I have a clunk sound in the passenger front when turn left and also when i let off the brake after applying the brakes. i have changed on both sides of the car--- struts springs, lower control arm all...


You need to replace the upper control arm bushings and upper ball joint on both sides as well. You can buy them as a complete assembly. I had a similar problem and basically needed to replace everything in the front end of my 94 third. On mine the sound was the upper control arm shifting position on stops, starts, turns.

How to change the control arm on a 96 thunderbird?


UPPER CONTROL ARM:

Do not disassemble the upper arm. If the ball joint or bushings are faulty, or the upper arm is damaged, the entire upper arm must be replaced.
  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2. Remove the front wheels. Support the lower control arm assembly with a floor jack.
  3. Separate the upper ball joint from the steering knuckle using a ball joint separator tool.
  4. Remove the self-locking nuts from the upper arm anchor bolts. Remove the upper arm from the vehicle.

Do not disassemble the upper arm. If the ball joint or bushings are faulty, or the upper arm is damaged, the entire upper arm must be replaced.

Must the torsion bar be removed on my 1995 Ford explorer 4whdr.6cyl when changing out the lower ball joints? And what kind of puller would be needed to remove the spindle/rotors?


You do not need to remove the torsion bar. just jack up the vehicle under the lower control arm. The shock will also keep the lower control arm from traveling to far.

If it has a torsion bar running through the lower control arm than it must have independent front suspension. Remove the caliper and bracket. The rotor should knock off but it can be left on. remove the axle nut. The drive axle should push through the hub. Some tapping with a hammer may be needed. Separate the upper and lower ball joints from the knuckle and remove the knuckle (you will be able to push the drive axle all the way through once the knuckle is free of the ball joints).

remove the snap ring from the lower ball joint and hit it out with a hammer. You will need a ball joint press to install the new ball joint.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Can you show me detail pictures of step by step repair of ball joint and controll arm of 1990 ford thunderbird v6 3.1 automatc


prev.gif next.gif REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Upper ball joints are not replaceable. The upper ball joint is part of the upper control arm bushing joint and is not serviced separately. If the upper ball joints are found to be defective, the entire upper control arm bushing joint assembly must be replaced. Lower Ball Joint INSPECTION
  1. Support the vehicle in normal driving position with ball joints loaded.
  2. Wipe the grease fitting and checking surface, so they are free of dirt and grease. The checking surface is the round boss into which the grease fitting is threaded.
  3. The checking surface should project outside the cover. If the checking surface is inside the cover, replace the lower arm assembly. prev.gif next.gif

Very common BMW problem. The front lateral arms that support the front to rear motion of the wheel. BMW calls it the upper, lower support arm. Two arms connect there. one left to right (think typical lower control arm, and this arm) It has a ball joint that connects to the lower most part of the strut and extends rearward to the rear crossmember and has a large bushing pressed into the arm. You can replace just the bushing if the ball joint end is ok. Bushings are about $45 each and you will need a press.
