We've had both struts and new end Cap bearings replaced but still have noise coming from underneath the front end especially going over speed bumps in front of Walmart. We do live on a gravel road buts its maintained with no potholes my mechanic is scratching his head
PS ive checked the the sway bar bushing and end links they seemed OK with link bushings and no lateral movement.
My car has 52000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there. I have come across this situation with this vehicle a few times. Most of the time it is one of two things. It is either caused by bad strut mounts or by failing lower control arm bushings. The shop should have replaced the strut mounts with the struts but most shops overlook it. If the mounts were fine then the control arms need to be checked. I usually need to remove them from the vehicle to fully inspect them for wear.
