Symptoms of worn rear shock absorber


To test if your shocks are worn, go to each corner of your vehicle, put two hands on the car, and now pump the corner down hard a few times rapidly, trying to get it to bounce, than quickly let go!, If the car only bounces one or two or three times and stops, they are fine, If any one corner bounces more than two or three times and keeps on bouncing like 5 or 6 times, it's a worn shock. Worn shocks can make it feel like your driving a big ol' loose boat across the road, even in a small vehicle with movement both side to side and up and down, so can worn or loose body bushings, worn suspension parts, under-inflated or broken in or worn out and softened tires. If your ride height seems low it could be worn springs, Shocks are cheap and easy to change, especially the rears. Springs aren't cheap and can be a pain to change on some front ends. Good luck!

Ford ka creaking on drivers side when driving over bumps in road or turning


Is this a suspension creak, or a door creak?

Components which you haven't had changed are:

bottom suspension arms
Anti roll bar links

Also lubricate your door lock mechanism, hinges and window rubbers as these can cause creaks from time to time.

Creaking 2001 isuzu rodeo


our first creaking ever.
love that.( its haunted? LOL)


nobody can fix a car, if you can't demo it
not heard, can't fix it if it is not broken, rings true here.
when you do that, they are forced to guess, at your expense.
its an Implied GUE$$

first off you need to find out when it happens. exactly
first. (bounce car hard parked)?
only turning, only at bumps, when?
only moving, I guess
it can creak and be AOK,
for example the front stabilizer bar is mounted in rubber mounts
and will creak. and be ok. (so spray them)

why not buy a can of SILICON spray ,and spray
all things under car that moves,
all things, not the drive shafts.
there are swing arms, Arms, and many things to make noises in the the whole suspension systems.
it could be tie rods failing (bad that)spray them.
if have weeks to find it spray 1 at a time>? tedious.
any suspension shop in town knows what to do.
find one.
a real shop can use his electronic 4 channel stethoscope
and drive it and find it. but must FAIL for HIM.

see?

Metal clunking sound from rear suspension challenger r/t 2010


Sorry dude, it is hard enough trying to keep up with all of the clunks and bumps and squeaks and rattles that occur on vehicles with factory suspension parts. When modifications are made...it is anybody's guess.

All I can tell you is to diagnose the problem the way any auto technician would diagnose any other suspension noise...get it on a lift and perform a thorough inspection and/or have someone bounce the car up and down while you stick your head under it and see if you can tell where the noise is coming from.

Impala rear suspension problem


Could one shock be bad? Causing a difference in bounce return rate? I would crawl under suspended car and check all suspension bolts. Are your bushings in good shape? If one is chewed up or missing then this would cause that misalignement. What kind of suspension do you have? Solid axle or independent susp? I don't know if your car is front or rear wheel drive. I'm guessing front wheel drive.

My 1995 continental has severe ride problems bounces on every bump in the road front end sits low and rear seems normal


Sounds like the front "air ride suspension" is out.
That works off rubber bags built into the springs. If one or both has developed a leak/hile, it lets the front end (or rear or both) drop to ride on the bottom of the suspension.
Get the wallet out. It's expensive.
Sorry :-(
