Rear suspension gone weak, you don't say which model it is, but as it affecting both rear wheels, I would say its a torsion bar set up, which is bushed and fixed to the trailing arms on splines, if the bar has gone weak it puts a negative camber on the wheels and drops the clearance between body and axle. Hope that explains things.

SOURCE: Rear differential insulator rubber and damper.

I had the same problem. It ended up being the sway bay links in the front and the rear. Cost me about $325 to get fixed at a local garage. Sounds like new again with 128000 miles.

SOURCE: Front suspension

This is the anti-sway bar (also called a rollbar) bushing. It is relatively cheap and easy to repair.

Every time I go over a speed hump even slow or a bump in the road there is a thump or bang from the front right wheel


the dealer is having you on
thumps , bumps and the like indicate something worn , loose or ready to go bad quick
it could be lower ball joints, upper control ball joints or upper mount if strut suspension
could be worn rubbers in the stabilizer bar area
Best take it to an accredited suspension specialist shop and have it checked out ( get a quote to fix) before it fails and causes serious damage
if it is serious and costly get a report and then front the dealer for the cost of repairs or talk with a lawyer

I'm having problem with my Toyota AE100 which when I drive, the rear suspension sounds like 'klak..klak'. For your info, I'm using a GAB adjustable suspension with 17 inch wheels. I'm trying to get rid of...


first of all, since you are using adjustable suspension you should make sure the spring is captive in the shock absorber. Lift the rear of the vehicle and support the car on the body, allowing the rear wheels to hang down. See if the spring can easily be moved. If it can. then likely the spring has sagged, or it is incorrect for the shock absorber. If not, while you are there check that the top hat of the strut is tight by lifting the wheel and strut assembly by hand. If you get any movement in the top of the strut, there will be a loud noise while going over bumps. Another area to check are the stabiliser arm/sway bar bushes. Mounted to the body you will see a bar that goes left to right, connecting to the struts with small link arms. Try to move this bar up and down against the body, paying attention to the rubber bushes where it meets the body. If there is movement in the bushes, there will be banging sounds when going over rough surfaces or bumps. Also check the small link arms for looseness or play.

Loud banging noise when i go over a bump on passenger side front and a clicking when i pull into a parking spot or three point turn both left and right took it to dealership say they cant find anything


The clicking is the halfshafts or front wheel drive axles. I have a hard time believing that they have went bad already but anything is possible. The banging noise is something in the suspension, perhaps struts or a sway bar link.

Impala rear suspension problem


Could one shock be bad? Causing a difference in bounce return rate? I would crawl under suspended car and check all suspension bolts. Are your bushings in good shape? If one is chewed up or missing then this would cause that misalignement. What kind of suspension do you have? Solid axle or independent susp? I don't know if your car is front or rear wheel drive. I'm guessing front wheel drive.

I have a pougeot 206 gti and it is knocking at rear on bumpy roads also found it to snake around fast bends, seams to be play on rear wheel


It could be wheel bearings, jack the rear wheel up and grab the top and bottom, wobble it, and if it wobbles alot, then the bearing has gone, or you may just need to grease them up.
It could also be susoension bushes( rubber or nylon inserts on the bolt points ) again, jack the rear up and look at the bolts that hold the suspension on and wobble the components to check if they move too easily( you will always have a small amount of freeplay ) REMEMBER TO USE AXLE STANDS AND CHOCK THE FRONT WHEELS WHEN WORKING UNDER A CAR, EVEN WHEN ON AXLE STANDS you don't want a tonne of steel pinning you down.

Rear Suspension noise on 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8


Check sway bar. On some models as suspension sags, sway bar outer ends will contact the body, leaving a mark or dent just above the end, causing a bang over bumps. Only way to correct this is to change springs or add a spring lift.
