Front suspension lower arms

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Guys,

The front right corner of my 987.2 (after 41000miles) squick when I turn right at very low speed so I decided to go to a Porsche authorized mechanic close where I work. It seems it is the lower arm joint dry. This what he guess. Anyway on Wednesday I will bring the car to the garage and see it on the ramp and if this is the case, I will change both arms. 

 

Anyone with the similar amount of mileage had the same problem?

 

cheers,

Andrea

Squeaking can usually be resolved with some spray grease.  The same happens with top mounts if the car is left standing for too long.

Just changed the front control arms on my 987.2 at 54k miles.

They were rattling at low speed over bumps.

Fairly easy DIY and does not need alignment afterwards.

Thanks Rich,

I was considering to do it by myself, but unfortunately I am not so good. I would require someone to drive me.

 

So it seems it is a quite a recurrent job to do on these cars.

 

Cheers,

Andrea

Back from the mechanic. This time I have been lucky!

It was just a joint on the steering wheel rack that was dry, so a lick of grease should have fixed the problem.

 

Tonight I will open the good bottle 😅
