Light tap noise

I was just out in the garage looking ay my sway bar and end links and am wondering if I put the sway bar in upside down. Looks OK but am not sure. Anyway, is there a way you can tell?

dtcandyman trust me...i never thought stabilizer links could make such a noise...but mine did,just taking a turn at slow while entering a parking spot.

poncho62 I would think that the stabilizer links would rattle more when you hit a bump rather than turning. I would think I would be checking my wheel bearings....maybe loose, maybe bad. Or, something loose in the brake drum.

Light tap noise

Hello, thanks for the info. By checking you mean condition and torque on the end links? They are new, but didn't use a torque wrench. According to shop manual they are supposed to be 5-11 lbs on the end links and 17-25 lbs.for sway bar bushings to frame. As soon as weather warms up, I will check those.

Re:tapping noise

I'd check the stabilizer links. They are known for making a ton of noise in any car...

Light tap noise when left hand turn is made

Have a 1967 Ford mustang with power steering and sometimes when making a left turn it makes a light solid tap that sounds like it is coming from the right side underneath the car. It does not do this when making a right hand turn. Could this possibly be the idler arm? Thanks
