I had this same problem on my 99 wrangler. It sounded horriable! like something was going to fall off. Look at your sway bar links very closely. There is a ball joint at the top of the link, inside the rubber boot. If that comes out of its hole then this will allow the link to loosen up and travel with the suspenions movement (makes a loud clunk when the suspension goes down as the top of the link is a tapered thread and wants to stay put but cant). They were about $40.00 a piece. Only the left side one was broken but I changed out both anyway. Bad shock absorbers and New Jersey potholes are to blame for this parts failure. I replaced them in my driveway with out taking anything else off. You will need a jack, wrenches, socket wrench, needle nose locking pliers, a torx 55 bit (sears hardware), and a small but heavy hammer to get the tapered end out once you remove the other bolts. Really hit that ******, it will most likely take a couple wacks. Oh and do yourself a big favor and spray the bolts at the top and bottom with some penetrating oil. I sprayed mine twice a day for 3 days and they were still tought to loosen up. I can not inagine what it would have been with out the oil. Take a picture of the old ones before you remove them. When you put the new ones on, use the picture to make sure you get the hardware in the right place. Use the locking pliers to hold the top stud in place while you remove the bolt. Just push down the boot a bit and stick the nose of the pliers in there. DO NOT DAMAGE THE BOTTOM BOLT. New link parts do not include a replacement but this can be bought for about $15.00 if you do damage it. It will just make this project go from 30 min to a couple days.

My 1998 astrovan is very loud driving over bumps, potholes, and road imperfections. 4 "brand new" used tires but still haven't gotten an alignment. Air pressure is all the same.

are you talking road noise from the tyres
or exhaust or suspension noises

used tyres matching for noise ...
depends on tread pattern and how much thread
what year they were made

tyre pressure ...sure check all are to spec

pre inspection before any wheel alignment
should will be checking the suspension condition

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.

Rubbing noise in front end when car sits going over a dip, also when engine is braking, noise comes and goes

most likely you will find that there is a plastic gard up above the tyre. if it has come lose then sometimes one end of it can flop down and rub aainst the tyre. this will usually happen when you go through a dip because the suspension let the tyre go closer to the gard at the same time the plastic bit hangs lower as the car goes through the dip. when my car did this I also found that when I tok my foot off the accelerator the front of the car would drop down causing the suspension to do the same thing as when it goes through a dip. also some corners and and uneven roads do the same thing.

My 1993 4wd gmc sonoma has a loud squeek when you turn the steering wheel. It sounds like it is coming from the steering/suspension?

check out the hub and the cv joints if it does noise while moving if noise while just turning =check power steering pump /fluid and the belt for correct tension

Loud groaning noise while turning left


The groaning noise is the power steer pump operating under duress. I would suggest having the front suspension checked for any seized or failing ball joints or control arm problems. Most suspension guys will give the undercarriage a look over for you for free to check for any failing/unsafe parts. The engine belt driving the power steer pump should also be checked in case it needs adjustment.

I have a 2001 Silhouette. I have a noise in the front end that sounds like a wheel bearing going bad. It increases in loudness with speed. At low speed it can't be heard at all but at around 50 to 60 it...

I have a 2002 Olds van and it also makes a noise under the front driver wheel well. Mine was mostly when I hit potholes or large dips causing the shocks to compress. The problem is a metal to metal contact between a bushing lip and the suspension. On this side, the bushing is manufactured opposite of the passenger side. The lip is up and causes the two metal pieces to rub. I had to grind down the lip so it would be like the other side. All is better now. I'm not sure if this is where your noise is coming from since it gets louder with speed. I would assume yours is a bearing. Sorry.
