yes, this is a very common thing. the proper term is front thrust rod bushings, they wear out, the way to tell if they wear out is if going slow and you step on the brake you should feel the steering wheel jump up and down slightly, the car overall should feel loose in the front end when pressing the brake suddenly. the only way to fix this is to replace the bushings, good luck.
how do i replace the front end bushings on 1997 Tahoe
If the Saturn Vue is anything like the Saturn ION, chances are it's the front sway bar bushings. A design flaw caused them to wear out prematurely. This causes a clunking noise when going over bumps. It is also very possible that it is a front control arm bushing. Start with the sway bar bushings (since they are cheap) then check the control arm bushings.
It's possible your Control Arm Bushings are worn excessively causing front end shake/shimmy. The bushings are on the left and right side control arms and are very inexpensive, About $5.00 each but
Try applying a little bit of grease to the lower A-arm bushings on the front end. If this is not the problem you should take it to a mechanic.
my front arm bushing gone on the front right will it hurt to drive it
Since The Villager is of unibody construction, there are only a couple things that can be considered "subframe bushings". Sway bar bushings (front and rear), rear leaf spring bushings, and the most likely, control arm bushings.
check your radius arm bushings check your radius arm bushings
A arm bushings
Yes, it is possible. Any loose/worn front end part can cause steering wheel to shake.
The stabilizer bar rotates on the stabilizer bushings (usually 2 bushings required) be it front or rear of vehicle.
worn front end bushings, the death wobble usually needs track bar bushings but I recommend replacing them all with nylon when you do it.
change the sway bar rubber bushings and sway bar link bushings
What is bussin? Bushings? If so, which bushings? Upper Control Arm (A-arm) Bushings? Sway bar bushings -- front or rear? Ya lost me bud, try to be a little more specific and maybe use a spell checker.
possible the dust shield for the brakes. hey its happened to me. hope this helps.
Your a arm bushings need replaced.
Check the control arm bushings and any other bushings that may be worn.
Worn out front sway bar links or bushings can do that.
As far as I know nobody makes bushings for front control arms of Altima 93-01. Many Internet stores sells complete control arms with bushings and bell joint. I've found one that sells at 79$.
Sway bar bushings
I am having my strut bushings and sway bar links replaced for $330 in northern IL. NOT at the dealer. They wanted $800.
Use a ball joint press. You can get one from Harbor Freight. You'll most likely need the accessory kit as well. You can use the press in different configuration to press the old bushings out, and the new bushings in. Even the front upper bushings in the axle can be pressed out, although it may be a little tricky setting up the ball joint press to do the job.
Check the shocks first they will squeak pretty bad when going out ( dried out seals ). Bushings will squeak but they would have to be pretty bad to do it when just pushing on the front end.
Underneath the front passenger side area. Almost right below the front passenger seat. It's above a plastic plate with a few difficult screws.
put a jack under front to relive tension and remove the two frame mounted bushings first then remove end links check all bushings and replace as needed i suggest using polyurathan bushings made by energy suspention
