Does your vehicle rattle? Is there a clunking noise? Nancy explains how your sway bar could be the issue!
Is your vehicle making a clunking noise from underneath while you’re driving slowly over bumps? Hi, I’m Nancy at Kneble’s Auto Service Center. That this could possibly be your sway bar, also known as a stabilizer bar, could be worn out. Now, a sway bar is designed to keep your vehicle stable and balanced as you make turns. It prevents the vehicle from dipping. One end of the bar is connected to the body of the vehicle with bushings. The other end connects to the suspension by sway bar links. These parts, they wear out over time, and they start making a noise. Now, signs of a faulty sway bar are a rattling noise in the tire area or poor handling. Sway bar links should fit snugly and have no play except at the bushings. So remember, if you have a noise, have it checked out. Always be safe when driving.
