2005 jeep wrangler replaced factory shocks 100,000


for this to happen there is misalignment of the shocky mount hole and the pin that it is mounted to. Check that there is a large washer over the rubber bush before the nut as if this is missing there is nothing to position the shocky mount.

99 dodge stratus, battery hold down bracket. I broke 1 of the bolt how do I remove and replace.


The best way would be to remove the battery and try to heat the nut and use a pair of grip pliers to remove the broken bolt.
Another way would be the remove the nut, this nut may be welded to tray. you will need to chisel it off and then use a regular nut. the only problem would be you should put a small tack weld on the nut to keep it from spinning next time you need to remove the battery.
The last thing is if it does not have a welded nut but rather a clip nut, in which you can pry if off by breaking the clip in two and removing it.

HOW DO I REPLACE CAB MOUNT BUSHINGS


Cab mount bushings are a royal pain. From experience ypu may as well get new bolts and some nuts to fit while you are ordering the bushings. Also get new plates that mount against the bushings. It's not very common for any of these parts to be reusable. The front mount bolts may come out with a socket and strong arm but make sure you are using a 1/2" drive socket not the common 3/8. I believe the socket is 19mm. If the bolts break or won't unscrew you will have to cut a hole in the floor to get at the welded nut. There are 2 layers in the floor where the cab mounts are located. Measure from 2 access points to get an approximate location for the hole.

You can almost guarantee that you will have to cut holes in the floor to get the rear ones out. You will also have to remove the seat to get enough room to work on them.

Once you have to old ones out a small hydraulic jack and a block of wood will lift the cab enough to take the old mount out and install the new one. Use the block to support the cab when you jack so you don't dent the floor. Do them in pairs so the cab doesn't end up crooked on the frame. You can expect this to be an all day job. Hope this helps.

Metal to metal sound in right rear making right


If this has a solid rear axle check the torsion(?) bar on the underside of the axle assembly. The welds have been known to break on them where it mounts to each side.

Front right bushing is broken and causes a "popping" noise


call dealer with VIN number to see if your car is involved. ALso, please explain which bushing. Safety Recall 98S36 - Certain 1986 - 1995 Taurus and Sable and 1988 - 1994 Continental Vehicles - Sub-Frame Rear Plate Nut Replacement AFFECTED VEHICLES Certain 1986-1995 Taurus and Sable and 1988-1994 Continental vehicles that were originally sold or are currently registered in the following U.S. states and Canadian Provinces: U.S. States: Connecticut Delaware District of Columbia Illinois Indiana Iowa Kansas Kentucky Maine Maryland Massachusetts Michigan Minnesota Missouri Nebraska New Hampshire New Jersey New York Ohio Pennsylvania Rhode Island Vermont Virginia West Virginia Wisconsin Canadian Provinces: Manitoba New Brunswick Newfoundland Nova Scotia Ontario Prince Edward Island Quebec REASONS FOR RECALL The body mounts on the rear corners of the sub-frame that support the engine and transmission may separate. This can occur if the lower retainer plate of the mount or the retaining plate nut becomes severely corroded from long term exposure to road salts and retention of moisture in the mounts. This corrosion can weaken the retainer plate of the mount or the retaining plate nut severely enough to allow the bolt head to pull through the washer or out of the nut. Should both rear mounts separate, the rear of the sub-frame will drop and steering may suddenly become difficult. This could result in an accident. SERVICE ACTION To correct this condition, dealers will replace the attaching bolts, plate nuts and the reinforcement plates on the bottom of the sub-frame rear body mounts, on all affected vehicles.
