SOURCE: creeking noise from drivers side rear suspension

that small arm should be strait its the only way it has any strength. with it being bent it is putting a load on the suppension and that is where your noise is comming from. if you take it in to get the allignment checked it will show up there. just install a new arm and the sup shoud return to its normal position and wont need an allignment.
hope this helps

Generally the bushings aren't too expensive (likely about 25-30 each...But, unless you have done this kind of work, driving the bushings out and installing them can be difficult without a press. I've done many in-shop and its nothing like the ones I've done at remote locations using a hammer and chisels etc. You can do this yourself but I'd opt to do the r&r at home and have a machine shop do the actual bushing pressing. If you damage the arm ends you will need to replace the arm or do a bunch of bending to get the bushings back in place.
If you do have a press, than go at it!!

That control arm is technically un-servicable and by the end of the day after finding something,then trying to wrestle these in where they work properly,probably the best, easiest and cheapest in the end is to replace the control arm.

Testimonial: "Thanks Jeff. I bought two control arms online and my mechanic installed them for me. He was surprised that they were not serviceable."

Can up country shocks be used on a non-up country suspension. Worried about the travel and collapsed measurements. Not enough travel or too little?


doubtful the shocks would be the source of any creaking/squeaks. Most creaking and squeak noises are usually a result of worn/dry bushings. I would inspect all swaybar/control arm bushings for dryness and deteriation. Spraying wd40 on all rubber bushings in the rear may cause the noise to subside for a while until you are able to isolate the exactr source

52 plate BMW 320td compact front wheels wande on rough suface or ruts up to 40mph after that ok tracking done, suspension arms done can it be hard pofile michelin tyres. Also fuel consumption not good...


You say the suspension arms were done. Does that mean that you replaced the front control arms and got both new ball joints and a new control arm bushing on each side?
I presume that they checked for excessive play in the bearings at the tops of the struts while they had the control arms off?
Are we talking about following rain grooves cut in the pavement, or about following seams and traffic grooves? Following rain grooves is a trait of the tires. Following major seams and grooves is usually control arm bushings. If it is still unacceptable with new rubber bushings, you may want to try polyurethane control arm bushings. Poly bushings are getting popular among BMW owners for exactly this reason.
BMW uses firm control arm bushings on M3s, but very soft control arm bushings on everything else, even when they install optional 'sport' suspension.

The front of the car squeeks when you push up and down and makes the same noise when you turn the steering wheel either way.


If your car is about 10 years or older chances are that the front rubber suspension components are worn and rubbing agaings their housing. There are at least 4 areas for each front tire that could be worn: Strut housing, control arm bushings, center control arm bushings, or stabilizer bar bushings. There are ball joints that can wear too, but usually do not make noises at a standstill. My suggestion is to go to any tire store and have them look put the car up on a rack for a thorough inspection. Most people let these parts go for too long and the cost gets high to replace. You obviously are very careful with your car so this should be a routine suspension fix for the garage. Good luck.

Excessive play in the steering wheel, car is all over the road. What could this be?


The steering gear box is worn out. And, there's probably worn front suspension components adding to the problem. You will need to check the following parts for looseness or movement: Idler Arm, Upper and Lower Ball Joints, Control Arm Bushings, Pitman Arm, Inner and Outer Tie Rod Ends, Front Hub Bearings. All of these can be replaced in your driveway with the exception of the Control Arm Bushings which are pressed in and require special tools to remove and install the bushings. If you can't replace all of them, concentrate your efforts on the following: Steering Box, Idler arm, and Control Arm Bushings. If you can afford to have all of them done, the front suspension would be factory fresh and should, with proper wheel alignment, drive like a new car.

Top suspension arm bushes worn on my 1996 Lexus LS400


If you can find replacement bushings, take the control arm to a machine shop and have them replaced. The bushings are pressed in and you would spend the entire weekend trying to get them out by hand.

Nissan Suspension noise


sounds to me like your front control arm bushings are broken. have your mechanic check the bushings in rear of the control arm. the ones that are right by the 3 bolts in the control arm in rear. those bushings brake and cause play in the whole assembly, causing a rattle. Its a black round bushing about 2 inches in diamater. its most likely all separated. common problem. Have him look at your stabilizer bar links also.
