Rear passenger axle needs replaced


A Sunfire is front wheel drive, so there should not be a rear axle.
There is a rear strut, the hub and bearing is bolted to the trailing arm and strut. The tire and wheel bolt to the hub.
I would get two estimates for repairs before making a decision. It could have under-body damage too.

Have a 97 2.4L Pontiac Sunfire with under 100,000 miles, has bad crankshaft bearings,what's the easiest way to fix it,or the cheapest.


the cheap *** way to fix that would be replacing the bearings and only them and related gaskets but most of the time your crank will need machine shop work.

When turning at slow speeds, my pontiac sunfire 1998 makes a thump or clunk from my left front wheel well, could this be steering problems or a strut thqt needs to be replaced?


If the car is front wheel drive then the problem would be in the CV joint. If not front wheel drive then it could be anything in that left wheel. Brakes, bearings, strut, bushings whatever else there is.

Removed old strut last night Today can't get new


Installation
  1. sww~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: The bearing and seal assembly is press-fit onto the upper mount. The mount washers must be installed in the correct orientation.
    NOTE: Be sure to check the spring insulator for damage before assembly. If the outer metal splash shield is bent or damaged, it must be carefully bent back, so it does not touch the locator on the bearing and seal assembly.

    NOTE: New gas struts are shipped with the rod in a locked down position. To extend the new strut, remove the external tie down and/or rotate the upper end of the rod, counterclockwise.

    Install the coil spring insulator, coil spring, and upper mounting parts to the new strut assembly. Make sure the spring is correctly seated in both spring seats.
