Responding to old post that came up in search.

I too sometimes get a groaning sound from passenger side. It is quite loud. I have wheels and splash covers off and car on jack stands (for other work), but thought I should see what might be causing groaning. Just looking at it, it would seem the noise might be transmitted through part 100.

Others say idler arm bushing.

Steering also seems a bit loose. I know how to adjust steering box, but maybe could also be slop in joints?

Any simple way to do a quick check of various joints?

Maybe I should have shop look at it once I have other repairs completed. Then get on with my life
