Grinding or creaking in 2008 ford fusion front end


Mr.Mangus have you checked at all your front suspension struts,shock absorbers,or lower wishbones with bushing and ball joints? I had recently a diesel ford focus 2007 with similar case and both front wishbones were replaced due to ball joints and bushes and then sent for steering alignment. Vehicle drive excellent. Please check.

52 plate BMW 320td compact front wheels wande on rough suface or ruts up to 40mph after that ok tracking done, suspension arms done can it be hard pofile michelin tyres. Also fuel consumption not good...


You say the suspension arms were done. Does that mean that you replaced the front control arms and got both new ball joints and a new control arm bushing on each side?
I presume that they checked for excessive play in the bearings at the tops of the struts while they had the control arms off?
Are we talking about following rain grooves cut in the pavement, or about following seams and traffic grooves? Following rain grooves is a trait of the tires. Following major seams and grooves is usually control arm bushings. If it is still unacceptable with new rubber bushings, you may want to try polyurethane control arm bushings. Poly bushings are getting popular among BMW owners for exactly this reason.
BMW uses firm control arm bushings on M3s, but very soft control arm bushings on everything else, even when they install optional 'sport' suspension.

Squeaking front suspension what is it?


balljoints squeak when they dry out, and bushes can squeak when perished. Most likely mounting bushes on the front struts near the bottom or the wishbone bushes and balljoints.

A tyre depot should be able to track the culprit down using a bar for leverage with the car on a lift ramp.

When the car is stationary. Push down on the back (Boot or TRunk) as hard as you can a few times & listen for the squeek. It's more common in the rear suspension from my experience. It sounds like the bushings are gone or worn at the top of the suspension struts.
That's if it does squeek. You might not need your suspension replaced just the bushings as they are normally plastic.
Try doing the same by pushing down at the front of the car also as it maybe happening there too.

they are pressed in, Jaguar uses a special tool which fits over the bushing and you have to use a press to remove them, sometimes they are so tight they need to be burped out with an air hammer.
Not a job I would tackle myself as you need to strip down the suspension to get the arm off for replacement.

Banging noise from rear of bmw 316 e36


It could be your subframe as well big problem with E36's. Also you can check your Rear Shock Mounts in the trunk by removing the carpet, they are under the speakers. Also check your brake pads, the little shim could have fallen off causing your brake pad to rattle over bumps. And check all your heat shields.
