Man its been awhile since i saw one of those. i wish hd still made rebuildable front ends instead of throw away *** units. run your finger to the bottom of bushing to see if there is a lip on the bottom, if so, go to harbor freight and buy a blind bearing removal set if it will go to the size you need. if not, they also sell a slide hammer tool with claws that will work if it will go into the hole. if all else fails, take a hack saw blade and carefully cut the bushing almost through on opposing sides, try not to scar tube. you can then use a small screw driver and work the bushing out at one of the slits, once the tension is gone, it will pick out. other than that, find an old hd shop. as an after thought, there are expanding pipe ez outs which should clamp to the bushing allowing you to pull it out but do not over expand so damage to the tube will not occur.

Knocking in front end when the suspension moves while driving strait or turning.


You do not say what model vehicle you have or it's mileage.

There is a number of possible causes such as worn and perished rubber "bushes" in one or more of the suspension components which is resulting in metal to metal contact. It could be something as simple as perished bushes in the front stabilizer bar or you may have old worn out shock absorbers (which should be replaced anyway) with perished rubbers in the mounting points.

It is impossible to tell you where the fault is without testing and then inspecting the vehicle as the entire front suspension and steering needs to be checked. The vehicle needs to be put on a hoist and the front wheels removed.

I suggest you take the vehicle to a competent suspension specialist in your area who will be able to identify and rectify the fault for you.

My front suspension will not go up only the rear is up and the front stays down.


The only reason i can see hanging to your problem is either your shockabsorbers or spring coils. Let them check by a professional.

Steering vibrates over 30 mph.


I would look at changing out your bushes. do both sides as if this happend on the right you can bet your bottom dollar that the left will soon go as well. While you are at it check your shockabsorber mounts.
