98 toyota corolla rattling noise in the front end on bumps


The rattle (noticed at times under hard acceleration) is the cause of gas shock on the upper part of the engine loosing charge, in-turn causing the engine mounts extra stress and thus metal vibrating/rattling together.
The knocking (over bumps, etc. if you have noted that) is caused by worn bushings, most likely worn sway bar end links (you will see the links looking at the undercarriage, on both sides, they are a little steel "bars" with threaded ends on a 90 deg angle held by bushings e.g. example of front sway bar links ).
I noticed these noises coming on (at various times) at about ~140,000km or ~67,000mi and drove the car as it was until ~300,000km when i sold it (as is). Annoying noises.... yes... did I turn up the radio and carry on driving this car, not "fixing" anything (and I mean not a single $ spent on it aside from maintenance) and then sell the car... yes. The choice is yours.

Clicking noise in front end of car when going over bumps


Probably the front struts your sway bar links can cause the same noise if they are failing but you should have heard or felt somthing while turning regardless of bumps if the sway bar links were bad. Like the other people said start with the struts.

Truck making knocking noise in front end driver's side


Sound like metal clanking when going over semi rough road or bumps? Time to check your swaybar end links. Recommend using Moog end links as they are greasable. End links run from $20 ea to $70 each depending on brand. Moogs run about $37each. I would check front and back sway bar end links. Grab a hold of it and try jiggling it around, shouldn't be loose.

Noise from rear of car only while driving, can not duplicate noise by bouncing rear of vechicle,replaced rear struts, replaced sway bar links ,everything from trunk removed, sounds like something loose, ...


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.

I have a 1999 ford taurus se. There is a knocking or cluncking noise that is coming from the front. It does not happen all of the time. Mostly when going over small bumps on the road. Even while driving...


One of the most common would be the sway bar links and or sway bar bushings. The best way of checking them is to keep the wheels at normal riding height don't jack up car use car ramps or aliment rack then grab the sway bar close to the sway bar links push up and down should have NO play. The sway bar bushings you can do the same but there harder to tell. If you look at the clearance between the bar and bushing there should be none. Also if you can get the car to make the noise while pushing down on the front end use car ramps so you can get under the car while someone else pushes. Noises sometimes can be a nightmare so goodluck.

Rear Suspension noise on 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8


Check sway bar. On some models as suspension sags, sway bar outer ends will contact the body, leaving a mark or dent just above the end, causing a bang over bumps. Only way to correct this is to change springs or add a spring lift.
