Some 2001 and 2002 Sonata, XG300 and XG350 vehicles may experience a knocking or squawking noise from the rear suspension while driving the vehicle over rough road surfaces at low speeds. This noise may originate from the rear stabilizer bar and bushing rubbing together. This bulletin provides a procedure to correct this condition.The problem is the rear stabalizer bushing. The new design part number is 55577-38600Lift up the vehicle.Remove the rear stabilizer bracket mounting bolt.Remove the stabilizer bracket from the stabilizer bushing.Remove the stabilizer bushing from the stabilizer bar.Install the new stabilizer bushing after checking the yellow mark.Align the stabilizer-bushing end with the white mark on the stabilizer bar.Install the stabilizer bracket on the bushing and tighten the bracket mounting bolt. Tightening torque: 35-45 Nm (350-450 kg.cm, 26-33 lb.ft)Replace the stabilizer bar bushing on the other side.Lower the vehicle.
The stabilizer bar rotates on the stabilizer bushings (usually 2 bushings required) be it front or rear of vehicle.
Probably a control arm bushing, possibly a strut mount or stabilizer bar bushing. Mine was the control arm bushing, 2001 Windstar Sport pkg.
the stabilizer bars on the rear end usally the bushing s wear out
Check front end for play.
Don't bother, neither the manual or automatic use it
unbolt stabilizer link and replace with new one (be careful, wear proper safety equip. may spring loose, do not lay directly under or over the stabilizer link.
You didn't mention front or rear, the rear is much easier, the front one is one pain.
Blower shaft bushing worn.
If the noise is coming from the rear then the bushing is broken.
use airchisel to remove bushing then threaded rod with two big, thick washer to compress bushing . take socket to drive bushing in with maul and used some bearing grease to assist in install , dropping passenger side control arm makes it easier. what knuckles
Separate the ball joint from the knuckle. Remove the bolts that hold the control arm in place. Remove the stabilizer bar links if required (they will probably break if you live in a rust zone). Unclip any ABS wiring and remove the entire arm from the car. Note the depth and orientation of the bushing (some have flanges, others do not). Using a chisel and hammer (an air chisel is much faster), cave the bushing sleeve in enough to release tension, then pound the bushing out of the arm. Press the new bushing in with whatever you can find. A vice and large pipe/socket should work, as will a length of all-thread rod and said socket, but you may need a ball joint press or a hydraulic unit depending on the style of bushing. Do not use a hammer to install the new bushing. Once the bushing is in, reinstalling the arm is the reverse of removal.

The only difference in an engine for a manual and an auto is that the crankshaft needs to be drilled for the pilot bushing. Even if you end up with a crank that is not drilled you can have that done at the machine shop. A lot of cranks will be drilled but won't have the bushing installed.
More than likely it is the bushing in your motor mount. Just have a mechanic change out your top motor mount...
They're just a simple rubber bushing around the stabilizer bar and clamped into place. They allow the stabilizer bar (or swaybar or anti-sway bar as you might also call it) to pivot and bend slightly as you drive over uneven road surfaces and as you corner. If you choose to replace them (usually because they make a clunking noise over bumps) it is easiest to do so with the endlinks disconnected. Otherwise, be exceptionally careful not to bend the clamps when installing the new bushings.

AnswerUsually its a design problem, GM & some chryslers have a design similar to a hockey puck mounted horizontally with a vertical bushing in the center. These are very common for breaking. If they used a horizontal bushing design (as in the older RWD cars) the lifespan would be much longer as the stress would moreso be riding on steel bushing not the rubber mount part of the bushing (smaller rubber area needed). Eg: 2000 Chev Cavalier/Pontiac Sunfire front control arm bushings, Rear vertical bushings are very common and I have yet to replace a front horizontal bushing. For an answer that is specific the year, make, and model is needed.
The pilot bushing is installed into the rear of the crankshaft. The pilot bushing supports the input shaft of the transmission.
A bushing is a piece of rubber that separates two pieces of metal from touching and/or grinding.
The purpose of the bushing in a transformer is to act like a go between high incoming voltage and a lower outgoing voltage. The bushing is like a electrical reducer.
Remove bolt, washers and bushing and replace with new. It is pretty self evident. Remove tire and put suitable support under a arm to keep spring compressed. Use normal caution when working around suspension parts as the can be loaded by spring pressure. Removal of the stabilizer brackets and bushing makes the job easier but isn't really necessary.
You have to remove the control arm, which is fairly simple if you have the right tools and know how to use them. When you do something involving the suspension or steering you must do it right. There's four connections - the ball joint, the connector to the stabilizer bar, and the two large bolts that connect to the frame. Once the arm is removed the old bushing has to be pressed out a new one put in, which a machine shop can do.
Most new sway bar bushings are split so they can be R & R easily. Remove clamp from bushing, slip or cut old bushing out, slip new bushing in and replace bushing clamp.
Saturn S series vehicles do not use a Strut arm... nor do they have a Strut arm bushing. I'm assuming your referring to the sway bar bushing in the center of the lower control arm. This bushing is not serviceable alone, the replacement of the entire lower control arm is needed if the bushing has failed.
