Which bolt? Control arm should have the first to tighten down. Sway bar next. If the bolt is the link, loosen the other side first. Start the bolt/nut then tighten both down.

Have replaced all tie rods; inner&outer;struts&upper mounts;sway bar bushings & links;lower control arms with ball joints& passenger side upper motor mount.none of these have changed this noise even s


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.

94 ford thunderbird front end wheel assembly chassis bar that connects lower control arm to frame of vehicle in front end.


The bar would be the sway bar.

The parts that connect the sway bar to the lower control arm are called the sway bar links.

1997 gmc pickup swerves side to side. hard to steer.hard to keep on lane.


There is a sway bar that connects to the lower cotrol arms. It has 2 bushings that hold it to the frame and 2 links that connects it to the control arms. The bar goes all the way across the front of the truck. If you see light threw the bushings replace them. Replace the sway bar links, I can bet you these are already broke.

My mazda is making a real loud clanking noise when i go over bumps. the sway bar is rubbing against another part i think it the cv covers. could that be the prob


Your intuition is correct - there's a suspension system problem causing the clanking.
But, without jacking up the car and looking for it, there's no way for a mechanic
to tell what it would be exactly.
My suspicion - a clamp holding down the anti-sway bar has rusted over the
last 10 years and broken - and replacing it could cost as little at $20 at a parts
store, but damage to other components from an un-clamped anti-sway bar could cost
$hundreds and $hundreds. Drive your MPV as little as possible until this suspension
problem is fixed.
But, it could be shocks, Macpherson struts, box-beam section of the Uni-body,
lower ball joint(s), upper ball joint(s), spring(s), spring holder(s), broken anti-sway bar,
lower control arm(s), upper control arm(s), or a loose tail gate or loose bumper.
The car's computer will be useless - they monitor the engine/emissions/fuel systems
closely, but no nothing of suspension system problems.

What are swey bars on a ford focus


A sway bar is a suspension piece that keeps the left and right side of vehicle connected to help with turns. They are held together through sway bar links at each end, which are fairly common to break or rattle over bumps.

Replacing sway bar. cannot get new sway bar to propper position. how do i get it to fit propperly?


Your old sway bar made of tubular steel. New sway bar made from solid steel. You have a frame under engine the sway bar attaches too. This frame also supports your engine and trans mounts. Follow frame and there are 4 bolts securing same. Mechanic I watched supported engine underneath. Loosen back bolts though not removed. (please note sway bar has arrow that bar can only go in one direction) This maybe your problem. Attach bar to frame and fitting's. Best if you raise front end and remove both tires. Good luck

Trying to remove control arm for a pontaic G6 2006


I had same problem with my 2006 G6 GTP 3.9 Engine. The front control arm pivot bolt would come out only so far and then hit the passenger side motor mount. I had to loosen the two (2) motor mount nuts from below, and then raise the engine and trans so that the pivot bolt could be moved forward enough to pull clear from the control arm. The control arm drops down, so that the sway bar does not have to be loosened or removed. Expensive part !! (lower control arm with ball joint), just to replace a failed ball joint. By the way, I have the "official" GM ZP/ G6 service manual, and it mentions Nothing about the motor mount interference problem. But, without clearing for that motor mount, that front bolt cannot be removed. (I don't have any experience with the 4 Cylinder G6 model, so can't help you there.)
