    I was watching when hetyu installed them. Im looing at the picture of Moroe parts and they come with two bushings in the chart. But I noticed they installed only one then the washers around that one bushing. could they maybe have forgoten to install the second bushing and could this be causing the clicking.

Improper installation, but most likely the noise you are hearing is a result of wear that happened before you had the shocks installed and the noise just became apparent when teh suspension was repaired.

    In short yes, Improperly installed. Take it back and show them what they did wrong and tell them what is happening and make them repair any other damage that was a result of the improper installation. This includes putting a new set of shocks on the vehicle. If they failed to properly install the bushing the shocks mounts and shocks themselves are most likely damaged by that.

The left rear suspension is like a buckboard when travelling over even a modest bump or dip in the road. It hits hard.


check the springs and the shock absorber, your shock will almost certainly need replacing, servicing if you are lucky and it is the
serviceable type.

Can a shock mounting make a squeak noise when going through a dip or turning the steering wheel. shocks already tested.


There are a lot of suspension points that can develop a squeak. Look at there: Front strut tower mounts, sway bar rubber mounts(if equipped). If you recently got new tires that may be a little larger than the originals, the tire may hit suspension parts when turning. They can rub against the inner fender well plastic parts as well. Best thing to do first is get a chassis lube. If that fails to resolve the problem, then look deeper into the problem by a good mechanic.

CHECK WHETHER YOU HAVE A BROKEN SHOCK ABSORBER OR ANY SUSPENSION BUSH. AS YOU HAVE A SQUEAK AT THE BACK LEFT SIDE GO TO THE SHOCKER AT THAT SIDE AND DO THE INSPECTION FIRST,

Loud noise


Check your exhaust and rear suspension for something loose or broken. Problem could be the exhaust, a hanger or cracked pipe. In the suspension it could be shocks, worn bushings, track arms etc. When a problem like this happens you have to get under the car and grab and try to move things checking for loosness. In general try to see what is loose enough that a bump causes it to rattle or bang. Other than inspecting the rear area there is no short cut that can be taken to solve the problem. You don't want to just start replacing parts hoping to fix the problem, that can be expxnsive and unnecessary. Good Luck!!!

I need to know if you have any type of air suspension. If you have a air compressed shock system then I would say the whoo whoo sound is coming from a leak or problem in the air pressure regulation system. That could cause the sides to move up and down and loose your grip also. Have your suspension checked and have your breaks checked also.
