Default Clicking Noise When Turning Right (Not Axle)

I had a lot off noise finally I got some noise gone. Now or I been hearing click, click, goes on when I'm turning the steering wheel right and back and forth. Is happen all the time doesn't matter if car is off the ground or not. Also I hear popping noise when I'm turning steering when barley left and right. I don't know maybe cause off nut I'm missing on the rear motor mount. I took an video to let you guy see if my front end link is bad or not n for nut I'm missing on the rear motor mount. Please check out the video below. Thank!


I'm sure most off you know what I had done to the car, if not i will write details for job been done in the past.

What I see is my rear motor mount nut is missing on the bolt and I need to put new bolts on the lower control arm on passenger side.

This is what's been done in the past;

Red lion Racing Subframe bushing front n rear
Lower control arm bushing front n rear
Rear Upper control arm bushing
All motor mount installed
I still have Oem end link in the front never been changed (160k miles on them)
Nismo Sway bar Front n Rear
Racing line Rear end link
Both front axle brand new from napa
Both moog inner tie rod
New rack n pinion


One thing I been wondering that does axle need grease like this video shown below. I know this is for G35 RWD.

Obvious answer is yes. Bolts are meant to be torqed and tightened properly.

To answer your other question about axle grease is YES as well. Hi temp grease should be applied to axle splines where it meets the hub. Regardless if its FWD or RWD

One thing is certain. Thats two of the worse videos ive ever seen

You cant expect soneone to give you advise based on these, seriously.

Also, you are looking for a noise when turning when your engine has a loose mount. If course it will move when you turn the wheels. This needs to be taken care of.

For the first video, I cant see what part you are moving and what part is naking the noise. But whatever you are noving and is making a noise needs to be changed.

Fir the second video, this is not a proper way to diagnose loose lower control arm bushings. You need to use a pry bar between the subframe and control arm bushing. Again, conparing that to the other side if you dont know how much play should be there or going by the judgment from which side the noise is comming from.

And as far as whether grease should be applied to axle splines and your mechanic is saying thats not the case, you listen to your mechanic, probably the same mechanic that can not find your suspension noise.

You could get away without it if a mechanic is a CHEAP As☆ but common practice is to grease splines for longetivity and disassembly. However,Whether the axle splines are greased or not does not have anything to do with making noise. Driveshaft splines are a different thing as they are working in and out with suspension movement.

@BurntOrangeAppeal

I'm sorry for poor video quality. The first video you say that you can't see is because I was trying to feel the pop noise coming from. Again I'm sorry for poor video. The noise I'm hearing is kinda clunking noise at low speed and rear end bouncy a lot moving up and down. I don't know if my rear shock bolt that goes to hub is tight or not. I have rear racing line endlink does it matter which way end link is facing? Also you can see that 1 nut is not there to prevent one nut coming out. I took this video yesterday but again I will make it again tommor when car is on the lift.

The bouncing wasnt there before. The boucing happen after doing rear subframe bushing, lower control arm, and upper control arm bushing installed.

Does # 55045E need to be on there? That's the washer for the bolt. Correct?

No problem. This vid was a little better. Here is a list of questions that I need you to answer in order to help you further.

1. How old &(mileage)are your rear shocks?

2. Since you had your rear subframe removed and colars replaced, have you alligned the vehicle?

3. You state that you dont know if your shock bolt is tight...? Why dont you get a ratchet and try to tighten it and see?

4. Who installed the subframe colars?

5. When you say you replaced "upper control arm bushings, what part number and manufacturer....? where did you purchase?

Also, you are missing a washer on the adjustable rear camber arm bolt closest to the subframe. This washer is needed there to provide support when you hit a big bump on the road, if its not there its easy to spot that your bolt can and will move altering your camber setting.

The other washer you quoted must be there also 55045E. There is a reason for it. This I feel is self explanatory. You cant just remove washers and not tighten bolts that a manufacturer designed and complain about suspension noise.

What ever part you moved in the other video that was making that noise needs to be secured. EVERY suspension part should be tight and silent.

Please provide your answers

1. I had D2 Racing coilover for 1 year and I don't know how many mileage on them. I know for fact that all the noise happen after my buddy did the rear end work. No noise before I gave him my car.

2. Yes I did alignment but I need it again bec is not going straight

3. I did tighten the shock bolts with hand tight but 2nd time I took out tire shock bolt was loose again bolt side and I don't know why's coming loose. Maybe I need to tight it down with the impact gun. But I have red lion bushing there.

4. Buddy install them and there are Red Lion Racing Subframe Bushing and spacer are like C shape.

5. I bought it from vendor here Red lion Racing. I think I'm the only person that did rear end work on 6thgen maxima.


I keep telling the shop who put in new rack n pinion in they was telling me that is doesn't matter if washer is there or not, they said as long everything is tight then I'm good. I kept telling them that I need washer there and there, guess what they tell me that I don't need it.

Tommor I will take a video off whole rear end if shop let me burrow there lift tommor.

Few things you have here from what I gather and they need to be eliminated one at a time.

Since your vehicle is not aligned properly, when you hit a bump it will want to bounce and "dog track. Since camber and Toe is directly related on the rear suspension and you are missing a washer on the camber arm, chances are your toe is out on that side and one or both wheels are facing slightly outward or inward (not necessarily visible by eye) but by alignment specs.

There is a chance that your coilovers are shot, as you bought them used. Perhaps they are not setup correctly on the rebound. I dont know anything about D2 coilovers or the adjustment they offer so I cant help you there. Maybe someone else can chime in that has D2's

What are the RED LION rear upper bushings made out of? I think this might be part of your problem. The upper control arms are aluminum, and the bushings are not serviceable nor is the ball joint. They are serviced as an assembly as pressing ball joints or bushings into aluminum control arm housings most of the time is not possible without damaging the bushing hole as it get enlarged during the pressing process. Who pressed them in?
They might be loose.....within the control arm bushing ears not loose when your car is stationary but when you are driving on stiff coil overs they move within

You NEED to tighten your shock down! Use a lock nut!

Also you mention something about the steering rack washer, which is not the washer you quoted with a part number, so I have no idea. If its there from the factory, it needs to be replaced. PERIOD. Doesn't matter what the shop says and how they feel. Why do you think a dealer replaces ALL the washers and nuts when they are working on your vehicle. 1 is money, 2 is to avoid comebacks due to noise and other complaints.3 is because they were engineered to be there.

So you really need to go over the entire rear suspension and make sure all bolts are tight and ALL washers that were there before are replaced.

Default Re: Clicking Noise When Turning Right (Not Axle)

I bought them new from jmautoracing last year ( never buy nothing from them again because they took almost 1 month and told me that they had it in stock before I gave them my money).

Rear end will bounce on flat road to.

Red lion told me that take out old bushing and install bushing in straight forward I wish I took the picture off the bushing before putting them in. We press them in by hitting with hammer.


I do have lock nut on the shock. I'm sorry you misunderstood me about rack n pinion. What I was say that is when shop put in new rack n pinion in I told them to check my rear end and there did and I told them that I'm missing the washer there and they told me as long my suspension is tight then I don't need a washer there and there.


My front end have red lion racing subframe and lower control arm bushing installed, also my subframe been rasied all the way to chassic off the car body (steering wheel feel super tight snice subframe been rasied). I can't take fast corner bec my rear end is making noise when weather is warm we can hear it louder. I don't maybe cause of washer not been there.


Red lion racing bushing is made out off Nylatron bushing (Nylatron is self-lubricating).

I don't know much about if rear upper control arm bushing can be changed to red lion or not. I know rear subframe is aluminum.

I hope @ Red Lion can chime in.

Do I have to buy washer from Nissan and does it matter what bolt is there or we have to have right one in there? Because I feel like some bolt on the rear end is not in right place.

You should buy a rear camber/toe bolts and washers. They should come with your adjustable rear camber arms. Any autoparts store can order or carries these.

Beating bushings in with a hammer is not the proper way to install them. Bushings should be pressed with a hydraulic press. Vise could be used but I use a press or c-frame.

No idea how a bolt with a lock nut gets loose other then it was not tightened properly to begin with.

Again, make sure all your suspension parts/bolts and nuts are tighened and perhaps some of these questions should be directed @ Red Lion since you installed thier products.

So I need to take out bushing out and install them back?

You think maybe washer is not there maybe that's why causing the noise and bouncing?

I did had toe bolt come with camber arm but shop told me that there are strip and I don't know if they was telling me the true or not. So they put whatever bolts they had.

So I can get toe bolt n washer from Nissan. Correct? I can used toe bolt and washer from Nissan or I have to order toe bolt from icihibia vendor?
