If the little piece that is welded to the frame broke off from the frame, find a welder and have them weld them back up, shouldn't cost very much at all for a 10 minute job. However if the whole piece is broken, get a new one and have a welder weld it back up, cost a little more.

Rear knocking 2000 impala


A broken sway bar will also manifest itself while driving over an uneven or washboard-like road surface. A clanking or clunking sound will emanate from the front or rear suspension. Broken sway bars will emit knocking and scraping noises over potholes and dips, sometimes rhythmically. This happens when a sway bar bushing joint swings freely without support and strikes the chassis frame or control arm. Hope this helps.

My 2003 oldsmobile bravada back end sits very low. Its either my strut or shocks.My question is, for this model, are the rear shocks coil or air springs?


The shocks do not set ride Hightower. The leaf springs set ride hieght in the rear. So ether the leaf springs are worn out or the shackles that hold the springs to the frame are broken (should be very obvious if they are). Most likely the rear leaf springs are the problem.

Rear end body sways back and forth on my 2002 jeep grand cherokee


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.

Can I drive a Pontiac Grand Prix with a broken rear stabilizer safely?


By rear stabilizer, do you mean trailing arm or sway bar? If you have a busted trailing arm, I highly advise against driving. This is the bar that runs from the wheel hub transversely toward the front of the car and attaches to the frame. However, a busted rear sway bar, which runs transversely across the vehicle and runs along side the leaf spring, isn't as severe of an problem. You will just run into spongy turning issues.

My rear leaf springs have rusted off the frame in the rear, is there anyway to fix? The part that is rusted off is where the leaf spring connects to the frame.


a 10 year old car with a rusted frame? i would call ford and complain, but look in the yellow pages under welders,and see if one of them can fabricate you a piece and weld it on, so you can re-attach the leaf springs

My rear end has dropped and looks crazy and will not lift


Do you have:
1. Shocks and Leaf Springs?
If so: the Shocks could be "shot" and/or broken or completely discharged. OR the Leaf Springs Retainers or the Leaf Springs have broken. The Retainers should have two (2) bolts holding braces which hold the multiple leafs of the Leaf Springs together. Check these. Also you have bushings bolted then welded to the frame that will need to be checked.
2. Struts with Coils (Springs)?
If so: the Struts could be "shot, and/or broken or completely discharged. The Coils (Springs) could be broken of dislocated.
3. Coils (Springs) without Struts?
If so: the Coils (Springs) could be broken or dislocated.
4. Independent Bar Suspension?
If so: the independent bars could be bent, broken or dislocated from their frame connections with the frame.
5. Solid Axle?
If so: the Axle could be bent, broken or dislocated from their frame connections with the frame.
Since you cannot lift the vehicle, I am assuming you are using the jack under the axle to lift? This would point to the Axle/Bars being broken.

Was an excessive load (weight) put on the back of the SUV lately?

If you can't lift the rear of the vehicle, jack-up and properly support the front then jack-up and support the middle towars the rear of the vehicle to gain access to the rear of the vehicle for a better look.
However while doing this if the rear starts rising: keep a careful eye on the rear tires to see if they are going lower than what they would normally go when you are jacking-up the rear, especially with a broken Axle or Bars. THIS COULD CAUSE THE BROKEN OR DISLOCATED PARTS TO FURTHER BREAK OR CAUSE OTHER CONNECTING PARTS TO FAIL AND BREAK OR COULD CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE REST OF THE SURROUNDING AREAS OF THE CAR. I have seen an Axle and Bars that were broken "pierce" into the body of the vehicle because they were not carefully watching.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional information, problems, or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
ps...when describing your problem feel free to fully explain in as much detail as you can, including in this case what type of rear suspension system you have, 2WD, 4WD, AWD, your engine size etc. There is no limit to describing your problem. It enables us to get a very precise answer to your very precise problem quicker.

How do you install Smittybilt Nerf Bars on a 1984 Ford Bronco? Does the rear of the Nerf Bar bolt to the back leaf spring and does the front bolt to the frame?


You're going to want to take that nerf bar, attach it to the spring leaf with the front bolt and frame as you say. Put some inhibitor behind the unit too. After flexing the torque rod for a while, move the rear axle upward by jacking underneath it. From there you should find that the whole thing just slips into place.
