Hello everyone,
When I make a left turn I here a rattling noise coming from the left front tire area. Huh?  The car drives find. It doesn't happen when I make a right turn.

End link (bushing) for the front stabilizer bar is worn.  OEM links are non-greaseable; Moog (aftermarket) have zerk fittings.

And replace both sides at the same time; if one is worn, the other side is probably not that far behind.

I dont think there are any pics..  you will need a 19MM long socket and a wrench on the other end.  Just lift the front end, remove both tires and it is all right there.  You can do it with one tire off at a time but you will need some pressure on the sway bar to keep it level

You may can find an on-line repair manual or exploded view of the part.  Good luck! Grin

You should also get an alignment done after the install.

rbarrios... what's that running down the coil spring?  Is it just water, from a recent wash or puddle, or is it oil?

(I'm assuming this is your own lambda, not just pics you found)
