Rear knocking 2000 impala


A broken sway bar will also manifest itself while driving over an uneven or washboard-like road surface. A clanking or clunking sound will emanate from the front or rear suspension. Broken sway bars will emit knocking and scraping noises over potholes and dips, sometimes rhythmically. This happens when a sway bar bushing joint swings freely without support and strikes the chassis frame or control arm. Hope this helps.

THE FRONT DRIVER'S SIDE SQUEKS VERY LOUD ANY TIME THE VEHICLE GOES OVER A BUMP


get someone to move the suspension thru the noise and "feel" the joints a noise is a vibration and should be felt. an overlooked area is the ball joint type concections to the sway bar. a needle adaptor to yuor grease gun and a couple of squirts should fix. very common on camry, honda crv and the like.

Control arm removal


Take the wheel off, secure strut to lower frame with a strong piece of rope, place a jack under the sway bar, jack up slightly, that will hold the strut from lowering anymore via the link from the sway arm to the strut (reason for the rope securing the strut is it will swing out towards you when the lower control arm is removed), saturate all the bolts with a good penatrating oil [Liquid Wrench = Good Stuff] remove the nut from the lower ball joint stud, spray on more penatrating oil where stud goes through spindle, hit the spindle with a good size hammer where the ball joint stud goes through the spindle (always hit what it goes through), give it several hard sharp raps from the sides, then hit downward on the lower control arm with hammer, most of the time the stud will come right out, if not, put nut back on ball joint stud just until the stud is flush with the top of the nut, since you can not hit directly on the top of stud, get a good sized wrench to go across the stud and hit downward on either side of the wrench, holding other end with your other hand, if the ball joint does not come out now, hit the spindle from the sides some more HARD, then hit downward on control arm, if it still does not come loose you will have to get (or rent) a spreader (Pickle Fork) to separate the ball joint from the spindle, then remove the two bolts from the lower frame, slide lower control arm out.

I have a 2005 Trailblazer. I have had the stalilizer bar replaced, new ball joints, greesed the fittings on the ball joints. New calipers, rotos and branke pade. HOWEVER, I still have a clunking sound...


They are really bad for the lower control arm bushings causing a clunk noise. You can't see movement by checking on a hoist, but lubing them will help only temporarily. I did a lot of them under warranty, but being 2005 I'm sure yours has expired. I' would highly recommend changing them to eliminate the clunk noise.

How do I change my lower contol arm, right side in my 2000 ford focus se?


remove the wheel. then take out the lower ball joint bolt.remove the tie rod from the assembly this makes it easy to swing the assembly back and forth. using a ball joint fork insert it between the the ball joint and lower control arm and wack the end on it till the ball joint separates from the control arm. using a pry bar put it thru the control arm so you can pry down on the control arm to release the ball joint then towards the back of the control arm are 2 nuts remove these and remove the cap that they hold towards the front of the control arm is one more nut remove this one and then pull out the control arm replace in reverse orderonetufshoppe_40.gifonetufshoppe_39.gif

How to replace s500 control arms How much do they cost, and it there an additional ball joint. My mechanic tacked this on. I thing the control arm and ball joing is one unit.


To replace the lower control are you need to unbolt it from the subframe, airmatic strut, sway bar link and from the lower ball joint. The lower ball joint is separate from the lower control arm. The ball joint actually gets pressed into the steering knuckle. Then the lower control arm sits on top of the ball joint and gets bolted down. The lower control arms list price are about $330 each and the ball joints are around $78 each for oem mercedes parts. The total labor for both to be replaced is somewhere between 6-8 flag hours. The thrust arms are also part of the front suspension and those arms are one piece that have a ball joint as part of the arm. The lower control arm usually doesn't need to be replaced unless its damaged since the control arm bushings are available separately and are around $73 each side for the kit.
