Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Rear suspeion noise,after getting new tyres shocks with all new seats top mount,sway bar links ,bushes plus,new wheel bearings,and alignment, and now I have looked at all control arms x4 control arms

I think I wont tell petters suspension about the noise I'll just take advantage of there $28 suspension check and c what they find,I heard of people taking there car there and saying its got a noise at the back and before she new it she had replaced all bushings plus shocks and $400 later still had the problem,so I think this might be the way to go,unless u have a diagnose for it,I looked at most common problem with the Hyundai accent 2000 suspension.like once my car started to splatter I looked up most common with this problem and it said ignition leads and spot on they were,anyway hope to hear a thought

Could be a loose exhaust bracket or fuel tank strap. Noises like that are hard to trace. You could also remove the back insulation, carpeting etc. and see if you can hear where its coming from better. Take it out on a rough road and see if you can feel any handling issues.

Testimonial: "Thanks ,I did find a loose tank strap,I took the whole entire back seat ,but its like a bushing has hit steel,only when I go over a bump,sounds like the shocks arnt tight but I torqued everything to spec,all bushings look good no movement ,and it sounds like its both sides, so I am thinking rear 4 control arms if it was trailing arms I don't think they both would go at same time,I have brought new trailing arm and control arm bushings now I need to by a press $129 for 12 tone press and to take them to get pressed $100 for all but I don't have any way of this option as only 1 car.any thoughts on my idea,s any tip on pressing the bus hinge as they have steel center guide"

    I'd check the rear stabilizer bar, it could be coming into contact with something. If you have some pipe insulation you could put over it that could take care of it. Unless you want to take a chance with a hammer, slide hammer, reamer, or improvised caliper compresser I'd just buy or rent a press. You can check the control arms by jacking up the car from underneath the shock or control arm (right behind the wheel). Its not a real jack point but will work to lift the wheel so you can see if anything is loose or out of alignment when the wheel is up. Check both sides. Hyundai's have terrible suspensions to begin with and seem to need constant alignment. Best of luck

What noise? And year and make of car?
A clicking noise on turns is a worn CV joint on the axle shafts. A grinding noise at one of the wheels could be a wheel bearing. Worn brake pads may cause squealing, screeching other high pitched noise.

My 2003 yukon xl has a rear suspension noice every time i go over a bump or so


2003? original shocks,I assume.
Could be a loose shock bolt,loose sway bar bushing or end link bushing
Is the tail pipe touching the frame?
When it cools,wiggle the tail pipe forcefully up and down.
Crawl under there and inspect both rear shock absorber mounts and sway bar bushings and mounting bolts.
if it LOOKS good,have someone bounce the rear of the truck when you are nearby. Hear the noise? left side or right side?

When I back out of my driveway turning the steering wheel left, I hear a clunk or thud that seems to be coming from the right back area as I'm straightening out. I'm concerened that this may be a...


I would get a second opinion to compare physical inspection results. The wheel bearing is most urgent, as are control arm bushings.

Sound can transmit from one end of the car to the other, but the noise was heard in the rear and the balljoints are in the front.

The sway bar and its' bushings can make a noise. You will get body lean on turns with worn components, and some rear drive models have links which can break and detach.

You need to identify the Car Brand and model so the Experts know what you may have for components.

As you may have noticed, I have not said much about shocks. If you have shocks and not struts, there are different priorities. If either is leaking, the priority increases. Some strut towers have a bearing ring and when worn out, can be a safety issue. Shocks fit inside control arms and do not have a bearing ring. Rear suspensions vary, some use control arms on multilink types, others use a rear axle with springs.

But get the wheel bearing fixed. Have tierod ends checked. The guy under the car will have a better idea of its physical condition than what we can tell online.

Back end weves side to side


Were you towed recently, or any damage? The rear ends of these cars are notorious for going out of alignment. Check bushings, sway bar links, wheel bearings for play, etc. any more info you give me can help me narrow it down.. Thanks, Dean

How do i change my rubber bushings on the front suspention of my 1997 dodge ram 1500


opper Control Arm Bushings
  • To access the upper control arm, remove the shock absorber and the strut bar. Also, disconnect the sway bar from the lower control arm, if your particular Ram model is equipped with it. After that, you can hold the coil spring in place with a spring compressor.
    Secure the wheel hub assembly to the chassis using a wire before you disconnect the upper ball joint. This will prevent damage to the brake hose. When ready, release the ball joint using a ball-stud loosening tool (see Resources).
    The upper control arm mounts to the chassis with a cam bolt assembly. Once removed, you can place the control arm on a vise and remove the bushings using a bushing service tool (see Resources). When installing the new bushings, do not use any lubricant but make sure the flange on the bushing end seats properly on the arm bore. Then re-install the upper control arm. When finished, take your Dodge vehicle to a good shop to align the front suspension.
Lower Control Arm Bushings
  • Remove the shock absorber and strut bar. If your particular model is equipped with a sway bar, disconnect it from the lower control arm.
    Secure the coil spring with a spring compressor and release the lower ball joint from the wheel/hub assembly using a ball stud loosening tool (see Resources).
    Now you can release the lower control arm by removing the rear mounting bolts. Remove the bushings with a bushing service tool (see Resources). When installing the new bushings, do not use lubricant and make sure they seat properly on the control arm bore. Then replace the lower control arm. When finished, take your Dodge vehicle to a good shop to align the front suspension

I'm having problem with my Toyota AE100 which when I drive, the rear suspension sounds like 'klak..klak'. For your info, I'm using a GAB adjustable suspension with 17 inch wheels. I'm trying to get rid of...


first of all, since you are using adjustable suspension you should make sure the spring is captive in the shock absorber. Lift the rear of the vehicle and support the car on the body, allowing the rear wheels to hang down. See if the spring can easily be moved. If it can. then likely the spring has sagged, or it is incorrect for the shock absorber. If not, while you are there check that the top hat of the strut is tight by lifting the wheel and strut assembly by hand. If you get any movement in the top of the strut, there will be a loud noise while going over bumps. Another area to check are the stabiliser arm/sway bar bushes. Mounted to the body you will see a bar that goes left to right, connecting to the struts with small link arms. Try to move this bar up and down against the body, paying attention to the rubber bushes where it meets the body. If there is movement in the bushes, there will be banging sounds when going over rough surfaces or bumps. Also check the small link arms for looseness or play.
