2k protege suspension noise

joe_mnDecember 19, 2009

friends car. 150k miles. noisy front/rear end. shop said balljoint, front/rear sway bar end links. still has rattle in rear. sway bar bushing? easy to get to. original struts and mounts. i have heard that this gen protege's are just noisy. rear rattle seems tied to wheel motion. lateral link?

Its likely. The sway bar bushings and especially the links can rattle like crazy. They can make so much noise you'll think the wheel is likely to fall off.

we did the links. still rattles. bushings look ok but we will do those next. front is quieter now. links were loose in front but seemed ok in rear.
