Symptoms of a failing Front Stabilizer Bar Link
Hopefully you’ll notice when your car doesn’t drive the way it normally does. You certainly should notice. And that should wave some warning flags in your head.
If your car’s front stabilizer bar links call out sick, then the bar will be able to move back and forth more than in should. The entire purpose of the sway bar is that it doesn’t move, which stabilizes the car. If it isn’t able to do that, then it will be reflected in the handling of the car.
If your car’s front stabilizer bar links are wearing out, they’ll start to talk to you. There are two different noises that busted links will make: A popping noise or a knocking noise.
Both of these noises will be heard primarily during times that your car uses the stabilizer bar, such as when making sharp turns or when driving over bumps in the road.
