The bushings from the Panhard bar are gone and those from the links holding the rear axle on one side are not far behind - all the bushings from the rear suspension must be changed, even those that still look ok.

    The clutch was replaced less than 500 mi ago would this have anything to do with the problem. the car has 27,000 miles on it is it common for bushings to wear out so soon

    The clutch is at the other end of the car, no connection whatsoever with this problem.

    No, the bushings should have lasted more, their average life is at least 5 years. But if those 27,000 miles were run hard or you live in a very hot zone the bushings would have worn out faster. Or, because it's a Saleen, designed for speed and handling, the bushings might be made out of polyurethane and there worn out faster.

    while looking at the rear end suspension bushings i found that the right side axle bearing had a lot of play the left side is good no play. It would make sense that this might also be the problem. 400+ hp
    can apply a whole lot more pressure on the bearing than I can.

  • Azrael SRL Jul 09, 2010

    The bearing and not the bushings ? I would have never thought of that, it must have been a defective part from the start, a good quality bearing properly maintained should last at least 100k km.

    Replace both, if one has failed so badly so fast the other is no longer to be trusted.

My 2002 ford explorer jerks when i get up to about fifty mph and let off the gas. I put all new bearings in the rear end thinking the rear end was the problem but it still does it.I put it in four high and...

There is a problem in the shifting of the gear box. Probably a faulty in the over drive servo that is not shifting until the throttle position has changed.. Run fault codes and look for servo/sensor faults and next have an oil change done on the gear box. The rear end has nothing to do with gear shifting so you replaced the rear end bearings for no advantage.

06 titan truck won't accelerate even when the gas

If the engine RPM's increase when the gas pedal is floored, you have a transmission problem or a problem with your shift cables.

If the engine RPM's don't change when the gas pedal is floored, you have a throttle pedal cable problem or throttle body problem.

You will need an experienced mechanic to diagnose this problem as it is very dangerous to operate the vehicle under these conditions.

Rear end slipping?

Differentials are direct-drive devices -- they cannot slip.

This really sounds like erratic shifting taking place right at the shift point. Gentle acceleration is the trickiest shift for an automatic. When accelerating harder, the transmission shifts more abruptly, which is a much easier shift to complete.

Shift knob

It should just screw off. My 2002 Saleen had a universal MOMO shifter than damaged the threads of the shifter, I hope thats not how yours is.
