TSB# 01-7-1 99 Cobra Rear Squeak When Braking

Anyone have the contents of this TSB you can post here or e-mail to me? I think it has something to do with a creaking noise when the brakes are applied.

Contact information is below.

Many many thanks!

Todd

I know about alldata.com -

There are some techs on here who have the actual contents of the TSB - that's what I'm interested in.

Thanks :)

Do you have a 99? If so, it's the rear lower control arm bushing cups rubbing against the mounting ears on the IRS subframe. Loosen them, grind away some metal with a die grinder, and apply anti-sieze in the crack. Re-tighten. fixed.

I was actually referring to this part of the post:

"creaking noise when the brakes are applied."

Is that what you were referring to as well? That is the problem I am having.

Thanks,
Jon

Yes. When the brakes are applied, and going over bumps at low speed. This causes the lca's to flex and the bushing cups rub the subframe. This was fixed for the 01's supposedly, but was a prevalent issue for the 99s

If you crawl under the car and look closely at the rearmost lca bushing, you should be able to see if it's rubbing the subframe ear. Just look at the flange on the bushing cup - it should be shiny if it's rubbing. If it is, that's probably causing the creak.
