Question about Volkswagen Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My 1996 VW 2.3i Kombi is soft on the front suspension. How can I lift the front? It is a problem as I do a lot of rough road driving.

I understand there were heavier springs made for the 16-seater bus. How can I source some of these? How do I get the specs for them? can I get some made?

I have a 1997 Nissan Altima and when it drives I hear a lot of rattling in the front end what can it be

IS it constant? IF it does not vary when you hit rough spots in the road then it could be a dust cover on the engine or exhaust. If it makes the noise when it is not moving it might be something wrong in the engine. If you hit bumps and hear it, it is the suspension.

I have a 1996 soft top two door sidekick, ut i drives rough. i change all the shocks but i am not getting that drive i am lookin for. what should i do?

These trucks dont drive to smooth they have a rough ride. it may be worse than normal,make sure tires are correct for truck and air in tire is correct , then have the suspension checked frt and rear make sure balljionts and control arms and there bushings are checked, sometimes the buskings go bad and make the ride loose and rough. hope this helps.

Hi, I have a lot of bumping noise when i drive on

The bushings to the front suspension are completely worn out. They must be replaced before the shock damage your other suspension parts.

2001 Tacoma 2-wheel dr, 5 lug wheels; I want to lift 2-3 lift kits seem to be available. Dave

It would be best to only do a body lift kit if driving on the road.Suspension lift kits lead to a lot of tire wear problems and the truck will never drive right again.

Suspension issue suspected

Check to see if your sway bar bushings are worn out. Check the condition of your shocks. Check your steering components, inner and outer tie rod ends, ball joints.
