Suspension parts: time as well as mileage "sensitive"
My '95 LX has only 41,000 miles on her.
I'm driving around last week and some real strange, bad sounding noises were eminating from the suspesion. I had it checked out, and it turns out that I need lower ball joints, outer tie rod ends and strut rod bushings. The UCA's and end links were already done several months ago.
Now this may not come as a surprise to some, especially since I live in Florida, but for others of you that are not aware, if you have a low mileage MN12 Bird, and haven't already replaced the front suspension parts I mentioned above, keep an eye on them, they are at least 8 years old, and age matters as much as mileage.
