  5. Insert a drift (1) into the caliper and the rotor to prevent the rotor from turning.
  6. Remove the drive axle nut (2) and the washer.
  7. Remove the lower ball join from the steering knuckle. Refer to Lower Control Arm Ball Joint Replacement in Front Suspension. If you remove the right axle, turn the wheel to the left. If you remove the left axle, turn the wheel to the right.
  8. Disconnect the wheel speed speed sensor harness. Refer to Wheel Speed Sensor Replacement in Antilock Brake System.
  9. Disconnect the stabilizer link from the lower control arm. Refer to Stabilizer Shaft Link Replacement in Front Suspension.

  10. 442393.gif
    tif.gif
  11. Use the J 28733-B in order to disengage the axle from the hub and the bearing.
  12. Separate the hub and the bearing assembly from the drive axle. Move the strut and the knuckle assembly rearward.

  13. 500285.gif
    tif.gif
  14. Remove the inner joint from the transaxle using J 33008 attached to J 29794 and J 2619-01 for the intermediate shaft, if equipped.
Installation Procedure Notice: Prior to installation of drive axle assembly, cover all sharp edges in the area of the drive axle with shop towels so that the seal is not damaged during installation.
Any time the front halfshaft is removed, the transmission (the halfshaft male and female shank) and the knuckle sealing surfaces should be inspected for debris or corrosion.
If debris or corrosion are present on the sealing surfaces, clean them with a 320 grit cloth or equivalent. Transmission fluid may be used to clean off any of the remaining debris. The surface should be wiped dry, and the halfshaft should be reinstalled free of any debris or corrosion buildup.

    189013.gif
    tif.gif
  1. Install the drive axle (2) into the transaxle (1). Place a non-ferrous drift into the groove on the joint housing and then tap until the drift is seated. Be careful not to damage the axle seal or dislodge the seal garter spring when you install the axle.

  2. 442471.gif
    tif.gif
    Important: Verify that the drive axle is seated by grasping on the inner joint housing and pulling outboard.
  3. Install the drive axle (1) into the hub and bearing assembly (2).
  4. Install the stabilizer link. Refer to Stabilizer Shaft Link Replacement in Front Suspension.
  5. Connect the wheel speed sensor harness. Refer to Wheel Speed Sensor Replacement in Antilock Brake System.
  6. Install the lower ball joint to the steering knuckle. Refer to Lower Control Arm Ball Joint Replacement in Front Suspension.

  7. 141983.gif
    tif.gif
    Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  8. Install the washer and the new drive axle nut (2).
  9. Insert a drift (1) into the caliper and the rotor in order to prevent the rotor from turning.
    Tighten
    Tighten the drive axle nut to 200 N·m (144 lb ft).
  10. Install the tire and the wheel assembly. Refer to Tire and Wheel Removal and Installation in Tires and Wheels.
  11. Lower the vehicle
