Question about 2005 Chevrolet Aveo

2 Answers

My rear axle bushing is gone. I think it is the sway bar bushing. My mechanic says that Chevy only stocks the whole axle, and it will cost $500 for the whole axle. This is stupid. Can somebody find the correctly sized bushing for this car?

    No. The bearing is fine as far as I know. The plastic bushing is broken.

How to change rear sway bar bushing chevy 2005 malibu


The sway bar bushings are easily replaceable ....remove the 2 bolts that hold the mount and remove the old/damaged bushing.....slip the new one over the sway bar and replace the bracket....done.
I would replace both while I was under the car....here is a picture for reference....

Rear end body sways back and forth on my 2002 jeep grand cherokee


check the track bar bushings for play in them, also check to make sure that the sway bar links are not broken, also if the rear axle has leaf springs for suspension it then could be the rear shackle bushings.

Install rear sway bar


a sway bar is usually u shaped and hooks to the body and the tops of the u hook to the axle with links that have bushings. most jeeps dont have a rear sway bar.the panhard bar is the rod that goes from one side of the axle to the body on the opposite side. its sometimes mistakenly called sway bar. it keeps the body from moving side to side around corners. then there are the torque bars they keep the axle from trying to rotate when accelerating.
none of this would be real expensive but if its been lifted a bunch then you may have problems

A client is complaining of a loud and felt thumping noise from the rear axle area. They are thinking rear struts. 92. 500SEL with auto leveling, ADR option unknown, VIN WDBGA51E7NA035055


first I would check your sway bar links in the rear to make sure they are not broken. If the suspension is stiff it is probably your ads accumulaters( I believe it was standard on the 500 model). Also check your fluid level to make sure you have proper fluid in the reservoir in the engine compartment and that your pump is working properly( it is a tandem pump which is also your power steering pump. There is also an adjustment on the sway bar that is adjusted by moving the arm that attaches the valve to the sway bar on the right side of the rear sway bar.

Rear suspension


the best thing to do is bring it to a local shop
i dont know what it is like where you are but at my shop it doesnt cost anything to see what a problem is. anything is usually replaceable and if it is a bushing in the suspension it is probably a trailing arm or a lateral link "i think that is the real part name" they are not expensive. phone a couple of garages and ask them if there is a cost to find the problem

Various Issues - Hub, Brakes, Sway Bar Etc. Etc.


you need to get another estimate from an honest private shop. These #s sound very high. I have never seen even a mercedes therm cost $198...is it the gold & platinum one you can wear as jewlery after you are done with it in the car? If I have time later, I'm going to look up parts prices and post them. Also if front axle seals are warranty, why not rears?
