Q: Rear sway bar makes noises

asked by on

The rear sway bar makes noises.

The rear sway bar is mounted to the vehicle by means of stabilizer links along the suspension and mounting bushings on the chassis. A fault with either set of mounting hardware can definitely cause some noise, especially while going over bumps or turning. Have an experienced mechanic, like the ones we have here at YourMechanic, come out to your home or business for an inspection of your vehicle’s suspension, steering and brakes systems to verify the concern and move toward a repair.
