Front Suspension noise
Posted by PerryD (more from PerryD) on Sat, 1 Apr 2017 16:21:19
2001 9-5 Aero Wagon with 110,000 miles. both left and right sides of front suspension make a metallic rattle (each side separately and independently of the other) when driving over small bumps, big bumps,potholes etc.
Handling & steering feels tight otherwise - just seems that vertical(?) motion of suspension causes rattle/clunks.
I've rebuilt the suspensions of the two 9000's that I've had, but understand that the 9-5 has subframe bushings that are a PIA to replace.
I'm assuming that control arm bushings should be replaced at 110k - just wondering if anyone can suggest if source of the "rattle" is subframe bushing, control arm or something else.
Thanks very much!
