Its making weird noises again.

Well I got my UCA's changed, passenger side was a PITA but I got it. It actually looks like thats the third set that car has seen, the ones that came off of it were TRW thats an Advance Auto Parts brand. But heres my next question, there is a horrible clicking sound coming from my left tire everytime I turn left. What could that be, and how can i save money because I just dropped 120 on my UCAs and I have a trip to take pretty soon and can't afford to spend anymore money.

Thanks alot guys.

Oh I see, yea those things were shot, I wish I had pics. But I figured out that is my brakes that make the clicking noise. Everytime I hit the brakes I get a click, its even worse when I hit the brakes while turning and it comes from both sides. My calipers dont have the center piece thats supposed to quiet them down. Could that be a factor?

...Your lower ball joints are probably the same. That click you hear would be the ball joint trying to rip itself apart...sooner or later....it will.


I did the same thing when i was having suspension noises. First changed the uppers....didn't fix it...changed the lowers...all better.

How can I tell if there that bad though, I can't afford to spend money on LCA's and they look absolutely fine. Is the some sort of trick to finding out if theyre that bad.

Ok I took a look at my LCA's all the bushings are good so I really don't want to go out and buy a new one. However I will go out and buy the ball joints. My question is, can I press them out and back in without taking out the LCA?
