Report: Noise Over Bumps Due to Radius Arm Bushing Wear
Ford Explorer Problem
Model Year Affected: 1991
The radius arm bushing may wear, causing a clunking or popping noise when driving over bumps. To repair, the bushings need to be replaced. Depending on the severity of the wear, the brackets may also need replacement. Driving with worn bushings will shorten tire life and cause tire cupping (uneven tire wear).
How do I replace the Radius Arm Bushings where it meets the cross member?
