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.

How do you replace sway bars on a 1995 olds 88 royale?


you will need to disconnect the sway bar from the sway bar links(in most cases you might as well replace the links as well since they may snap while trying to remove them). You will then remove the sway bar bushing caps 2 bolts on each of the 2 caps and lower the sway bar. Is the bar cracked? should not require replacing if it isn't cracked. the rubber bushings and links do wear over time and yes the bar can crack.

Safety says i need sway bar bushings.what and where are these?


the sway bar is a bar that runs acrossed the front of the van from strut to strut. It is bolted to the cradel and then has links that run from the bar to the strut to increase stability. The sway bar bushings are rubber mounts that hold the bar down to the cradel. The bar runs though the mounts one each side where the bar and the cradel meet. If they are wore out you will normally hear a clucking noise from the front end when you hit bumps. To remove and replace them there is two bolts that hold a steel cap on top of them on each side. Remove the cap from both sides then the rubber mounts will have a split in them so you can get them off the bar. To install them is just the reverse of the removal. Good luck! 4 thumbs up is appeciated if 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.

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.

Front sway bar link kit, what is the order of installation. all my bushings are rotted away.


Remove the sway bar links from lower control arms. Replace the sway bar mount to frame bushings first. Then install sway bar link bushings. Note how they come apart and install in the same manner.

Check the sway bar bushings on the frame and the sway bar end links, it's common for the sway bar bushings on the frame to go bad and the sway bar end links bushings to go bad. You can buy the urethane bushings at Auto Zone or Parts Source for around $35.00 for both sides.Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know your got your car running 100% again soon.

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.

How do i find a diagram showing my front end sway bar bushings?


The sway bar bushings are under the large clamps that hold the bar to the frame. The ends of the sway bar are connected to the struts by the sway bar links. When the links wear out, they clunk--not squeak. The bushings are under the retainer in the pic below.
