Question about 1995 Jaguar XJ6

Rear end noise On a street rod

I backed into the **** end of a concrete curb. One of the coilover upper mount bolts was broken. This has been replaced.The rear end makes a "squalling" noise, that ceases as the car stops, but doesn't really vary in sound under different road speeds. The noise is coming from the right side (same as broken bolt). I suspect wheel or output shaft bearings. When I hit the curb, I hit hard. Hard enough that the lower control arm was up on the top of the curb. Could there be any alignment problems? I know nothing about Jaguar IRS. Any help/direction is appreciated. Thanks.

It could well prove to be a big job? by the sounds of it I would get it to a Jag dealer or indi Jag garage to be looked at properly.
It might mean that you need a new or second hand IRS unit.

Rear shock replacment


Jack up rear of car, support it with a jack stands, Remove wheel, and then jack up axle to relieve tension on shock/spring. Remove lower shock bolt, then the upper bolts. Remove assembly. The hard part is to remove the upper mount from the shock rod. Couple of tricks are offset box end wrench on the nut and a small cresent wrench on the flats of the rod. Or, use a cheap socket with flats ground on the sides and slide it over the rod and use 2 cresent wrenches ,one on the socket ground down flats and the other on the rod.

Ball joint bolt fell out upper in 2007 GMC Envoy


Upper ball joint? That's not related to the job of replacing a tie rod or tie rod end. It's also not related to the brake job.

It's an '07 and it had a bolt-in ball joint? That's not factory - it's been replaced before.

Tcs off slp


broken motor mount, or loose.a great way to alsoalliviate the noise and apply longivity would be to lube your components/by recommendations sometimes using part oil part lube depending on the age and wear of components. guessing your at about 120 to 130 thousand miles, and need service. not tranny related in reverse. however, ubolts are notorius (UJOINTS) for making reverse noise, also a dry or sluggy internal unit can malfuntion partss. the slip fifth sounds like a driven hard and proud problem, lower your rpm at shift and baby the rest of the tranny life. the snycro bolt clip can jam with hard shift by operator, and a bent drive shaft or that of can trike noise of such. be weary of cv parts/boots/ball joints and such, however, transaxel no doubt needs lubed and serviced immediately. oh and lighten the foot up, its not an off road truck its a very delicate long lasing car with components that can not take ruts, curbs nor parking concrete stops. easy shift, or the ride ended.

I hv a '01 Aurora w/ 105000miles. On choppy pavement, the rear tends to skip sideways w/assoc knocking noises like worn or loose struts. Left rear tire on outside shows more wear than the other three....


This is related to the "link assy" parts on the rear end. They are about 30" long. One end bolts near the center of the car. The other ends have a tie-rod type end and mount to the rear wheel assembly.
The knocking noises are because the link assy are bad. About $70.00 each for these. I would also check the upper shock mounts on the rear. These go bad and will cause noise as well. About $15.00/ea. Easy to replace.
The skip sideways is because the link assy or rear alignment is off. This is easily fixed and should be done as soon as the parts are replaced.

Car pops when driving over curb into driveway -


Check the bushings in the wheel well that is making the noise - it could be a ball joint, sway bar end link, control arm link, or even an upper strut mount. Lots of things can cause the noises like that, but usually they're not too hard to see - failing bushings usually have visible tears and/or leakage of fluid.

How do you install adjustable lowering coilover springs on a 1991 Honda CRX SI?


NOT NECESSARILY IN ORDER: Remove the 2 nuts from the top of your shock tower under the hood - remove the pivot bolt at the bottom of your shock fork - remove the upper control arm ball joint nut - remove the lower control arm ball joint nut - bang on the thick metal near the ball joints with a hammer (not hitting the rubber or the ball joint's bolts - remove the tie rod ball joint nut and do the same with the hammer - pull the shock and spring assembly out - You might need a spring compressor to take out the stock spring safely - remove the nut on top of the shock - It's recommended that you replace your shocks now - install the new springs according to the directions with the package - get a camber correction kit for your car - put it back together and immediately go pay for an alignment. Good luck.

What is the name of the bracket the spring sits in on 1994 f150 4x4 single shock frnt end bolts to the frame


If it's the part on the upper end of the coilspring, and it is a coilover suspension in front (meaning the shock absorber is mounted in the middle of the coilspring) then it is a called the shock top plate, and if it is a model where the shock absorver and coilspring are mounted one beside the other, then the bracket is called simply the spring seat. Although in both cases you can just ask for a spring seat for the front suspension and they will give you the right part and will know what you're talking about. If it is the part on the lower end of the coilspring, then it is called the control arm and is usually a one piece unit consisting of the control arm itself, the ball joints and the mount bushings.
