1995 SW2
Default New member!

hello everyone!
I'm a owner of a 1995 SW. its white with 166440 miles on it. love it!
its my first car and I've had it for 2 years. Honestly, i cant ask for better
a whole lotta **** doesnt really work in it, such as the AC, but i think thats because the gas leaked out.

I have a serious question though,
Whenever I go over bumps (cracks, etc) my suspension makes a violent clicking noise (*daddank daddank*)
I always dismissed it, since the car's been doing it since I got it. Although my friend told me that I need my suspension checked (he had a similar problem with an Audi A4). When I changed the tires I had the guys at Firestone check it when they did the alignment (****ty job, btw) they said that everything was okay. But they're idiots anyway, I need your opinion on the matter.

Thanks!

Welcome to saturnfans, which is the best saturn forum I've encountered

My advice, since I know diddly about suspensions, is to post your question with a descriptive thread title in the tech section.

You're in the General forum, and your thread title is "New Member!"

A lot of people will read the thread title and think, "Oh, that's nice" and never read your thread.

Keep in mind it's hard to diagnose a sound on the internet. some people have posted links to mp3s of the sound, or taken youtube video. You may also want to try taking your car to another shop that does suspensions as most places will do a free check.

Based on your description, I'd guess front struts but I know diddly about this stuff
...

SW1 or SW2? (Suspensions are different.)
