Re: Front suspension

I drive it everyday I'm in Houston and the roads are bad when I go over a bump it sounds like something's loose I checked all the bolts on the tie rods brakes calipers ect... The only thing I could find was the rubber bushing on the idler arm wasn't there and I could move it by hand the tie rods were tight

I would start by replacing the idler arm budging I think they are like 12 bcos at napa. Make sure to get the right one, they have manual and power specific I believe

But other than that, have you redone the strut and control arm bushings. Go to poly if you can, but those often wear out
