Question about 2004 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Knocking noise under the steering column

I have a 2.4 liter engine, just replaced the front strut's had the noise before that but after replacing the strut's didn't here it anymore, now it's back. It only does it in town and mainly when I hit bumps I am not positive it's under the steering column but I can feel it on the steering wheel when it clanks. Does anyone know what can be causing this? I was thinking maybe the shock absorber's but not sure.

It could be the struts, upper strut mounts or a broken spring on one of the struts

Shutter noise after having front struts replaced


I think I would be looking at incorrect wheel bearing adjustment or brake calipher mount loose. There would have been no reason to touch the steering other than to undo the ball joints to allow strut removal

2006 hhr rattling in front end


When you changed out the struts, did you also replace the Strut Bearing Mounts that mount the struts to the strut towers on the car? These things are notorious for making the rattling sound.

Knocking in front end had linkages replaced but the knocking is still there


replace the front struts AND the turn plates above them, they call those the "strut kits". it houses a bearing plate that turn with the steering wheel.... if the struts are too expensive to replace right now, just have the strut KITS replaced. Very common with 80K+ front wheel drive cars and almost always an area most people look over. good luck

Something on the front 'clunks' when I hit a small bump in the road, what could possibly be wrong?


I had the same problem. It was the front sway bar bushings. I took it to the dealer when it was still under warrantee. The replaced everything from struts to the steering linkage. And it still made the annoying knocking noise. I was changing the oil one day and while I was under the car I started looking where the noise was coming from. I grabbed the sway bar and pulled on it. It was loose. I bought bushings for about $12 and that fixed it.
Hope this helps

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.

2002 Odyssey. Clunking noise from frontend


Hello! When you had the struts replaced, were the strut mounts also replaced? If not, these are often the source of creaking, or clunking noises. However - this could also be from worn or loose sway bar bushings, or outer tie rod connections. All of these can be surmised by a mechanic within a matter of minutes.

I hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa!
