    Thanks, I will check that but we're pretty sure now it's the bushings and priced it out to fix all of them at $60 a side just have to pick up a manual.

    We found out what it was, it was the sway bar bushings and very cheap to fix.

Banging noise


It sounds as though something is loose, probably in the front end. Check, or have a shop check the front end components or for any loose body parts that could be causing the nose. I hope this helps.

It sounds as though you have a c/v joint going out on your Neon. If you intend to repair it yourself, the replacement part is around $40-$50.

Banging noise when you drive


This is a hard problem to describe, I know, and I will toss out a few possibilities. If the noise occurs when the car is accelerating, it can be motor mounts, or carriage mounts on front-wheel drive vehicles. Transmissions can bang into gear. Drive shaft u-joints can bang before they fail. C-V joints in front wheel or 4 wheel drive units can bang when worn out.

The exhaust system can break loose and bang on the frame. Brake calipers can rock in their mounts and transmit sound. Tie-rod ends can make a knocking noise on every bump you hit. There were recalls on gas tank straps for some Ford made units, so a loose gas tank can bang.

TTerrible traction in ice and snow 85000km and have gone through three sets of tires. when the tires grab the front end bangs, tires slip front and bangs and on and on.


I would buy a good set of snow tires for winter use. As far as the banging sound is concerned it sounds like you may have a bad motor\transmission mount.

At freeway speeds if i hit a bump the front end will start to shake and shudder untill i reduce my speed


It could be because of worn out ball joints, or steering arm bushings. When ball joints wear out, they tend to rest against one end on even pavement, but as soon as you take the load off, such as in a bump, they go "crazy" and start banging against the stops until you reduce speed. If this has been going on for a while, there should be telltale signs on the wear pattern of the front tires. If you take the vehicle to a front end alignment place, they will tell you which parts have excessive play that should be replaced before aligning the front end.
