Units potentially affected: 38,681 NHTSA campaign number: 00V359002 Defective part or component: SUSPENSION:INDEPENDENT FRONT CONTROL ARM:LOWER:BALL JOINT
Description: Vehicle Description: Passenger vehicles. The front suspension lower ball joints were not tightened to specifications when they were attached to the lower control arms. If the ball joint attaching nuts are not adequately tightened, they can loosen and ultimately, result in fracture of the ball joint stud. If the ball joint fractures, control of the vehicle could be affected, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the torque on the two ball joint attaching nuts. Vehicles with loose ball joint attaching nuts will either have the fasteners tightened to specification, or if necessary, the ball joints will be replaced.

When going over bumps the ride is very stiff, shocks have been replaced


Based on what you are saying it sounds like you may need nee suspension strut cartridges installed, any front end or tire shop would confirm this for free.

My 2005 nissan altima 2.5 has a very rough ride... I feel every bump and pothole in the front end....I have just over 90k miles.... the only other issue I have had with the car is the crankshaft sensor at...


This rough ride is going to be shocks, and struts. It most likely will not be motor mounts. Price for shocks and struts , with parts and labor only on front could run around 500 bucks, if taken to any where but the dealer. Sense your car is front wheel drive have breaks and steering arms checked at same time. Thanks mike

I own a 03 Jaguar X type 2,5L with 17" wheels. When I hit a bump a certain way I get a banging noise in the right front end. The suspension seems to be OK as far as I can tell. The car only has 24176...


it is possible that the shocky on that side is faulty so a replacement would fix it if that is the fault
rather than being a "frozen "unit
it is more likely a broken unit that is allowing the suspension to bottom out on the bump
Take it to an accredited front suspension shop and have them do a front end check

Montero Sport clunks when I hit a bump


The front[or rear] sway bars have links in them that are rubber mounted,it sounds like one of the sway bar links is broken,or one of the sway bar bushings is missing.Find the sway bar and have a close look at the mounts to see if the problem lies here.

Suspension system 2003 X Type


That all depends on if you have the comfort or the sport suspension. The sport is a bit stiffer, and the comfort is pretty floaty. Now, repair shops will tell you that you need to replace the shocks every 50,000 miles, however they should be good for at least 100,000 miles. But, how to tell. There are 3 items to check- how much "dive" does your front end have when you brake? If it is significant, then you might be due. The opposite is true when accelerating off the line. Finally, push down on the front and back end with your hands, and if it bounces straight up, then you should still be good on your shocks.

If you have rattles from the shocks, either the mounts or the shocks themselves might be bad. You want to replace the shocks in either case.

Note, that replacing the shocks on the X Type is extremely expensive.
