I've searched around and couldnt find help with my specific problem, i've had a small rattle on my front passenger side every time i roll over a small bumps. its pretty profound and it happens when cold and warm.. so yea just wondering what could be the problem with it thanks
i took it to my local mechanic yesterday, my sway bar support links were bad, and my passenger side tie rod was bad.
took it to the dealership this morning, dropped it off, i got the links, tie rod, labor, and an alignment for 100 bucks! thank you warranty lol

If its broken (separated) it disables the bar and as such would not work while turning. It's really easy to check. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left stick your hand in behind the tire and give the link a shake or two.

Hell you don't even have to turn the wheel, just grab it and wiggle it, if it moves then thats a problem.. Thats how I found my problem.

Just one note. If you replace it with the upgraded Moog units, be sure to grease em right when you put em on. Apparently the grease that is in them when you get em is just assembly lube. I didn't beleive that at first. After tonight I am.
I have been having problems with the responsiveness of my suspension. I couldn't figure it out till I pulled out the front endlinks (moog ones) I never greased em and they are totally shot. The ball joints are frozen in their sockets and wouldn't budge. I got out a grease gun and shot as much grease in there as I could to put a band-aid on the problem till the new ones get here. Got em free just a bit and it seriously made a difference in the responsiveness of the car. No more driving a boat feeling.
Anyway. Grease em when you get them and every 3000 miles. Seriously.
