Usually you can tell that they are bad when, There is oil coming out of them or they are soft and or making noise. The back shock I believe you can change them your self and the front ones are little bite freaky and you will need help because of the Spring that can jump on you and hurt you if you dont know how to luck them. But anyhow if you go on the Advance auto part or pepe boys store then you can ask them for the price of the Parts you need then you can get them and put the back ones your self and try to find somebody online or near you that do Mechanics on the side and he might do the front ones for you for a good price. Good luck

My lancer is too low n carrying passengers in it it tends to touch the ground how do i fix it?

Depends on the age of the car, but it sounds like the suspension needs work. You may want to get the springs and shock observers looked at.

You should make the front end repairs and then get new tires. An alignment won't help until you replace the bad parts.

Have a 2005 Mitsu Lancer. Having front suspension problems. Had the shocks replaced + new tierod- still when it goes over a bump- sounds like there is no/weak suspension. Have about 43,000 Miles on it...

You could change the whole thing if you wanted too but I would recommend that you go to another shop. A good mechanic should be able to locate the problem and repair it for you. Sounds to me like the dealership is trying to get more money from you than need be. I have never heard of anyone having to change out the entire front end of a car. Find someone with more knowledge.

Good Luck to you.

The front[or rear] sway bars have links in them that are rubber mounted,it sounds like one of the sway bar links is broken,or one of the sway bar bushings is missing.Find the sway bar and have a close look at the mounts to see if the problem lies here.

Saab 93 - noisy when going over bumps on the road.

Have you tried driving over a bump whilst also applying the brakes? (Right foot on gas, left gently on brake - with no one behind you!) If the noise goes away, then it could be the brake pads that are not fitted correctly. Only posting this, as this just happened to mine...the mechanic took it over bumps and noise was there. Applied brakes whilst going over bump, noise went away. Replaced badly fitted rear pads (had been bodged by another garage) and the problem was solved.

2002 chrysler mini van front end noisy .when you hit a bump.what

I had the same problem with my 2002 Town and Country Limited. I took it to the mechanic and had the sway bar links and ball joints replaced and still had the same clunking noise when going over bumps at low speeds. The van sounded great on the highway, but country roads were horrible. I was about to replace the struts and pay another 700 dollars when i read somewhere that the sway bar bushings could wear and cause the noise. I took it to the mechanic and he said absolutely not it would be a waste of money. Being the stubborn guy I am, I went to NAPA and bought the two bushings for 12 dollars and replaced them myself in an hour. I took the van for a test ride and the noise is completely gone. Please ignore your mechanic and replace the bushings ASAP! Pretty cheap try even if it doesn't work.
