A Few Minor, But Annoying Issues!


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I was looking for some guidance on narrowing down a few niggles with my 05 is200 sportcross (115k miles on it). The car is in great condition mechanically and has always been looked after by Lexus, but I've got the following irritations

- a clunk from the front suspension over bumps. Sometimes tiny bumps can make a noise, other times it won't even do it over speed bumps. All bushes and things are ok, no play in the suspension and it does it under braking so it's not the slide pins. Maybe the shock, but how to confirm other than replace them?

- engine "wobble", backing off or gear changes result in a shudder - not a vibration from the clutch or anything, more like the engine is rocking. Assuming old worn engine mounts, but again how to confirm this?

- a metallic rotational grinding but only at a particular angle when turning left. Won't do it on right angles but long sweeping left hand corners sets it off. Sounds like disk back plates but they seem fine. Nothing obviously wrong behind the front wheels, nothing fouling that I can see or anything

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!!
