Why does a 2002 Civic with 91K miles that has just had all tires balanced a complete front end alignment and lower control arm bushings replaced still shake at 60 MPH?
Check the CV joints (front axles) to see if there shot.
Can the front control arm bushings be replaced in a 1993 Nissan Altima or do you have to replace the control arms?
Can the rear knuckle bushings on a 1996 Eldorado be replaced or do you have to replace the entire knuckle?
There are many bushings on a front lower control arm. However, i have a 2003 honda accord and it only needs the big bushing to be replaced and many shops quoted me around $200-260. All shops required to have the alignment done at the same time and it should be around $50-70 so shop around. Good luck

If your struts have been replaced two times and the mounts have been replaced in the past 4 months and the car rides as if the struts sound old what could the problem be on a 1998 Camry XLE?
Had this same issue in a '93 Probe. Replaced the CV axle and stabilizer links to no avail. While replacing the steering bushings I noticed my rim was somewhat warped, so I had replaced with a spare. Not sure if it was the wheel or the bushings but the sound disappeared! And man was it ever a frustrating noise!
I have squeeky front suspension on a 2001 impala I was told to oil or grease the bushings How do I do this?
Your 1999 qx4 sways and rocks at about 60 mph The left rear sway bar link was stripped so you had it replaced but the unstableness has not stopped?
change the bushings in the upper and lower tracking arms. this is the only thing I have found to fix this problem. do not use the rubber ones get the kit for a pathfinder (same year made out of polyurethane. they last five times as long for about the same money if you buy the complete kit with bolts and all the bushings
So many things can cause this, start with the steering stabilizer, use an aftermarket ubit, but that probably isn't all of the problem, death wobble usually involves many worn components of the front suspension so if the steering stabilizer does not stop the wobble start replacing bushings and rod ends, prioritize the replacement by inspecting each set for wear or signs of wear like shiny metal, new shocks will help, but again is probably only…
Why would 1998 mercury minivan vibrate over 60 after rotors front axels motor mount replaced and new tires put on van?
When is the last time you did a balance and rotation. If tires are wearing from a 1/4 of life or less, just get new tires. You also could need an alignment, or tie rod ends and other bushings could be worn out. Make sure there is nothing bent and everything is greased and no grease sepage anywhere. If there is, this is a good sign that parts are worn and need to be replaced.
If your steering wheel is vibrating or jimmying while under normal driving conditions this indicates that your tire are out of balance, or have been worn incorrectly. You may have a bad alignment, bad control arm bushings, improper toe/chamber or the wrong tire compound. If your wheel vibrates while turning, then your power steering pump is failing, and needs refurbished or replaced immediately.

1991 lebaron convertible metal clunk sound over bumps and turns replaced shocks no bent suspension pieces any ideas?
I would have to say a complete radiator/block flush. Tranny flush. Tranny filter and pan gasket replaced. Oil CHANGE. Brake system flush. Check brakes. Tune up. Lube of all bushings including body bushings. have your suspension checked. Tires checked for wear. Oh. Check the motor mounts. Think that's about all I can think of. This is more like a 100k check but it won't hurt.
Can the front control arm bushings be replaced in a 1999 dodge neon or do you have to replace the control arms?
It really depends on the year/make model of the vehicle,type of driving and the material they are made of. I've replaced Factory front bushings on a BMW X5 after on 3yrs/30,000 miles( large soft rubber, city car.) while my mother Chrysler's bushings last 10yrs/100,000 miles (smaller bushings made of a harder rubber). Most last 8-12yrs. BMWs have the shortest life span than I've seen.
