Rear Suspension problems

ok...my car sags in the left rear. i changed shocks and springs twice nothing fancy just basic stock stuff. i took it to the shop. and the guy said it sit's about 1/4 of an inch low on the left rear. he said it's not common for these vechicles and said there's nothing i can do about it. It also makes this whining noise from the same side only when i turn left. it kind of sounds like something is not lubricated. I've been to three shops so far for both of these issuses and they all say that they can't find anything wrong. one guy suggested that it could be the control arm bushings are that bad or maybe something with torque box. Oh and it also takes bumps really hard from that side also. Any suggestions??

Re: Rear Suspension problems

you can buy spring spacers from www.maximummotorsports.com to raise the car.

For the noise, it could be the axle, or the bearings in the rear end. I would inspect the bearing.

Also inspect your lower control arms and their bushings. Make sure its not bent~ as well.

I agree with him. I had that problem about 6 months ago (made a really loud whinning noise when i turned to the left) and it ended up being the wheel bearing.
