Need alittle help

I have a 92 lude and when I got it it was lowered on megan racing springs but when you turn it makes a loud sound and it only does it when you go slow and doesnt do it in the rain. So were do I start to look to find this problem.

Re: Need alittle help

if the noise wasn't there before i would start at by checking the springs ,try to see if it is siting correct on the strut ,its possible that one side isn't siting correct on the strut.Make certain that your control arms and ball joint are in good condition because the 92 is a lot of years for an original part to last without being replaced.

Re: Need alittle help

are you using stock struts? also, what tire sizes, I'm thinking about getting the 1.9-2.0 inch meagen springs.

Re: Need alittle help

Well putting lowering springs (if the car is lowered) on stock struts is not good. It'll cause the stock struts to wear out. Too much stress.
