93 Quest knocking in front suspension

Postby mmcpeck » Wed Jan 02, 2008 9:46 am

Hey Guys,

I have a 93 Quest, and the front end is knocking around pretty bad. The struts were original and had 127K on them, they were really shot, so I replaced them. This made it slightly better, but not much.

There is still a very noticable clunking, and even a creaking/scraping noise on bigger bumps and dips.

I figure sinse the previous owner drove around with the bad struts for so long, that the rest of the suspension took a beating. I can only assume the bushings in the control arms and stabilizer are shot, but would this give me a clunking and creaking noise?

I have seen this problem posted before for Quests on other forums, but never any answers. Is this common on early Quests?

Thanks for any help.

I'm not familiar with the front end of a quest, but it sounds like it might be ball joints.
