If this has a solid rear axle check the torsion(?) bar on the underside of the axle assembly. The welds have been known to break on them where it mounts to each side.

Why am I hearing a low pinging sound in the rear/left suspension in my 92 Chrysler Lebaron when I turn?

Its probably the shock/ strut.. i never worked on one of them cars but usually you can take rear shock/strut out through back seat or trunk. You have buy or rent special tool to keep the spring compressed when taking the strut apart.

Repair coil spring

Remove all the components, drill out the spot welds for the rusted panels, probably about 100 of them. Get new panels and weld them back in. Very difficult procedure and somewhere in the expert skill level. Suggestion is get another car and turn that one in for scrap metal.

The rear passenger side makes a loud banging noise when i drive over a bump or rough roadway. the noise does not occur on the other side. sounds almost hollow in the quarterpanel area.

Check to see if your strut spring is loose. If there is a lot of rust in the area, check to see that none of the spot welds came free and he strut came loose. It may be a rear shock on that car and not a strut, Either way. Check to make sure nothing is missing a bolt or moves when pushed or pulled. You don't want to find out by losing control on the expressway.

The rear window struts on my 2001 Ford Excursion need to be replaced. How do I do it?

If you look on the ends of the struts you will see little metal clips. Use a small screwdriver to slide them off, the the strut will pull right out.(almost fall out)

Loud noise in rear of car. sounds like a loose 2003 ford taurus

it is quite possible that you have a bad strut mount, noticeable by rubber moving from metal, or a leaking strut, looking at the strut you would see hydraulic fluid on it. also sometimes removal and disassembly is the only way to tell. also you could check for bad sway bar links or bushings. hope this helps

On a 1989 nissan maxima with sonar suspension II how do you disassemble the strut assembly? the mounting bracket for sonar adapters is in the way of the strut center bolt.

First you must remove the rear seat to gain access to the top strut mounts. The bottom of the rear seat comes out first. On the 91 model there are two tabs at the base of the seat bottm that you pull forward to release the seat bottom. I'm not sure if the 89 is the same. After removal of the rear seat bottom, you will see a bolt at the bottom of each side of the rear seat back that need to be removed. Fold down the arm rest and disconnect the vinyl cover at the base of the armrest to expose and remove two screws. Push up on the rear seat back to unhook three plastic hooks (center and one at each end) at the top of the rear seat back. Remove the seat back. Remove the large metal support panel that is behind the seat back. Safely jack up the rear of the car and support on jack stands so the rear wheels hang free. Doing one strut at a time, remove the two top strut mount bolts leaving the center strut stud nut in place. The strut and mount will lower out of the unibody. Disconnect the bottom strut mount. Remove the strut/coil spring assembly. Using a strut/spring compressor (some auto parts stores rent these) compress the spring. Carefully remove the top strut stud retaining nut, top strut mount, bumpers and strut boot. Carefully install compressed spring, strut boot, bumpers and top strut mount on new strut and install washer and retaining nut. Reinstall strut and etc. in reverse order.

Noise driving over rough road worse after new links,struts,shocks

Do not heat or bend any suspension parts. Big no-no. If it's all touching and out of whack, check for possible bent frame. Body-shop that did the past work might have overlooked the frame being bent. All measurements start with a straight frame.Then go after the individual hitch and sway bar.

Not that I know of the only thing I know of is to take it to either a body shop or a welder and have a plate welded into place. How old is the escort, it may not be worth the cost. How is the rest of the car rust wise?

Rear suspension of 1994 Grand Prix bad.

i have owned two 1994 grand prix's and both developed the same problem you are refering to.
i have to agree with the last solution, if the rear is sitting lower, it's time to look at your rear struts. BUT... the GM used a fibreglass monoleaf transverse spring in the rear and the fibre glass spring is suppose to sit on a nylon cushion on both knucles. on both of my vehicles i had the nylon cushion fall or get knocked out. the parts cost about $20.00cdn and can easily be installed without removong the spring. In both cases it solved the sound of metal on metal rubing sound. I also changed the rear struts soon after i replaced the cushions because i noticed they were worn.

hope it helps cheers!
