A loud metal to metal clanging noise in the front of the car


Are you sure the struts and strut bearings are installed correctly and all fasteners are tight? Did you check your stabilizer links? Did you check your stabilizer frame bushings? Did you check your tie rod ends? Did you check the lower ball joints? Did you check the control arm bushings? Did you check for loose or missing brake caliper bolts?

I am sure that a thorough inspecton of the front steering and suspension system will turn up something. However, it is really hard to accurately guess from this end without more to go on than just a "metal clanging noise"....there are way too many things that can fit that desription.

if it has a spring between the side gears , it may be a limited slip diff center and the noise may have been the limited slip action coming off or engaging when one front wheel lost traction
if there is no metal bits in the diff then it may be nothing as long as both wheels turn the diff center , then the axle will still be intact

Jeep wranger, clanging from front end when turning


Probably the CV joints just behind the brakes on each wheel. Try jacking the car up so that the wheel on that side is clear of the ground, grasp the wheel and rotate it back and forth. Do you get that noise? The joints are not repairable, just replace both sides.

Clattering noise


Be sure to check the front struts and mounts. Open the hood and try to bounce the front-end up and down as much as possible while looking at the strut mounts.
