SOURCE: jerking motion in front end when applying brakes etc

Hi

I take it you mean the 2 large round bush rubbers, at front of the sub-frame with the large bolt through the center ?

Usually if they are shot, you can see the splitting in them, if they look OK, I do not think this is your problem

What about the 2 Top front cross member mountings, they have a habit of splitting away from the bonding, and this can give strange jerking problems.

Jack up the car on the cross member, and support the body on the 2 front jacking points, better to remove the wheels, and lower the jack a little, and you should be able to see any problem with them straight away, and see even better if you lever with a large screwdriver.

I hope this is of help.

Good Luck

John.

SOURCE: 2003 Dodge Durango clunking noise in front end can

With the information given this is not a sure solution. Questions that need to be asked is when does this happen, turning at slow speedm high speed, when hitting a pot hole etc? Since you have replaced a lot of things already, assuming you have NEW good quality parts so you did not replace bad parts with new bad parts i would definitelu check the pitman arm. This runs from the stering gear to the tierod. It can give you some good clunks while steering, especially at low speed when there is a lot of resistance. Check it by having someone turning the steering wheel when watchin/feeling it.

SOURCE: front end bushing and ball joint

It's not required to change the upper and the lower at the same time. However it will save you time if you do them both as if one is going out the other will soon.
The actual job is not that difficult but you may need a pickle fork or a ball joint removal tool to disconnect the ball joints from the steering knuckle. You will also need a ball joint press to remove/install the ball joints. You may also need a strut spring compressor. You can rent these at an auto parts store.
Basically you have to do the following -loosen lug nuts -jack the vehicle up and place on jack stands -remove wheel -remove upper ball joint cotter pin and nut -remove lower ball joint cotter pin and nut -with pickle fork/ball joint removal tool remove both upper and lower ball joints from steering knuckle -disconnect tie rod end from knuckle (optional depending on clearance) -disconnect strut (be sure to install strut spring compressors) -with ball joint press you will need to press both ball joints out (you also use the press to install ball joints)
Installation is reverse of removal.
For exact instructions you can buy the manual for about $20 or go to autozone.com, register, and view the manual on their site for free.

SOURCE: front end bushings what are they how are they

Well there are stabilizer bar bushings, control arm bushings and strut mount bushings. The stabilizer bushings are usally bolted around the the stabilizer bar and attach to the frame. The control arm bushings are usally pressed into the control arms. The strut mount bushings are on top of the struts. Normally they are replaced as needed. The strut mount bushings are good to do when replacing the struts.

DO SHOCKS WEAR OUT AND START TO AND SQUEAK WITH AGE


the squeaks will be dry rubber bushings. Use some wd-40 and squirt one bush at a time to find the squeak and replace that one or re-tension the nuts or bolts. could be the sway bar bushes.

I am told that my "front end bushing" need replacing. Is $1200.00 a reasonable price for this work?


No, that is an outrageous price if you are referring to the control arm bushing. That bushing costs around $65 at a VW dealer and can be bought aftermarket for as little as $15. Takes one hour to replace. So it should cost around $150 at the dealer. $1200 is outrageous.

Periodic clunck in front end


A 2003 SUV will clock in over 80,000 miles.

It's time to inspect the shocks and struts.

The periodic clunck you hear in front end can cause by


mud guard boot to metal strut body contact

worn strut center post to body of strut contact

worn rubble linkage

or combination to all of the above.


I would take the SUV to a good car wash that has under carriage cleaning.

Let the SUV dry and inspect it someone who can compress the front end.

If the front of the SUV re-bound two times then the struts will need to replace.

2003 Saturn Ion vibration begins at about 60 mph. Tires are good and in balance and show no signs of uneven wear. Had tires rotated as well to see if problem changed, it did not. Had local mechanic put...


Try replacing the end links to the front sway bar. The sway bar end link bushings may be worn and needs to be replaced, buy the sway bar end link kit with the urethane bushing. They last a life time and cost about $45.00 for both sides at Parts Source or Auto Zone and takes you less then 30 min to repalce both sides. Good Luck and keep me posted. Worn bushing to the sway bar, shocks and steering component will cause vibrations out on the highway.

Front suspension knocking noise


Your car being 15 years old, your better of replacing the Sway bar end link. You can pick them up at Auto Zone, Napa, and Parts Source, the urethane bushing kits go for around $35.00 for both sides. The urethane bushing kits last at life time and when removing the old end link, try tightening the nut till they snap the bolt which is easier then to remove the nut from the bolt. It takes about 30 min to replace both sides and make sure you measure both end link at the end of the job to make sure they are equal in length. Good luck and don't forget the lock tight.

How do you REplace the control arm bushings


This is a major repair, if one is in need of replacment best to replace them all upper and lower and both sides! It will require some serious down time and support. Doing one side at a time will be the easiet method but it is going to require jack and jack stands and wheel chocks. Working on a vehcile in this condition will require extra safety precautions as you have to remove everything to access the control arms to press out the bushings. If you feel confident in you mechanical skills then it certainly is a weekend project. Serious question is if the bushing is worn to the point of needing replacement then the rest of your front end components are most likely in the same condition and should be checked and serviced as required. After your done the fornt end will require and alignment check as well, most shops include this in their cost estimate but be certain they state that in writting.

Squeak in front end


Okay....I have been working on my boss' car for a week with this SAME issue....first....try to figure out the spot it is coming from. This part is the pain. Second, have a can of WD-40 and spray it into any joint you find. This squeek could be from an upper bushing, a lower bushing, an A arm bushing, or any other bushing on that side....so start out with this method first because it will only cost you a few dollars, or free if you have it already. But do one at a time till you find it. Then, you'll know what item to replace.
