1999 Park Ave Electronic rear suspention
I have a terrible clunking noise in my 1999 PA. I jacked it up and looked it over pretty good and found that the rear suspension support assembly moves (like more than an inch) when I put the jack under it right at the point that support is bolted to the frame , in front of the wheel. I took the body mount bolt out and looked at the body mount. It is not torn or broken like I expected. While I had it apart I noticed that the lower control arm pivot bushing appears to be badly worn, likely the cause of the clunking noise on rough roads. Looks like at a minimum I will need to replace the busing on the control arm. The suspension support is really rusted, to the point where there are holes rusted right thru it. Has anyone else had this problem ,and if so can the support be replaced? I hope this is not a death sentence for an otherwise beautiful car!!!
