Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!
what seems to be going on?
if you jounce the car while its stationary can you get it to do the same bump ?
try to max it out all the way really get the front end moving, if you can hear something have someone do it while you inspect the suspension for loose parts
so the next step would be to jack the front end up and release the load off the suspension, and check the lower ball joints and strut mounts, I would get the wheels off the ground just enough you can put a big pry bar under the tire and pull up on it for leverage to really get a good pull on it like in this video, you can also put to fingers in the joint area while someone pulls on the bar and if there is even a little play they need to be replaced,
you can over torque the bolts all day , and did he replace the strut bearings on top?
most do not, you can get a completely loaded one from Monroe with spring and everything just bolts right in
it could be a few things if you send pics of the suspension I might could tell you, the rims can cause an issue for sure because of the added weight on the system, you just want to make sure nothing is rubbing and you should be ok , the only thing it will do is wear out everything a lot faster than normal,
