No a sway bar has nothing to do with it. probably have a real bad cv axle joint. look to see if boots on them are torn.then replace with complete reman axle shaft[ about 75 dollars U.S.] a cv joint binding real bad could cause a pull, but so can bad wheel bearings wich would make some popping grinding etc. sounds.

That does not sound like an accurate diagnosis to me. A sway bar controls how much the vehicle lists over during a turn. A popping sound is generally a CV or constant velocity joint going bad. This is a universal type joint on your shaft that goes from your transmission to your wheel. The pulling is generally and a alignment problem which requires that the tie rods be adjusted or replaced if they are sloppy. Pulling can also be a result of seized brake calipers or uneven wear are responding breaks.

What does Bad cv joints noise sounds like?


That definitely sounds like a cv joint issue...the turning part was a dead giveaway. Though it only happens occasionally when turning, you'll see (or in this case hear) it more frequently as they get worse. Best case scenario could be that they need to be greased instead of replaced...best of luck!

A sway bar issue wouldn't make it suddenly pull anyway.
It sounds like what you're seeing is a failed ball joint. THAT will cause the problem you're having, AND it fits the description of what you're looking at.

My mechanic told me that the sway bar was broken on my 1996 hyundai accent. what parts will need to be replaced to fix the problem?


First you should have been in the service bay under the car
& seen what you were told or even paid for
That was mistake #1 both on your part & the repair shops

Second ---why not have it repaied when it was there,or at
least share the whole story with us

No one on this site siad if they even have tools or why there here

How would spomeone know what parts need to be replace
There are 500 different makes & model vehicle out there

What were you told broke related to the sway bar?
We actually know less than you do. you at least were told
something

Symptoms: rattling noise coming from front end of 98 explorer, pulls at the least little bumps, eats up front tires like crazy. Doesn't feel safe driving. What I've been told already: upper and lower...


definitely sounds like a ball joint problem, bushings would not cause it to chew up tires a worn moving mechanical part would such as steering components,wheel bearings,ball joints, and believe it or not shock absorbers

How to change 1998 Plymouth grand Voyager front sway bars


unbolt the sway bar links from the control arms and the two brackets holding it to the frame. make sure if you jack it up jack up the front end. if you jack up one side and not the other and take the sway bar loose it will be loaded and could cause injury if not careful as long as both front tires are off the ground the sway bar will not be loaded and will be safe to deal with

2002 chry. Voyger has front end knocking noise when going over bumps.


Get someone to help you with this: Reach behind the front wheel just rearward of the strut and you'll find a vertical rod that bolts to the strut just below the spring perch and the other end goes to the sway bar. Hold it and get someone to rock the van as hard as they can. There's and astronomically good chance you'll feel a popping in this rod. If you do, you need to replace it. It's called a sway bar link. You'll need 2 of them and the sway bar bushings as well. Spray the nuts on the links down real good with wd40. Hold the back side with a pair of channel locks to keep the ball joints in them from turning. I take the top nuts off first, then the sway bar bushings so I can move that thing around to gain access to the bottom nuts. Then put them back in reverse order. Remember this, if you do it, no matter what anyone tells you, DO NOT lubricate the sway bar bushings. After the first rain, they'll start squeaking and they'll NEVER stop. They are supposed to go on dry.

Front Left Sway Bar Link


The front stabilizer shaft (sometimes called a sway bar) is mounted to the top rear of the frame and to the lower control arm. The shaft is attached to the frame with clamps and rubber insulators and to the control arms with insulator links.
