Question about 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Rear passenger side wheel facing inward

It was shaking because of a bar that had broken on the car which was connected to the frame and the suspension. i continued to drive it like that until recently it was shaking harder than ever, as i backed the car up to park it the rear wheel tured inward. i 'm trying to find the name of this bar. it kinda looks like a bed rail.

My back tire is trun inward how do i fix it


Hi Chanise.

Short of you happening to own one of the old 4-Wheel Steering Hondas, rear wheels should not turn inward. A couple of intermediate scenarios:
  1. It's possible that there's a little bit of inward turn if the wheel lug nuts have been loosened a lot, or even removed completely. Are all the nuts on the wheel and tight? If they are loose or gone, this can be pretty dangerous. At best you'd get a jack under the car, hopefully augmented with a jack stand, so that you can jack up the wheel until it's off the ground. Then you carefully re-tighten the bolts, checking that the threads are OK, that the studs aren't bent, and that the wheel looks square once the bolts are tight.
  2. If you've had a significant failure in your suspension, such as a blown shock or strut, a broken spring, a disconnected/broken wishbone if the suspension is that type, or a broken/disconnected sway bar, then the rear suspension could be in a wonky position relative to the car. This would need to be checked by someone who knows suspensions and has the gear to deal with it. A lot of that would require a lift and large specialty tools, but the good news would be that with re-connected or repaired parts, you'd hopefully be good to go.

Other than that, if the rear wheel on your car is turning inward, and it's beyond something like a flat tire with the walls veering off from how the car is sitting, this isn't something you fix at home. This means that a major part of your suspension has been bent, probably including areas of the frame. That's major body shop work.

I hope this frames options for you. If you do end up having loose or missing wheel lugs, be careful, make sure they are properly tightened this time, and keep an eye on your car. Lugs can sometimes work loose when not torqued enough, but all of them happening to be loose without you noticing the rear of the car going 'whompety whompety whomp' while driving? Hard to imagine. It'd mean that someone loosened them deliberately, and you'd want to make sure they don't try it again after you fix it (locking wheel lugs would be a good investment at that point).

Cheers

I'm hoping I can replace & take care of it myself on my '02 Monte Carlo 3400.. Not sure which bar it is, but it's front driver's side, bar is broken off that looks like it should be attached to th


Front sway bar link, or tir rod end. The tie rod end moves the tire with the steering wheel.
The sway bar link helps keep the car stable around corners. And is normally a long bolt with washers and bushings running threw a long bar that connects the passenger side to driver side.

The bar in the front that looks loke a handle bar and has bushings what is it


If the bar goes from side to side it is called a sway bar. If it goes from one side to alittle past center it is called the stabilizer bar.

When driving down the road and turning left my vehicle rocks back and forth almost violently why is that?


I am going to use a Crown Vic as an example because we do not know what type of vehicle you have. On the Crown Vic there are rear stabilizer bars(sway bars) which go from one side of the body to the other. On each side there is a bolt with many rubber bushings which are meant to prevent the car body from shaking and rolling in turns.

Looking from the back of your car you will see the bar hanging down before the rear axle. One side, if not both sides have broken bolts. They are called suspension links and they are readily available at autoparts stores. You also have similar sway bars in the front. The front set bolts to the frame in a different type of mount.

You can have bad shocks or struts, moreso on one side as you indicate the problem is with left turns. On the extreme condition, a balljoint or tierod end can cause sloppyness in the body on turns.

There are some differences with rear suspension on front wheel drive cars and AWD vehicles. But is you see a bar underneath your vehicle just check out if it is still attached. I hope you found my solution very helpful and would be interested in your outcome.

We have replaced the bearing, the shock, two tires and wheel kits on the left passenger side and we still do not know what is making a clunking sound. please help! We have literally taken everything off...
