You can check them yourself by asking a couple of hefty lads to push down on the front(one side at a time)and then letting go quick.it should go up, then down, then settle,no other movement,unless faulty.(dampers)AND while they are bouncing your car around you can look for the noise,easy???(good fun though eh...)NO they do not have to sit on it.......just push down.....

It sounds like it is coming from the passsenger front wheel : bump bump bump going down the road and sometimes as if the front brake is coming lose ( not the case) 2005 4x4 ford escape is it possible just...


This sounds to me like a broken strut more than anything. As far as i know you can not remove the front differental, because this is the main drive. The rear wheels are only drivin while in four wheel drive. I would sugest to take your car to a mechanic shop and have them "shake down the front end" for any loose parts. A ball joint can also cause a noise as well as a strut mount or strut.

This sounds like a bad strut, one or both on the front has gone bad. Here is a picture of just the strut with out the spring. The price ranges from $65.00 to $220.00 depends on what you can afford. mcneb_0.jpg

Hi, I have a lot of bumping noise when i drive on


The bushings to the front suspension are completely worn out. They must be replaced before the shock damage your other suspension parts.

When i hit a bump in the road with my chrysler pacifica it sounds like the passenger side wheel is goin to fall off.


Check the lug nuts..
Could be a bad front end bushing or could be a bad ball joint.
Check for re-calls too..
Jack up the front end (be safe) leaving the pssngr tire hanging free.. Move tire left to right.. You should find out what is going on..

A popping noise when I hit a bump or hit the brakes


Sounds like you need new front struts since it sounds like it is coming from under your or towards the center of the car it most likely is either the driverside front strut or strut housing. I would take it to a certified safety mechanic asap. It might just be worn struts but it could be alot worse then that. Better safe then sorry.

I have a terrible sqeaking noise coming front of my 1999 crown vi


Sounds like the front shocks/struts are too weak to support the vehicle. Stand at drivers front of vehicle and push down very hard watch as vehicle rebounds and bounces until it settles, then try the same on passenger side. Good shocks/struts allow a bounce or so, but will appear firm not loose.keep me posted to your results.
