These are important for handling concerns and can make noise if totally worn out. These should be very easy to replace and if you are handy with tools you should be able to get it done. If you need I can send you a diagram. Parts are less than $15.

Struts noise?


I would tend to believe it's more likely a worn sway bar bushing or link if it's a rattle or a small clunk, if it's a loud clunk probably a strut, try bouncing he back of the car when parked, if you get the clunk probably a strut if only when driving,turning,braking probably just a bushing on the sway bar

2002 Chevy Trail Blazer. Loud pop sometimes in rear when turning. Noticed sway bar is loose, bushings worn out . Could that make the pop noise or is problem possibl worse?


sway bar bushing could be problem. I would replace it before trying anything else and yes that will cause it to pop from time to time. In some cases if not replaced in time the bar itself could break

I have a 2005 camry with 260,000 km. I brought my car into the dealer for a routine maintenance asking them to check out a front end rattling when i go over large bumps. I was told that the control arms...


First,as you travel over a rough road that causes the rattle apply the brakes slightly,is the rattle gone now?If so it's loosely mounted brake pads and/or worn brake caliper mounting bolts/sliders.
Rattle still there with your foot on the brake?Then it's usually the sway bar links and/or sway bar bushings.
To check this sway bar noise,disconnect the sway bar links and tie the bar up/out of the way and try that same road.
No noise now? address sway bar bushings and/or links.
Still noise?Might be struts.
If someone tells you,.you have loose lower control arm bushings,have them show you the play in the bushings before you spend any $$$.

Cheap and easy fix, just replace the rubber bushings under the back where the sway bar is held to the chassis. The rubber gets worn and hard and allows the bar to rattle when going over bumps.

Clunk noise - right front wheel while going over slight bumps


It could be the sway bar bushing, sway bar end link bushings, or the strut mount bushing worn and needs to be replaced. Check with your local dealership to see if it's still under warranty or any recall issues with this problem. If your past the warrant, Auto Zone will have the parts and can give your the step by step instructions to have the bushing replaced with common tools. Good luck and hope this helps.

Rear Sway bar bushings


These are not very hard to do but the nuts are usually rusted and you may need a torch. All you do is jack up the rear end of the car to release pressure on the sway bar. Then remove the nuts on the sway bar bushing bolts. Remove the assembly and put in the new ones in reverse order. Should take a couple of hours.

Steering is loose


There could be a few issues you may be dealing with, one is you could possibly have worn out lower control arm bushings, or the sway bar links could be bad, may als be a very badly worn wheel bearing. Any of these issues should be addressed as soon as possible, recommend having it looked at by a repair shop. Hope this helps
