sprintuser Posted August 4, 2008 Share Posted August 4, 2008 Hello folks, I recently bought a 1997 LS with 151000. I knew it may need struts, mounts and tires at the time of purchase. Update: I replaced all three above items. But am still having the following issues: 1. I still have creaking coming from the front right side. I had a buddy move the car up and down while I inspected from underneath. The sound is coming from the sway bar bushing. I tried greasing (white lithium grease) it, but not sure if I did it the right way or not. Any suggestions to address the noise short of replacing the bushing? 2. I hit a BAD pothole (front left wheel) and since then have been hearing a single 'thump' from the front left side when I hit a strong bump (only on hard impact). I realize its almost impossible to define sound, but it does not sound hollow, is not a squishing sound, just a thump, clear and concise. I jaked the car up and tried wiggling things, ever part appears to be in place and not lose. Another thing that has happened since the mishap is that the left side (when looking from the back) looks slightly lower than the right side. When pushing down on the car on all four sides, the left side appears more bouncy than the other 3 sides. Any suggestions in diagnosis the problem would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
