I posted a while back about a front end sound that was coming from the passenger side of my 65 chevelle.
When parked and I pull up and push down on the car, the passenger side of the suspension makes a lound knocking sound. I have been trying to track this noise down and thought I had finally gotten it.
I was able to pinpoint the noise to be coming from the coil spring area. I looked at the spring and it was not in its runner (groove). So I rented a spring compressor and turned the spring so it was sitting in its runner.
Well, Noise was still there. So, I turned the spring some more thinking the spring was hitting on the end of the groove it sits in. Today, I drove it up and down the block and the noise was gone. Well, I had to take the spring compressor back to the parts store, half way there I heard the kock again. For a few miles it would not do it very mauch. On the way back from the store it got worse and worse until it does it over nearly every bump. Its like the spring was working its way back or something.
Am I looking in the right place in thinking its the spring?
Could it be one of the control arms? If so, what could cause the spring to knock on whatever it is its knocking on?
I am at wits end here, getting very frustrated about this sound, any suggestions or Ideas would be GREATLY appreciated.
