    Good day Tsikoteers!

    I have a problem with the front suspension of my '99 Mitsubishi Spacewagon. The rainy season has started and so with the irritating squeaking sounds coming from my car. I had it checked by all the mechanics I know here in our town but to no avail.

    Ball joints replaced. Lubricants sprayed all over. Brake pads replaced.

    Please, I need your expert advices before I go into the ditch of useless spending.

    Thanks in advance!

    You need to be a lot more descriptive instead of just saying "noisy". How can you reproduce it? Is it continuous noise? Does it happen during acceleration, deceleration, braking, or anytime the vehicle is in motion?

    I hope you get the picture...Details.

    What if the noise only occurs during braking or turning? Checked all the supports and it looks fine. Cannot find other reason why I have that "tok" sound on my car.



    I may be stupid, but I am not a fool.

    if the tok sound is heard during turning, CV joints. baka butas na yung CV boots mo and pinapasukan ng tubig o moisture.
    kung di pa naman sira yung CV joints, pwedeng regreasing yan, pero kailangan mong palitan yung boots.

    Sir tanong ko lang po yung boots ba yung rubber covering ng CV joints? Punit na po kasi yung sakin eh. And may sqeaking sound yung front suspension ko kapag dumaan ako ng humps. Although barely noticeable naman yung sound pero naiirita ako kapag naririnig ko. Wobbly steering wheel din po ako. Possible po ba na CV joint din ang sira or tie rods? Thanks..

    Encountered some thug and clug sound in my old sentra before checked all suspension ok naman yun pala yung cross member ang may problema may pinalitan lang na screw at washer konting higpit ayun ok na. You may want to check that part of your car as well.

    If it had been raining recently, check the under carriage for evidence of rust stains, this usually indicate looseness of parts or wear that causes this noise

    yes, yung cv boots eh yung goma... kung punit na yan, malaki ang chance na may moisture o basa na yung cv joints.
    ang cv joints eh puro bearing and puro grasa. pag nabasa, kakalawangin yung bearings... dun nagkakaproblema.
    CV failure is recognized by toks.... hindi squeaks.... pag squeaks, nasa ibang joints yan, so kailangan mo pa din ipagawa, at the same time, replace your cv boots and have your cv joints greased, kung ok pa sya.

    in addition to that pede din pumasok buhangin at iba pang dumi sa daan sisiksik sa pagitan ng bearings na mas mabilis makasira ng cv joint.
