Clunking noise in the rear of the vehicle is a broad statement. When is the vehicle doing it? Is it all the time or just over bumps? Is it happening only going around curves? Is it a constant bump that speeds up and slows down with the vehicle speed. You would be supprised how many clunking noises can come from the driveline not the suspension. It could be anything from a bushing to your rear differential getting ready to grenade.

It will allow extra sway which will alter your handling in the near future and in time will do damage to the rest of the suspension.

What are swey bars on a ford focus


A sway bar is a suspension piece that keeps the left and right side of vehicle connected to help with turns. They are held together through sway bar links at each end, which are fairly common to break or rattle over bumps.

check the track bar bushings for play in them, also check to make sure that the sway bar links are not broken, also if the rear axle has leaf springs for suspension it then could be the rear shackle bushings.

Safety says i need sway bar bushings.what and where are these?


the sway bar is a bar that runs acrossed the front of the van from strut to strut. It is bolted to the cradel and then has links that run from the bar to the strut to increase stability. The sway bar bushings are rubber mounts that hold the bar down to the cradel. The bar runs though the mounts one each side where the bar and the cradel meet. If they are wore out you will normally hear a clucking noise from the front end when you hit bumps. To remove and replace them there is two bolts that hold a steel cap on top of them on each side. Remove the cap from both sides then the rubber mounts will have a split in them so you can get them off the bar. To install them is just the reverse of the removal. Good luck! 4 thumbs up is appeciated if this helps.

Cheap and easy fix, just replace the rubber bushings under the back where the sway bar is held to the chassis. The rubber gets worn and hard and allows the bar to rattle when going over bumps.

How to replace a sway bar end links to a 94 intrepid



REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

The rear suspension on LH platform vehicles is a fully independent suspension. A stabilizer bar (also called a sway bar) is mounted in rubber isolator bushings and connects the rear struts through links. Note that the fuel tank must be removed to remove the stabilizer bar.

CAUTION OFF. The fuel system pressure must be relieved before disconnecting any fuel lines. Failure to do so may result in fire and/or personal injury.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove both rear wheels.

  1. Position a transmission jack under the fuel tank just forward of the crossmember to help support the fuel tank when crossmember is removed.
  2. Remove the four crossmember to frame rail attaching bolts. Remove the fuel tank.
  3. Remove the stabilizer bar to link assembly attaching nuts and remove the bar and isolator bushings as an assembly from the vehicle. Inspect the isolator bushings for damage or excessive wear and replace, if necessary.

To install:
  1. Inspect for broken or distorted retainers and bushings. If bushing replacement is required, replacement bushings can be installed by locating the split in the bushing, prying open and removing the defective bushing from around the stabilizer bar.
  2. Install the stabilizer bar and isolator bushings back into the vehicle as an assembly making sure bar is centered in vehicle so it doesn't contact other suspension components.
  3. Install stabilizer bar attaching link onto stabilizer bar. Install new link to bar attaching nuts and tighten to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).

Replace the sway bar bracket bolt with new after loosening or removing them. Only use original equipment bolts as replacements.
  1. Install the fuel tank back onto the vehicle.
  2. Position the crossmember on frame rails and install four mounting bolts. Tighten attaching bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  3. Remove transmission jack from under the fuel tank.
  4. Install the rear wheels and lug nuts. Tighten the lug nuts, in a star pattern sequence, to 95-100 ft. lbs. (129-135 Nm).
  5. Lower the vehicle. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  6. Pressurize the fuel system and check for leaks.
  7. Check and reset the rear wheel toe to specifications as required.

besides changing the bushings, did you check the sway bar itself or the degree of the linkage bolts, in time seeing as it's 16 years old now it may have been stressed and bent, buying smaller linkage bolts with stiffer bushings may help tremendously...worst case scenerio you may have to replace the sway bar itself.
