Question about 2009 Chevrolet HHR

1 Answer

I have a 2009 HHR LT wagon 2.4 FE3 Suspension with Bad front end banging noise both side Have replace front Struts,Upper right/left sway bars, replaced Lower left/right control arms without any luck.

Disconnected both upper/lower sway bars from longer horizontal sway bar which is mounted to the chasis horizontally to try to isolate problem. This helped the driver side banging but didn't help with the passenger side banging. The vehicle has never been wrecked. I have missed something somewhere apparently. Can just the 2 bushings on the Horizontal Control Arm which is mounted to Chasis that connect to sway bars be replaced. They look OK BUT Looks can be deceiving.

The front suspension needs a lot of work. There is a lot of noises coming from the front end. My understanding is that this is common for a cobalt.


brakes and rotors will not cause noise unless they are badly worn and this will be evident on inspection
most noise will be from rubber suspension bushes and sway bar and shocky rubbers
I would suggest that you get quotes from suspension accredited shops and have each shop show you what is worn and what is ok
ON good roads ( hard surface) suspension units should last 60.000 miles before requiring repairs ( barring road damage)

Several things can cause front end noise. Worn control arm bushings, worn or broken sway bar end links, and one of the most common can be worn struts.

I have a 2006 infiniti g35x I notice the car is making a thumping noise in the front end and is more noticeable at lower speeds it does not necessarily get worse with breaking but does not change seems to...


It's the anti-sway bar endlinks. My '06 g35x has the same symptoms - clunking at low speeds, varying from which side of the car the noise comes from as to which side of the car is hitting bumps in the road surface. EASY to replace yourself with the front end on jack stand, and you don't even need to remove the underbody plastic panel, so it's quicker than an oil change. To verify this is the problem before you order the parts (which are about $100 for the x, as it's a different part altogether than the endlinks on the RWD sedans or coupes, so be careful when ordering), just remove the current endlinks and take a test drive - don't worry about removing the whole sway bar, just the links at the ends of the bar). If this is the case, you will not hear the clunking any more. I do not recommend driving like this for any distance, as the car will become tail happy and your sway bar ends could point towards the ground while left unsupported and become damaged.

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.

Loud banging noise when i go over a bump on passenger side front and a clicking when i pull into a parking spot or three point turn both left and right took it to dealership say they cant find anything


The clicking is the halfshafts or front wheel drive axles. I have a hard time believing that they have went bad already but anything is possible. The banging noise is something in the suspension, perhaps struts or a sway bar link.

Rear Suspension noise on 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8


Check sway bar. On some models as suspension sags, sway bar outer ends will contact the body, leaving a mark or dent just above the end, causing a bang over bumps. Only way to correct this is to change springs or add a spring lift.

Right front suspension loose / crashing noise


Would recommend having the front struts and strut mounts looked at, over time the struts and strut mounts wear out, causing the front supension to develop noise whe going over even the slightest of road deformities. Hope this helps
