What to replace...

My BRZ just hit 90,000 miles and it's feeling pretty beat.

I can hear the axles clicking in the rear, so I'll have to replace those..but in the front, this is what's driving me crazy...thoughts? (I have BC BR Coilovers).



I haven't searched and haven't checked if anything is loose. Am hoping to get some input before throwing her up on the lift.

How many of the 90,000 miles have you had the BC's installed?

YIKES! I'd strongly suggest you get it up on a rack and tighten whatever is loose, before you drive it much further

Yeah, my assumption is that i'll need new sway bar endlinks or something off the sort..just wanted to see if people have experienced anything like it before.

Unless you have your car as low as possible, the coils should last a bunch more miles.


I agree with @humfrz Check everything out to see if anything is loose.

These cars are lacking in everything except safety standards. I'll be fine, thanks.

Endlinks are shot on both sides, sway bar bushings look a little wet, but not torn or cracking. No play in the wheels and everything is tight. Wheel bearings COULD be starting to go...doesn't seem likely though.

Also my axles are clicking a bunch, time for replacement i presume.

Replace the axle nuts before you assume you need new axles, they go soft and allow a bit of slop (that can't be felt by hand). The other cheap thing is the parking/e-brake needing to be lubricated, noticeable if there's clicking getting in and out of the car with the e-brake engaged.
