2005 dodge stratus rattle pop and squeak noise

Asked by May 22, 2015 at 03:15 AM about the 2005 Dodge Stratus SXT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok i have been having this
ongoing crazy agrevating noise
coming from my driver side.  
Replaced lower control arm and
ball joint....changed upper strut
mount and bushing.  New
struts.....the thing thats
happening is everytime i go
over bumps in the road or dips i
hear a quick pop or clunk.  Only
sometimes when i go over a
bumpy rail road track or bumpy
wooden bridge its constant.  
Like metal rattling. yesterday it
started having a quick squeek
noise when taking off from a
stop like the same noise as if a
rusty bolt or bushing was
passing through a hole.  Thats
the best way i can explain it.  I
have brought it to mechanics to
check it out and they keep
telling me there is no way that it
can be a ball joint....upper or
lower or tie rod or wheel baring.   
Tonight when i got home i was
determined to find the noise.  
So i turned my wheel all the
way to the right and started
looking under my car with a
flash light while rocking the car
back and forth.   I could hear
the squeek noise i was talking
about.  And it looks like the
sway bar bushing may be
moving back and forth.  Is that
normal ...also i get a clunk
noise in the wheel and see the
cv axle jerk from me rocking
the car back and forth.   No play
in it.   I felt around it.   And there
was no play just jerking back.   
There was no play in the upper
or lower ball joint while hearing
the squeak and no play in the
inner or outer tie rod.   Nor the
control arms.   The only thing i
seen that was slightly moving
and sounded like the squeak
noise could be coming from
was the sway bar bushing.   
Other then the clunk from
maybe the cv axle being rotated
from the wheel being rocked
back and forth.  And by back
and forth im meaning front and
back
