Creaking Noise At Front Of Car

Recommended Posts

Hope you can help me?

Occaisionally start getting creaking/suspension type noises coming from front of my Lexus 400 1997 Mark IV? Am pleased to have Mark IV but it has done a lot of miles - 168K

Seems to come on when the car is warmed up after a long run. When I take it out again and it is cold - noise not there?

What do you think it could be? creaking noise - thought at one stage might have something caught in the brake but tinkling noise/creaking like a spring ??

Any thoughts much appreciated ?

Regards SimonT2 :unsure:

May just be a rubber bushing that need lubricating.

Mine was doing that recently, at first we though it might have been the Brak Calliper Clips, holding the pads in .... but then it was established that it was the rob between the two callipers that cause the pads to squeeze the disc, that needed lubricating, as it was making the "clunking" noise ....

Maybe ?

Try front anti-roll bar bushes. Many owners in the US have reported that lubricating/changing them eliminates the noise. The bushes themselves are very cheap and it's a DIY job to change/lubricate.

Try Sewells in USA. Shipping shouldn't cost that much, since they weigh next to nothing. Try changing the rears at the same time, makes a big difference on roundabouts!

Got 15% discount by mentioning Lexus Owners Club

I contacted Darrel Diller on ddiller@sewell.com
