Got a rattle on the front of my pont g8 gt changed the sway bar link's so thats not it what else could iy be


I would check the lower control arms/ball joints and strut bushings. Both are a known common issues and many cars had the lower control arms and strut bushings replaced under warranty. It is suspected the strut bushing failures were caused by the suspension being compressed for shipping from down under. There are improved 3rd party aftermarket parts available. The strut bushings may not exhibit any free play on a lift. Check google and youtube for more info on how to diagnose each.

I have a 2005 camry with 260,000 km. I brought my car into the dealer for a routine maintenance asking them to check out a front end rattling when i go over large bumps. I was told that the control arms...


First,as you travel over a rough road that causes the rattle apply the brakes slightly,is the rattle gone now?If so it's loosely mounted brake pads and/or worn brake caliper mounting bolts/sliders.
Rattle still there with your foot on the brake?Then it's usually the sway bar links and/or sway bar bushings.
To check this sway bar noise,disconnect the sway bar links and tie the bar up/out of the way and try that same road.
No noise now? address sway bar bushings and/or links.
Still noise?Might be struts.
If someone tells you,.you have loose lower control arm bushings,have them show you the play in the bushings before you spend any $$$.

Rattle on front end - especially when hit bumps. Is this struts? How dangerous is the problem?


A rattle in the front end is a pretty vague description. This could be caused by struts, loose mounts, loose wheels, engine mounts or almost anything else but may I suggest you check the sway bar bushes located at the end of the sway bar, this is the most common cause of rattles in these vehicles. I also suggest you check every other bolt you can see in the front end, then look for more and check those too. Every rattle has potential to be dangerous, especially suspension faults, I suggest that you take your car to a competent mechanic as anything you touch in relation to suspension could kill you or someone else, I have seen it happen. I hope this helps and good luck.

RATTLING NOISE ON THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONT TIRE


The first thing to check on a rattling noise is if going over minor bumps in the road if that is when it makes noise is a sway bar link, they make a rattling noise. If you raise that wheel up you might also want to try and wobble the wheel to be sure it is not a tie rod end or ball joint. Typically I run into the sway bar links or the sway bar bushings making the noise. However ive even seen it be a rock sitting on the strut plate.
