my car has made this noise before when turning right, grinding noise. took it to get fixed. now it is making the same noise. what is this piece grinding on my rim? and why did it come back?
Not a tie rod end. That thing is connected to his strut. Tie rod ends connect to steering knuckles.
Do you have original original or aftermarket rims. Plus those struts aint original. Your car may be sitting to low or needs a alignment.
That is a sway bar link end and its fitted incorrectly, the nut should be on the other side.
It is likely on upside down OR both sides are incorrect, the 'ball' end should be on the other side of that tab.
Whot the fuck car is that?
Also looks like someone fucked up the suspension because its all twisted towards the wheel
Shop is idiotic go to a proper shop next time.
Okay so found out if they are the original rim and tires. If not you may need to replace them to stop the problem.
Then for your struts. You can replace them and put on oems. Or alignment place can maybe adjust them for you. That is a big maybe.
And after all that you do need a alignment. So go get your car aligned for safe measure.
take it to a tuner shop and just act dumb.
I did and the shop owner took pity and didnt rip me off but its up to the luck of the draw
This i remember if i got the wrong brand of aftermarket shocks they would rub on any wheel wider that Stock like 7" so yeah shit was fucked.
Its why i only buy stock cars that have not been fucked.
Or at least factory sport pack cars so i know it all works
Get it towed back to them at their expense, explain what I said in the post before, make them replace the link end and the rim at their own cost.
Suggest they don't touch cars anymore because that is amature hour shit.
Man just take it back tell them they put it on backwards. End links have nothing to do with steering angle.
In all my years working in the auto field after market rims or not. Ive never seen links rub wheels. Not saying it couldnt happen but, it'd be rare.
Take more photos tho
Illegal and also unsafe unless its hub centric and Expensive, cheaper just to replace the front rims with something with a non retarded offset
God i wonder what else is fucked up with ops car
This should have been a instant warning sign.
How long you had the car for and how long since it started making noises?
it can depending on the car
test drove the car, made the noise and they "fixed it. made the noise again after a month or two and i said f them and took it to pep boys. problem went away and came back again after awhile, they fixed it AGAIN. now it just started making the noise tonight. i hate life.
Maybe on some high end cars it can. But on an 07 hyundai I dont think so.
Either way the apprentice that did this should have is journeyman inspect all work he puts out if he is getting away with this shit,
Holy shit just go to a different shop? How much money have they ripped you off?
i had an issue where my allignment kept slipping because i broke the steering rack maybe ob has a similar problem or the anti sway bar is physically slipping left/right and pushing the links out? Weird how its only happening to one side kinda befluddling
Oh mate its a double edge sword the more you know the more you'll want to fix but as i found out theres no point fixing some things within reason (small slow oil leaks in common spots etc) and factory defect stuff (fucking fords)
And silly stuff like my idle dying because my idle dies because i have a aftermarket tune
Doesn't matter about the rims if they fit the link ends like that. Has to be all fixed/replaced.
Unless America is cuckland, down here (Australia) if the workshop fucks something they have to repair it all by law.
Actually OP please take a picture of the opposite side (Passenger) like you did in the original pic please
Lol good luck a fuckwhits in multiple out of state fucked brakes in both cars (queensland) and me being in nsw didnt have a leg to stand on
Take pic of other wheel plz
my dunnydoor uses the same design.
On a 1.6tonne v8
it leans like a bitch with a factory upgraded sway bar and all new links and bushings...
>the more you know the more you wana fix.
Ooo i know that feel. I just do whatever is in my price range and or easy. "not lazy" easy work. If i end up needing to remove a whole front end to get to something fuck that. Have some other pooor sap do that.
And never neglect maintenance. I can tackle a timing job!
I just dont understand the thought process. just link it to the control arm a much stronger mounting point, which every car i've owned does. strut cars already suffer from scrub radius issues and they put an end link on the strut. dumb cunts.
17mm on the link ends, 19 on the knuckle nut end, 21 on the bolt end, 21 on the wheel nuts, 10mm holding the wheel speed sensor, 12mm holding the brake line bracket.
Fucking YEARS working for Hyundai.
Tiburon is a cash cow for problems
You would have to completely reconfigure a lot of cars suspension in order to do that. The only actual cars I can think of off the top of my head that have this design would be subarus and older cavaliers. But dont quote me on that.
They are simple as fuck to fix, basic issues across the entire range. Things you know to look for on every model, like the drivers side engine mount on the Getz and brake rotors every 30,000KM on the iX35. But fucking god damn does it get old working for a dealer where thats all it is.
Though I'm at Lexus now and even less goes wrong mechanically.
...idk if faith or coincidence.
Hey maybe you guys can help
I have a buddy with a 2003 hyundai accent. Problem is his steering wheel does not tilt. Like there is no handle or switch.
There once was a video on YouTube on how to raise the steering column. But i can't find it. Can you guys help?
Im in NA never heard of those models of Hyundai. Mostly all I see are accents, elantras, and santa fe's. The odd Tuscon. Often times its mostly bearings and links/bushings here.
Im on the east coast of Canada and those snap rings in the bearings are such a pain sometimes. I end up having to cut them out with the torch 90% of the time.
If there isn't a little pull down tab under the steering column or buttons somewhere then it wont be adjustable. But there really should be a funny locking tab (it will pull down) about 15 to 20cm down the shaft (from the wheel)
Two screw drivers, use one to twist one of those snap ring notches inwards towards the bearing centre and the other to pry it upwards.
Keep prying along the ring and it will shoot off and poke your eye out in no time.
Bottom of the dash? fuck no, if they had to pull away trim to adjust it they were modifying it in some way.
Anything that the driver has to interact with is easy to access and simple to use otherwise fuck wits kill themselves trying to get to things.
If you have to remove trim to gain access to something you shouldn't be touching it.
Hah, sometimes it works. Although I have gotten so used to cutting them out I rarely even try to pry them. God dam salt on the roads here in Newfoundland is insane. Plus the salt in the air makes it corrosion heaven.
Yha. Thats what i was thinking. but the fucker actually took off the plastic bottom panel then then the metal frame. Moved the cables and forget what else. But i was like " Daaamn"!
Yeah, dont touch it. Otherwise a mechanic somewhere somehow will get a photo of the failure and show their mates and we will all laugh.
We all do it.
protip-hubcentric rings only help in aligning the wheel during installation the friction of the hub to wheel mounting flange is what holds the wheel on. otherwise it would shear the lugs/bolts the first time you dumped the clutch. they make plastic hubcentric rings. also spacers are legal.
Yha that was ne about the spacer idea. Is not realy a good idea. But i see mexicans do it and i just shake my head.
Thinking the same thing for this guy who bought the Tiburon. How many more mistakes can we add on.
They hit something, by the damage it was something contrete. There is A LOT more damage but thats the best one visually. Car is pretty much a write off short of 20 to maybe 30 grand worth of work.
From what I can tell it looks like someone put a drum on the front wheels? The rotor face just looks really off.
Im after striking many rotors with hammers and never seen them break like this. Usually the face will be the first to split.
holy fuck i knew it the part of the coilover that attaches the sway bar link to the fucking coil over itself swiveled around on the first pic.
look at how its in a different fucking rotation holy shit
Get rid of those coil overs asap go with normal gas struts!
yep it seems to be rubbing like shit so not only are those coil overs fucking shit fucked but also both front rims totaled and god knows what else
their shit rims anyway
holy fuck how much did op pay for this bucket?
Thats on backwards too, take off both link ends play around with them until they fit with the nut on the wheel side.
Dont need to support anything, you will be able to flex the sway bar just with your hands.
Tighten nuts as tight as you can with a standard 17mm spanner.
is that a real lfa? Holy fucking shiiiiiiiiiiet
allow for fully adjustable suspension ride hight, spring rates and shit like that
bitch are you dumb? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coilover
holy fuck whut your right op do you even have springs take photos from the ground up of your front suspention facing the underside of the bonnet
That tab assembly can be rotated, Just need two C spanners of the correct size.
Loosen the top, rotate until parallel with the wheel, tighten it back down with a little lock tight on the thread.
Really short springs on cheap coilover kits for the Tiburon.
Like REALLY short
Real and loud.
This is louder though
The few I have seen with cheap coils in them have no more than 15cm of spring, its super weird, Can kinda see it in this shot.
BUT if for some reason there isn't springs at all ill fucking laugh my ass off.
Fuck no, customer rice
Only factory rice I deal with is bright colors and expesed carbon stuff, Hoods, roofs and spoilers
Dude just one more picture, show us if it has springs or not.
Have a Lambo for your efforts
I do now but come from shitloads of other manufactures
Engines are bullet proof, suspension isn't a strong point, you cant do good smooth shocks that handle well plus carry the weight so there are a few models that are common to die.
Other than that, bushes in the luxury models but they carry some crazy weight with reclining and massage heated rear seats and stuff.
Hell we had one of the orignal LS400 come in and with just over 330 thousand on the clock it still could balance a 50c coin on the engine from idle to redline and back without issue.
LOL holy fuck their way too small hahahahahhahaAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHAHAHAHhehehehehehaehahehaheAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
shame they have like 0 aftermarket otherwise i would have got one over a ls and my i6's
lol fucking classic ai omg op got fucking ripped off even more than my mate who bought what he thought was a 'thunder' vu ute but it was a regular old 3800 series 2 with no supercharger
>he thinks it has an internal supercharger
>mfw hes a fucking idiot
its actually worse because with that setup the suspention has no travel and the spring just instantly compresses to its max and the car feels like its bottoming out.
Just fucking burn the thing and dont sink money into it.
Before you do please take pics of engine bay, interior and under the rear suspention please i need to see this holy shit
Its rough because the springs are so short.
You get what you pay for with suspension, When I had my Skyline I had cheap coilovers in it for a while, then bought some for around $1600. They were better but still harsh, I finally dropped close to 5 grand on good Buddy Clubs and they were beautiful BUT everything is harder than stock.
someone cant handle their lols
or he could not even touch it and get rid of the pos
well not a riced tiberon please can we see more pics of the rest of the car?
next car you get make sure its stock and drive it over rough roads
Internal Supercharger, fucking fantistic.
Does he buy that octaine booster from the servo aswell? Make him hook up a boost gauge and ask him why it wont make positive pressure in the manifold.
no but the respray has so many fucking bubbles in it.
it was such a obvious mock and he didnt want to show me the engine bay for years so i snuck a peak and yep stock 3800 he paid like 6grand for it and it had fucked wheels and tyres and suspention and had like 200k plus on the clock and interior is fucked.
biggest dumbass but not as bad as op who really needs to post moar pics cunt
i buy this now? http://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicledetails.xhtml?zip=92804&endYear=2017&showcaseOwnerId=58080498&startYear=1981&firstRecord=400&transmissionCode=AUT&transmissionCodes=AUT&searchRadius=10&maxPrice=10000&showcaseListingId=413327732&listingId=419428397&Log=0
well idk you seem to want a sports car but keep fucking up so i suggest you get a friend to help you.
if not consult the sticky
my personal advise would be stay away from asian crap and get something stock v8 american rwd from the early 00's mustang, camero, pontiac etc.
someone post the what car is good aussie or american one doesnt matter help this guy out
