Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

1 Answer

Clunking sound when going over bumps, especially at lower speeds

We have had the control arm bushings in our 2006 Cobalt replaced under warranty. Car has only 26,000 miles. This has made the problem better but not solved it completely. I read other posts and it appears that more than one thing may be the problem.

The lower control arm bushings in this car are not the best quality you should check them and also sway bar links and bushings are very common.

It is most likely the control arm bushings. These are notorious for going out on Cobalts. I have had mine replaced twice.

The control arms on both the driver and passenger side have rubber bushings which probably deteriorated. This is causing metal to hit metal when the car goes over bumps.

The bushings themselves are relatively inexpensive; you can most likely pick them up at a dealership for under $40. The only issue is installing them. You have to use a hydraulic press to press the old bushings out and press the new bushings in. This isn't difficult, but you need the equipment.

Loud clunking noise in front end over bumps


This is most likely one or both of these:

The intermediate steering shaft loses lubrication and develops a clunk - this is an engineering deficiency in many GM products dating back to the early 90s.

and/or

The electrically assisted steering column actually has plastic gears in it which wear down quickly, get sloppy and cause clunking through the steering wheel.

If your car is out of warranty, this will be expensive.

GM knows about both of these issues, and continues to engineer these problems into their products.
