Strange noise under the driver's side.

Hello everyone,
Since a wile im realizing this annoying noise coming from the front driver's side wheel area.
this noise is coming when i hit some holes in the ground and i very hard to explain but is like something is moving under the car.

I checked the suspension are and everything look fine...but each how many km i have to change the sway bar bush?

And what about this?? i never changed it...i have to buy it?? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Moog-K200178...2266f3&vxp=mtr

Witch part i have to change to keep in good shame my suspensions?? My jeep is now 85k kilometers....


thanks a lot.

Hey Filo, My first guess would be the sway bar bushings which you are speaking of. I would also replace the end links as well since they are cheap to do and you are set. Be sure to measure your sway bar to ensure you get the right size. You will find while searching that there are two different sizes. Good luck! It's an easy repair.

Thanks a lot! But how i can be sure about my end links...there r in ebay?
And about the rear sway bar bush is necessary to change it during the car 's life?
Thanks again

The sway bar bushing is a commonly replaced part. They wear and deform over time allowing a little space between the bar and the bushing/bracket which causes extra noise on bumps and rough terrain.

I have replaced my rear bushings while searching for a noise which ended up not being the bushings. From what I have read, the rear bushings do not need attention as often as the fronts. When I said measure, I mean measure the width of your sway bar to ensure you don't get the wrong size. There are two different size front bars our there apparently and associated bushings for them. The front end links should be the same.

You have a bad wheel bearing.

Get it fixed ASAP before it causes more damage.

BTW: Never go to a dealer or any of the franchise type car service places, they will both usually cost you more money and often have poorly trained mechanics.

Go to an independent mechanic, preferably one recommended by a friend or acquaintance.

Lower cost, better service, generally speaking.
