    could this have something to do with the torsion bar it seems to happen when there are sharp bumps in the road or when i am making left turns

  • aholtkamp Jul 03, 2009

    i have had 3 mechanics look at it including the holden dealer and nobody can give me a answer.

  • aholtkamp Jul 03, 2009

    could it be the torsion bar

Sounds like it's your sway bar links and/or bushings. This is a somewhat common problem for Rodeo's. I would recommend replacing those and that will get you taken care of. Let me know if you have any further questions and thanks for using FixYa!

    Did you check the sway bar links and bushings?

    Yes, I believe it is your torsion bar. Replace that and you are good to go.

Most likely a loose muffler or a broken hanger on your exhaust. Or the tailpipe is hitting the axle because you have a bad shock or strut

Thanks

There are only a few items to check if there are new bushings and shocks.

May be a bad bed or body frame mount. Sometimes these are rubber pads and "disappear" after some time.

The clunk heard, on many 2nd generation Rodeo's, is due to wearing of the grease in the driveshaft slip yoke. To correct this, the driveshaft must be removed and regreased

Finally - depending on the year - the leaf or coil spring may be to blame. If it is broken, or de-tensioned it will cause the noise you are experiencing.



Thanks for using FixYa!!

    Have you added weight to the bed? Im pretty sure the rubber mounts are brobably missing - but not noticeable without the chassis shifting during a bump.



    Put weight in the bed, and try to recreate the noise.

Why dose my my car make banging noises going around roundabout and bends and


sounds like a suspension problem as weight being transfered around the suspension so get the springs and shock absorbers checked , easy check for shock absorbers, bounce car on each corner ,if car stops smoothly then ok but if continues to bounce after you've stopped bouncing it then the shocker is worn , get the springs tested at a garage as will need specific equipment etc

Banging noise from rear of bmw 316 e36


It could be your subframe as well big problem with E36's. Also you can check your Rear Shock Mounts in the trunk by removing the carpet, they are under the speakers. Also check your brake pads, the little shim could have fallen off causing your brake pad to rattle over bumps. And check all your heat shields.
