How to replace front anti roll bar bushes


Frank, you haven't said what make or model your car is.
However, have a look on the following link - it will take you to Youtube:
how to replace anti roll bar bushes Google Search

It's not a particularly difficult job. It entails loosening the drop-links/tie bars that connect to the torsion bar - the anti roll bar, then loosening the bolts holding the anti roll bar in place.

Just be aware that the anti roll bar is in effect a 'spring' and is under tension. Loosen the retaining bolts gradually, slowly.

replacing the bushes is straight forward. Once you have removed the anti roll bar just lever the old rubber bushes out with a screwdriver and push the new ones into place .. then reassemble everything.

In the most general of terms you would do the job in a couple of hours

I have replaced my back shocks on 2004 maxima now something is rattling in the rear end can't figure it out wasn't doing it until I repaced those shocks.


Hi Yameekia, Chock the front wheels, loosen the wheels, jack up the rear end and place chassis stands under the vehicle and then remove wheels. You will see a torsion bar connecting the left and right suspensions. The bar is sometimes referred to as an anti roll bar or a stabilizer bar. It is attached to the body with saddle clamps with rubber bushings, replace both bushes. At either end you will see that the anti roll bar is attached to the suspension by flexible linkages. These are small rods with small ball joints at each end. When worn these same ball joints make a lot of noise, hammering out a drum roll with each bump in the road. Replace those and I believe your problems will be over. You mentioned replacing the rear shocks....what about the front? Did you know that the shocks are not there to give a comfortable ride but instead to hold the tyres in contact with the road surface. They are a safety requirement for road holding, so with that in mind, have a good look at those too! Regards John

X-type 3000 awd rear end feels unstable on a right hander


Sounds as though you changed to none factory springs,and the spring rate changed.
Put the old springs back.
You have components that don't work together or weren't designed for your vehicle

Banging noise from rear of bmw 316 e36


It could be your subframe as well big problem with E36's. Also you can check your Rear Shock Mounts in the trunk by removing the carpet, they are under the speakers. Also check your brake pads, the little shim could have fallen off causing your brake pad to rattle over bumps. And check all your heat shields.
