The datum marks on the eccentric bolt heads are to help reassemble when you have replaced suspension parts to make it easy to set up the camber/castor front wheel tracking you should make a note off the original settings before dismantling use the centre setting ie middle line to dot BUT THE FRONT CAMBER/TRACKINGCASTER SHOULD BE CHECKED ADJUSTED BY A SPECIALIST WITH 4 WHEEL ALIGNMENT KIT

You might need a lube job or you may need to see if noise is coming from another place such as your engine water pump, brakes, power steering. Look for leaks.

My 2001 bmw 325i has a very bad shutter at 40 Kmh, it has 15800 on the clock


hi these have a common fault with the lower wish bone the rear rubber bush and the ball joint on the hub tend to wear quick, to check this jack it up at the front and pull the front wheel in and out and look under the car to see if there is movement on the wheel hub ball joint or the bush at the back of the wish bone hope this helps

How do I fix a creaking suspension on my 98 Voyager


Replace the front strut mounts and check for worn suspension bushings. Good luck and keep me posted, you can try spraying dry silicon lubricant from a can to the strut mounts and suspension bushings. Do not use oil or grease, oil base lubricant will eat away the rubber bushings. Good luck and keep me posted.

WHEN I APPLY BRAKES FRONT END SHAKES


A few possibilities
1. Front disc's may be warped
2. Rear drums may be out of shape
Easy way to check gently pull the handbrake lever when going forward if the drums are out of shape you will feel vibration through the lever.
3. Front wheel bearings may have excessive play
4. Suspension component(s) worn
wishbone bushes are a common failiure on Escort's
Hope this helps
Best wishes

Front left suspension noise when reversing


I think you will find its either your lower wish bone bushes need replacing OR its could be brake pads moving in housing as when going forward its the same way as disc goes but in reverse they slide backwards about 5mm if housing is worn ..
other wise you should be ok BUT
Chesk wishbone movement with all wheels on the ground not jacked up

Movement in the front suspension wish bone or bush


Its your life your playing with so Check out by jacking up front of car put bar between w/bone and X member and pull and push front and read mostly bushes but there are a bugger to fit and must be done the correct way or the steering can be allover the place also the Caster and Camber must be done again plus the Tracking at 1/8"
So for the sake of other road users plus your own life get the people who no to do the job (you check it and find the fault by all meens but that as far as you go unless you want bad nights sleep).

they are pressed in, Jaguar uses a special tool which fits over the bushing and you have to use a press to remove them, sometimes they are so tight they need to be burped out with an air hammer.
Not a job I would tackle myself as you need to strip down the suspension to get the arm off for replacement.
