Generally the bushings aren't too expensive (likely about 25-30 each...But, unless you have done this kind of work, driving the bushings out and installing them can be difficult without a press. I've done many in-shop and its nothing like the ones I've done at remote locations using a hammer and chisels etc. You can do this yourself but I'd opt to do the r&r at home and have a machine shop do the actual bushing pressing. If you damage the arm ends you will need to replace the arm or do a bunch of bending to get the bushings back in place.
If you do have a press, than go at it!!

Your car being 15 years old, your better of replacing the Sway bar end link. You can pick them up at Auto Zone, Napa, and Parts Source, the urethane bushing kits go for around $35.00 for both sides. The urethane bushing kits last at life time and when removing the old end link, try tightening the nut till they snap the bolt which is easier then to remove the nut from the bolt. It takes about 30 min to replace both sides and make sure you measure both end link at the end of the job to make sure they are equal in length. Good luck and don't forget the lock tight.

example suzuki lower arms bushes per arm $120.00 = 1 1/2 hours time @ $120.00 / hr compared to new arms $130.00 each
it doesn't cost to ask first

Front suspension squeak


Hi Mark, Have a look at the ball joints, tie rod ends and rack ends. If these parts are dry or worn they can cause the problem you refer to. If the are fitted with greasing nipples gease them and test. The shock absorbers assembly can also give a similar sound. At the top of the shock absorbers there are parts known as the pads or top mounts. These have a bearing or bush which rotate allowing the wheel to be steered. If they are dry they can also create the noise. Another place to look is at the rubber cushions where the springs are mounted, top and bottom. If there is a drumming sound when driving it would be a good idea to inspect the suspension bushes. If they are worn you may be replacing tyres more frequently than you would if the bushes are replaced. Regards John .

How do i change my rubber bushings on the front suspention of my 1997 dodge ram 1500


opper Control Arm Bushings
  • To access the upper control arm, remove the shock absorber and the strut bar. Also, disconnect the sway bar from the lower control arm, if your particular Ram model is equipped with it. After that, you can hold the coil spring in place with a spring compressor.
    Secure the wheel hub assembly to the chassis using a wire before you disconnect the upper ball joint. This will prevent damage to the brake hose. When ready, release the ball joint using a ball-stud loosening tool (see Resources).
    The upper control arm mounts to the chassis with a cam bolt assembly. Once removed, you can place the control arm on a vise and remove the bushings using a bushing service tool (see Resources). When installing the new bushings, do not use any lubricant but make sure the flange on the bushing end seats properly on the arm bore. Then re-install the upper control arm. When finished, take your Dodge vehicle to a good shop to align the front suspension.
Lower Control Arm Bushings
  • Remove the shock absorber and strut bar. If your particular model is equipped with a sway bar, disconnect it from the lower control arm.
    Secure the coil spring with a spring compressor and release the lower ball joint from the wheel/hub assembly using a ball stud loosening tool (see Resources).
    Now you can release the lower control arm by removing the rear mounting bolts. Remove the bushings with a bushing service tool (see Resources). When installing the new bushings, do not use lubricant and make sure they seat properly on the control arm bore. Then replace the lower control arm. When finished, take your Dodge vehicle to a good shop to align the front suspension

52 plate BMW 320td compact front wheels wande on rough suface or ruts up to 40mph after that ok tracking done, suspension arms done can it be hard pofile michelin tyres. Also fuel consumption not good...


You say the suspension arms were done. Does that mean that you replaced the front control arms and got both new ball joints and a new control arm bushing on each side?
I presume that they checked for excessive play in the bearings at the tops of the struts while they had the control arms off?
Are we talking about following rain grooves cut in the pavement, or about following seams and traffic grooves? Following rain grooves is a trait of the tires. Following major seams and grooves is usually control arm bushings. If it is still unacceptable with new rubber bushings, you may want to try polyurethane control arm bushings. Poly bushings are getting popular among BMW owners for exactly this reason.
BMW uses firm control arm bushings on M3s, but very soft control arm bushings on everything else, even when they install optional 'sport' suspension.

Noise from front springs after replacement


If you did not replace the strut bushings, this may cause suspension noise. Check if the spring is aligned and seated properly on the strut. This needs to be fixed, otherwise other issues will occur.

Broken top bushing on front suspension strut. The wheel drops down when the car is put on a lift for servicei Is this bushing replaceable without replacing the whole strut assembly?


I belive you talking about strut tower bushing.
Yes you can replace it without repl. strut , but you have to take strut apart. Very common on Toyota's.
You need a strut compressor for this job.

Crunching noise in front end


The front suspension components tend to wear out on these cars. The strut bearings (top of the strut) wears out, and you replace those at the same time as the spring seat rubber cushions. Either of them failing can lead to a crunching noise.

Not only that, but the lower control arms have bushings in them that wear out with time/miles. When they wear out your alignment also goes out of whack and you'll eat tires up.
If you see cupping or uneven wear in the front, that's most likely it.

If you had the end links replaced and did NOT have it aligned, that could exacerbate the problem.
An alignment shop should check the ball joints, lower control arm bushings and related items to confirm that they CAN align the parts.

These are not bad cars, so you shouldn't have a lot of repair shops. It almost sounds like the shop you're going to is a little too eager to have you pay for things without proper diagnostics.

Check some of the volvo forums for a local independent shop near you - they live on reputation, unlike a dealer. Tires don't have to be what the dealer recommends, but General Grabber UHP are good ones, Michelin Primacy MXM4s are good too and Continental DWS are excellent tires too.
If you *need* tires now, you might want to put something cheap on it if they just wear out before you get the alignment and bushings/bearings issues solved.

Finish everything off with a FOUR WHEEL alignment to ensure all tires are rolling properly, and ensure the tire pressures are correct.

Your crunching noise could be compounded by all these things, and none of them are really crazy expensive or a big problem.

Good luck, and please let us know by commenting below what the actual problem is/was when you get it resolved.

I'm linking you a comprehensive suspension kit so you can see what's involved (parts and cost) and then you could find a reliable/trustworthy local mechanic to install it if you're not sure you want to do it yourself.
