2004 Outlander XLS AWD 186000Kms.....Lately when I would release the accelerator and reapply pressure on the pedal, I would hear a thumping noise. Turns out the front supports for the rear differential were beat all to ****. Here is a picture of a new one, the one on the passengers side (Right MR961408, Left MR961407). Bracket was 84$ each plus taxes. You should also replace top and bottom stops at the same time( All 4 stops about 15$). Items 9,10,11 in exploded view. I will post a picture of the destroyed ones when I replace it after snow storm ends. Both bushings are broken. Front wheel drive Outlanders will not have this problem. It took me 15 minutes to change both.

Replaced my brackets today..... yes they were in the same bad shape as Outy's.

For those in the USA here are the part numbers:

RH Bracket - MR961408...........$70.00
LH Bracket - MR961407............$70.00

Upper Stop - MR491694...........$10.00
Lower Stop - MB515155...........$10.00

As Outy mentioned, pretty easy job, the bolts needed a little extra encouragement to break free and on the passenger side the exhaust pipe is in the way but can be moved with a crowbar

I have the same symptoms. My rear differential supports look the same as the ones on your photo with lots of space above and below the stops so I will change these.

It also looks like the differential support member bushing (#6) on drivers rear is cracked.



I think I need a special tool to replace these unless you think I should replace the entire arm with bushings already installed. What do you think? Do you have the part number for that arm?

Aside from the noise and affecting resale value, not much. Might beat itself eventually. If you can stand the noise and don't want to change it is up to you.

At last someone in the UK is supplying the rear axel mounting bushes for £49 the pair. Took me about 2 hours to cut the old ones out and push the new ones in using a large vice.
No thump when we off/on the accelerator pedal. It's made the moustache bar rubbers clunk more though so will be replacing them with some polybushes at the weekend along with the sway bar bushes and hopefully that will be it for a while. Or maybe not.

UPDATE.
Finally got around to replacing the two moustache bushes with poly ones and also the anti-roll bar bushes. I now have harmony at the rear.
Total cost of replacing bushes in the rear upper control arms, diff mounts and moustache bar was 130 diy instead of 700 unfitted for the whole items at uk mitsubishi prices. Lots of hasstle though but my time is free and nobody on the planet is worth uk motor dealer hourly rates which are 60-100 per hour.

Don't be ripped off when replacing these.

Mine was noisy as **** before replacing the front diff mount bushes - banging around whenever the torque load changed.

Now I have fitted poly bushes - not a single noise from the diff at all.

Cost me AUD$395 fitted - and being poly will last longer and a more firm.

Now for another suspension question.....

The 00UTY has all new bushes & suspension bits fitted, yet when driving over sharp bumps (a pot hole with steep sides for example) I am still getting an occassional clunk from the front end.

Anyone got any ideas as to what this might be?

Cheers,

Check Your Inner Tie Rod Ends, these are notorious for wearing out on outies. I replaced mine and you could move the shaft in and out of the housing quite a bit.

Does anybody know the top and bottom stops part number? I'm having the same issue now. I just bought the support brackets but doesnt come with the stops.

I just picked up a 03 Outlander and it came with that sound. Do you guys think the noise will go away if I just change the stoppers instead of the brackets and the stoppers? The brackets are pretty pricy. The ones you pulled out looked old but not broken. What you think?

Personally I would go all the way - change brackets and stops.
Even if they dont look that bad - rubber and plastic age and dont function properly anymore.

Or you can just live with the noise as stated in previous post ...

Beware: Parts moving too much can damage themselves or other parts ...
