Bumping this thread as I am getting the same noise and feel outta my front right strut.More noticably after lowering or with a passenger. When i removed the front strut i dod notice road debris/ almost sand in what looks to be the bearing back part # 12 i believe. Im gonna replace that soon and see if it helps, as my car is lowered i dont want to deal with the dealership just yet.

Looks like you order part#10 Strut mount Back and it comes with both.
Gonna emial b4 i buy to confirm but its a $18 part so not bad.




anyone else have any updates?

I had the same problem. It turned out to be the sway bar mounting bolts were not tightened down. They had loctite on them too. Dealer re-torqued all the front end bolts and attaching points, All was fine after that.

I took mine in again today more for tire balance/out of round problem(not the cold weather flat spotting) they road test balanced the tires said need more weights, and I mentioned the popping in the front end, they said they couldn't duplicate the noise but found a loose/defective tie-rod end and have ordered me a new one should be in tomarrow. This is a new dealer than the one I purchased my car from, I will post after I get it back all fixed and see if that made any change.

me to

i got some grief months ago when i traded mine for a silverado. but the car didnt steer that good and made the noises to where every time i got out of it i was dissapointed. it was at the dealer being checked out once more and they had the rebates on the truckes and i thought better now than a year from now when the value is down. 1800 miles i lost 500 on it. its ashame i waited so long to be dissapointed. theres a saying about being a first year buyer. its ashame after puting a rear sway bar on the rear it was a good ride in the twisties but going down the road strait i was always correcting. i have owned trans am, vette monte carlo ss and you could go down the road with out much correction or noises.

Just got back from the dealer and guess what the noise is gone!!! they replaced the strut mounts and said that there was debris in both the front struts...but i dont get how that got there since ive never driven the car anywhere except on a paved road...well i guess it doesnt matter anymore since that took care of the problem...

I had mine in yesterday for this same issue. They found sand in the bearing and replaced it. I still have the noise. Can you provide an exact list of parts and description from your receipt so i can make my dealer do the same repair?

Thanks!

If this sound is being caused by debris. The debris is not coming from the highway. I ordered my car and it made this noise on the drive home from the dealer. GM needs to address this problem and find a fix for it.

Well, mine is fixed! I am riding quiet again.

While there is a design flaw in the bearing that allows dirt to get in, that was not my problem yet. It would have been someday when the dirt ruined the bearing so i am glad my error produced this repair.

The real problem was that one of the mounting bolts for my front sway bar had backed out. I tightened it up and now all is well.

Good luck to the rest of you!

Mine has been making this noise since it was new. I just thought it was "normal" because I driven a couple of the ones we have on the lot and I heard a simular noise. I hope it is as simple as the sway bar bolts needing to be tightened.

The sway bar jobs I have done on Camaros, those bolts had thread lock on them. Glad you found it.

I have this problem but only when I back up and hit a bump. I have a small incline to the front part of my driveway and when I back over it and hit the brakes it pops big time. Sound like the same issue as you guys have?

Mine is "All noises ...... All the time". It truly sounds like the bad strut noises I had in my 1997 Camaro when I sold it to buy this one....I hear the noise on bumps and potholes. It makes no difference if the suspension is traveling up or down. The noise still sounds like something is loose up front.

My dealer showed me a tech bulletin for a noise in the rear. I am pretty sure this is in front. Have had this noise since 500 mi....Now have 6,000.

What was that you said??? I coudn't hear you because of the noise under my BRAND NEW CAR !!!


Does anyone know of a "fix"?

Thanks!

We have verified some concerns on the upper spring mounts for the front, but cannot go into this. But that is really it. We have checked hundreds of Camaros.

We have also verified noises related to the upper strut washer contacting the sheet metal when the upper mount begins to fatigue. I made a writeup on this and how to repair it. It is on this forum somewhere.
