Trials And Tribulation
Posted by Saaberite (more from Saaberite) on Fri, 29 Mar 2019 08:45:09
I'm extremely PO'd right now. About a month or so ago I replaced both wheel bearings, the left 1 was gone. While there, I decided to replace all of the suspension bushings since I had already had them for some time in my garage. There was also evidence of cracked & torn bushings all everywhere. Everything was fine except for a new whining/grinding noise from the right side which i haven't located the yet. So, over the last few days, I've been hearing a clunking noise whenever I hit a bump or apply the brake or just taking off from a light. The clunk became unbearable yesterday. Jack the car up this morning just to find out that my newly replaced front reward bushings had totally disintegrated. I guess storing rubber spare parts in my Florida garage is not a good thing. Don't know how the other bushings made out yet, but I'm now very concerned about everything rubber that's been in my garage for awhile; I've got a nice stash. Hope I can replace them without taking everything apart again. #reallypissed.
