I have put in new struts all the way around and im still geting a noise from the front like if i need new struts. I took my car to the shop and was told that i had to replace my left sway bar link and my right tie rod. I have put these parts in the car already, and still have the same noise. Anyone know's what it might be?

    Sway bar bushings.

    Take it to the bank.

    And if I'm not mistaken you have to change the entire sway bar to get the new bushings, unless someone found a way around it.

    Yeah, you're right. What used to be a $40 90-minute job (even if you'd never done it before) is now a much bigger deal.

    The early LS's are known for the knock from the sway bar bushings. There is an updated sway bar with bushings. SO yeah, I think you have to change the whole sway bar.
