4WS problem? loud clicking noises...

Ok here's whats going on. I have a 1988 lude with 4ws. When I turn right I can hear a clicking noise from the rear of the car but when I turn left there isn't reall y a problem... Does anyone know what this could be? I'm worries if I leave it it'll get worse



Cheers

My buddy has the same car and he had a noise similar to what you describe. It turned out to be a control arm bushing that had worn out. He went to a junkyard and bought a used control arm for like 30 bucks and that fixed his problem. Hope it helps and keep rollin ol' school!

You may want to check your bushings chances are they're old and worn out. Let me know how it goes.

Also check that your driveshafts are still straight, Changed mine and my car became dreadfully quiet. Especially if your exceeding 130k miles.

Check your power steering fluid level too.

From my experience I've had similar problems with my 88. Ive talked to different people about the steering mechanism but I never found out whether or not the rear suspension would have something similar to a constant velocity mechanism. The clicking you described, if in front would be the CV Axle. A Honda Mechanic told me the steering boxes were sealed on the purely mechanical 4WS units. Can they be fixed? Hope it's just a bushing dude!
