Squeaks and rattles were the bane of my existence in the shop.The easiest way to find something rattling underneath would be to thump various places with a rubber mallet,or maybe bounce the suspension manually to recreate the noise.With the vehicle off and stationary,if you can recreate the sound,it will be easier to find.

I have replaced my back shocks on 2004 maxima now something is rattling in the rear end can't figure it out wasn't doing it until I repaced those shocks.


Hi Yameekia, Chock the front wheels, loosen the wheels, jack up the rear end and place chassis stands under the vehicle and then remove wheels. You will see a torsion bar connecting the left and right suspensions. The bar is sometimes referred to as an anti roll bar or a stabilizer bar. It is attached to the body with saddle clamps with rubber bushings, replace both bushes. At either end you will see that the anti roll bar is attached to the suspension by flexible linkages. These are small rods with small ball joints at each end. When worn these same ball joints make a lot of noise, hammering out a drum roll with each bump in the road. Replace those and I believe your problems will be over. You mentioned replacing the rear shocks....what about the front? Did you know that the shocks are not there to give a comfortable ride but instead to hold the tyres in contact with the road surface. They are a safety requirement for road holding, so with that in mind, have a good look at those too! Regards John

I have a 2005 Trailblazer. I have had the stalilizer bar replaced, new ball joints, greesed the fittings on the ball joints. New calipers, rotos and branke pade. HOWEVER, I still have a clunking sound...


They are really bad for the lower control arm bushings causing a clunk noise. You can't see movement by checking on a hoist, but lubing them will help only temporarily. I did a lot of them under warranty, but being 2005 I'm sure yours has expired. I' would highly recommend changing them to eliminate the clunk noise.

My front wheel on the driver's side is making a rattling sound like it's loose. I checked the lug nuts and they're covered with plastic caps. The plastic caps have flanges that are under the hub cap. I...


Good Evening, this is something I run across alot and mainly it tends to be the hubcaps. And I would first off try to remove the hubcap first an drive it and see if that is the issue, if you still have a rattling noise then investigate further maybe a sway bar link or such. But always look at the obvious first, usually it is something minor that can be overlooked. Take your lug wrench and loosen all the plastic caps and once you have them all loose the hubcap will come off. Hope this helps.
Thanks,
Joey

Front End Rattling in 2006 Pontiac Pursuit


Sounds like a body weld issue ( as this is a unitized body design). Several US GM models prone to this. No real good cure.

Front knocking noise/rattling


I have the same problem with a 2006, V6 AWD. I checked everything this morning and I am pretty sure the rattling is due to the rear engine mount, the one near the firewall. I will take it to a shop this week to get their opinion.

Another source of rattling is the plastic collapsible cover inside the fromt coil spring. They are hard plastic and rattles inside the coil spring.

Bouncing Volvo S80 2002


Get your full weight on the left rear corner and give the car several bounces up and down to get some momentum going. Stop bouncing and watch the car. It should return and only bounce one half time more. Also worth looking at shock for signs of oil leaking. I suspect the rattling may be coming from a broken anti roll bar link. Once again a good look under the car is required.

Cheers John
