Sound Familiar?

One of the most universal means of assessing the condition of an automobile, especially an older vehicle, is to listen for creaking sounds. A car can have an engine and brakes that function beautifully, but if the vehicle makes rickety sounds, it can significantly detract from the driving experience. With this in mind, it pays to assess the condition of the body mount bushings, which serve as the attachment points of the vehicle's unibody shell to the subframe. If these bushings are worn or degraded, they can squeak and actually compromise safety and ride quality. Many vehicle owners seize the opportunity of replacing body mount bushings to upgrade from rubber components to higher-quality polyurethane bushings.

Listening to a car is important. From bangs and knocks to squeaks and squeals, the noises your car makes are often the first sign that something is wrong.

Hint: Worn body mount bushings may result in alignment problems.
