Q: Left tire rattles, bar behind wheel is broken.

asked by on

My 2004 monte carlo right real wheel is unstable, shaky and makes noise. If I look underneath, it appears that the bar to the tire is broken on one side.

My car has 87009 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The broken bar may be the rear sway bar link arm has broken and may cause the vehicle to become unstable. I recommend limited driving until a mechanic like one from YourMechanic fixes the problem and inspects it for safety to even drive it at all.
