Question about 2000 Ford F250 Super Duty Crew Cabs

1 Answer

I replaced the sway bar bushings and end link bushings w/ energy suspension components. I have a vibration when turning to the left and an intermitent heavy vibration (like riding on a rough road) that comes and goes? I have replaced my left and right wheel bearings as well. What could this be?

Why does my 2009 gmc Acadia sway at highway speed


Make sure the tire pressures are at the recommended pressure. Check for worn steering/suspension components particularly the front/rear stabilizer links as one or more may be broken.Has the alignment ever been checked rot proper angles?

My 2003 yukon xl has a rear suspension noice every time i go over a bump or so


2003? original shocks,I assume.
Could be a loose shock bolt,loose sway bar bushing or end link bushing
Is the tail pipe touching the frame?
When it cools,wiggle the tail pipe forcefully up and down.
Crawl under there and inspect both rear shock absorber mounts and sway bar bushings and mounting bolts.
if it LOOKS good,have someone bounce the rear of the truck when you are nearby. Hear the noise? left side or right side?

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.

How to replace a sway bar end links to a 94 intrepid



REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

The rear suspension on LH platform vehicles is a fully independent suspension. A stabilizer bar (also called a sway bar) is mounted in rubber isolator bushings and connects the rear struts through links. Note that the fuel tank must be removed to remove the stabilizer bar.

CAUTION OFF. The fuel system pressure must be relieved before disconnecting any fuel lines. Failure to do so may result in fire and/or personal injury.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove both rear wheels.

  1. Position a transmission jack under the fuel tank just forward of the crossmember to help support the fuel tank when crossmember is removed.
  2. Remove the four crossmember to frame rail attaching bolts. Remove the fuel tank.
  3. Remove the stabilizer bar to link assembly attaching nuts and remove the bar and isolator bushings as an assembly from the vehicle. Inspect the isolator bushings for damage or excessive wear and replace, if necessary.

To install:
  1. Inspect for broken or distorted retainers and bushings. If bushing replacement is required, replacement bushings can be installed by locating the split in the bushing, prying open and removing the defective bushing from around the stabilizer bar.
  2. Install the stabilizer bar and isolator bushings back into the vehicle as an assembly making sure bar is centered in vehicle so it doesn't contact other suspension components.
  3. Install stabilizer bar attaching link onto stabilizer bar. Install new link to bar attaching nuts and tighten to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).

Replace the sway bar bracket bolt with new after loosening or removing them. Only use original equipment bolts as replacements.
  1. Install the fuel tank back onto the vehicle.
  2. Position the crossmember on frame rails and install four mounting bolts. Tighten attaching bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  3. Remove transmission jack from under the fuel tank.
  4. Install the rear wheels and lug nuts. Tighten the lug nuts, in a star pattern sequence, to 95-100 ft. lbs. (129-135 Nm).
  5. Lower the vehicle. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  6. Pressurize the fuel system and check for leaks.
  7. Check and reset the rear wheel toe to specifications as required.

2003 Saturn Ion vibration begins at about 60 mph. Tires are good and in balance and show no signs of uneven wear. Had tires rotated as well to see if problem changed, it did not. Had local mechanic put...


Try replacing the end links to the front sway bar. The sway bar end link bushings may be worn and needs to be replaced, buy the sway bar end link kit with the urethane bushing. They last a life time and cost about $45.00 for both sides at Parts Source or Auto Zone and takes you less then 30 min to repalce both sides. Good Luck and keep me posted. Worn bushing to the sway bar, shocks and steering component will cause vibrations out on the highway.

What is the purpose of the swine bar? The bar right by the tire. it has broke in my vehicle.


You mean the sway bar? If so, the sway bar or roll bar, or sometimes called the stabilizer bar. The sway bar has two functions.
  1. To prevent body roll or lean in a turn.
  2. It is used to control the handling of the vehicle and is tuned to your specific vehicle based on many characteristics.
You most definitely need to replace the broken sway bar. A vehicle with a broken sway bar is not a safe vehicle. The handling is not what it should be and this can be dangerous if you have to make a quick maneuver. Replace it, ASAP.

How do i find a diagram showing my front end sway bar bushings?


The sway bar bushings are under the large clamps that hold the bar to the frame. The ends of the sway bar are connected to the struts by the sway bar links. When the links wear out, they clunk--not squeak. The bushings are under the retainer in the pic below.

Back end swaying


check all your bushings back there, one of the bushings could be dry rotted and falling apart. Also check your panhard bar, it's one bar that helps stabilize the rear end.

Another way is to get the back end of the car lifted up but dont lift by the suspension or axel and put it in gear and have a friend look and see what moves/wiggles.

Also check your tranny mounts for dry rott. It's getting to be an old car so these things (rubber bushings) are usually the first to go.

Rattle under car going over bumps


Take a close look at your springs. My 99 Audi A4 had a creaking rattle that happened when I went over a speed bump or dip in the road, and it turned out the bottom of each rear spring was broken. I replaced them and the noise went away.

Another possibility would be the sway bar end links. Since the sway bar is worked pretty hard, the bushings in the end links will wear out eventually. This can cause some clanking. Look behind the wheel hubs - you should see a short bar or bracket attached to the hub at one end, and to a bar at the other end. The bar will go forward or back a short way, and then across the bottom of the car to the other wheel hub. That's your sway bar. The bushings in the end links (the short attachment bars that anchor it to the wheel hub) or in the body brackets (some cars bold the center of the sway bar to the body with a bushing in a bracket) could be deteriorated and allowing the bar to bang around on the body.

Finally, take a look at the suspension itself. Do any of the bushings where various parts meet appear to be cracked, leaking fluid, or gone entirely? There should be no gaps between any suspension pieces at the points where they meet. If there are, you're missing some bushings and may well have found the source of your noise.
