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.

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.

Hi I own a peugeot 206 gti 180. It has recently


Check the drop link and sway bar (anti roll bar) bushes also the knock could be in the strut top or the strut itself, maybe disconnect the drop link to the sway bar and drive over a pothole and see if the knock is still there.

While driving over small bumps I hear a faint


there are many possibilties. Sway bar, sway busings, shock, tire, something in the brake pad, wheel bearing, the list goes on and on. Best bet is to let someone qualified to take a look and determin what's wrong before hundereds of dollars are spent without the cause being fixed.

2002 chry. Voyger has front end knocking noise when going over bumps.


Get someone to help you with this: Reach behind the front wheel just rearward of the strut and you'll find a vertical rod that bolts to the strut just below the spring perch and the other end goes to the sway bar. Hold it and get someone to rock the van as hard as they can. There's and astronomically good chance you'll feel a popping in this rod. If you do, you need to replace it. It's called a sway bar link. You'll need 2 of them and the sway bar bushings as well. Spray the nuts on the links down real good with wd40. Hold the back side with a pair of channel locks to keep the ball joints in them from turning. I take the top nuts off first, then the sway bar bushings so I can move that thing around to gain access to the bottom nuts. Then put them back in reverse order. Remember this, if you do it, no matter what anyone tells you, DO NOT lubricate the sway bar bushings. After the first rain, they'll start squeaking and they'll NEVER stop. They are supposed to go on dry.

Knock on left front suspension over bumps and rough roads


Have the sway-bar end-links replaced. They will thunk and rattle over washboard or severe bumps, but will not when wheels are turned and sway-bar is loaded.Fairly cheap and easy repair, no alignment needed.
