I posted this in the Seville Section with no replies...its been this way since I bought the car back in May. Well when I test drove it it was fine and when I was driving it home the next day it was fine, when I got home is when the noise appeared (of course that would happen). Anyways...
Well I'm still not sure what it is since I haven't had it checked out but when I got to work I pushed on my car from the side and no noise. I went to the front bumper and stepped on it and heard the noise. It also happens when driving.
Like I said in my other post a long time ago, its a creaking noise but I guess a better way to describe it is that it sounds like something is "popping". My guess is my strut?
I just did a little video from my phone and got a sound recording. This noise is actually coming from the passenger side...this whole time I thought it was my driver's side.
Now in keep in mind a mechanic from a shop I went to said it was my LCA bushings on both sides...I can only hear this noise on the passenger side so I'm 99% sure he was bs'n me
Might be the swaybar frame(inner) bushings. You can spray them with wd40 to see if the noise goes away temporarily. wd40 evaporates so no harm done to the rubber. I use a mix of silicon grease and powered graphite for a permanent cure.
