So as spring approaches up north here the 86 Laser is going to be hitting the road once again soon ...... but there is an issue that needs to be dealt with, some kind of front end noise ....... the entire front end is new ( less than 5 thousand miles ) : control arm bushings strut bushings wheel bearings lower ball joints struts, springs, and supposedly the strut mounting plates rack and pinion here is the problem, after the front end alignment last spring I heard a slight thumping coming from what sounded to be the front passenger side, I raised the car by the frame and pushed and pried and pulled SEVERAL different times but I was unable to find or see anything lose, very aggravating especially after all that work I put into her .... however, luckily I suppose, toward the fall I started hearing a creaking type sound coming from what appeared to be the front passenger side front while sitting at a stop and turning the steering wheel VERY slowly side to side ..... this noise only appeared after I drove the car for around 15 minutes or so, it did not make the sound when the car was cold ...... I did not have anyone to turn the steering wheel back and forth while I was underneath trying to hear where the noise was coming from, I will try to do that at some point soon if I can. any ideas what that noise may be ? it almost sounds as if it is coming from the strut assembly but not sure ..... and hope everyone has been good and your cars are still on the road performing well !!!!!!!!!!!
