Hi!
I have change my front lower control arm (brand new) and my shock for both passenger and driver side.

But I have bad handling with my passenger side. When I drive I ear some "clock" sound when I pass on little street hole.

What could it be ?

thanks.

I had worn swaybar bushings that gave me the same noise.

Ok thanks.

I have new bushing link kit for my sway bar, it's 2 little bushing with 3 washer for each side.

But I don't know how to install it. When I try to remove the old one, I can't remove sway bar to the lower control arm. How can I replace this bushing kit ?

And do I have to change the bigger one bushing conect to the floor ?

Thanks for your help.

By chance was this noise also felt on the flooring of the front as in where your feet rest as your drive? Im getting some noise too and have a feeling it may be the sway bar bushings.

Thanks

I have the exact same problem. Swaybar bushings sounds like part of the solution. What about changing tie rod ends?
