Wow you have picked my brain from 1989 when I was in the body shop business. I used to fix fiberglass vehicles and most were corvettes. The older guy I used to work for showed me how to set the rear suspension up and we would jack the back of the car up and turn a cam and nut on a trac bar. The tire would be tilted at about 3 degrees inward (bottom of tire). You then would lower the car and the tire would set almost straight... I mean .... (ever so slight tilt). It has independent suspension as you well know and if you have checked the u-joints this is the next try. Worst case, a good alignment shop can fix your woes.

What would cause my Aztek to make loud grinding, groaning and now sounds like something is broken in the rear while driving?


My hunch would be rear wheel bearings. Lift and spin each wheel listening for noise is all I can suggest at this point.

Noise coming from the rear end of my 2004 honda pilot it really only occurs during cold weather and after it warms up you hear it slightly


When does the noise occur, while driving only, or driving and idle, in gear, or in neutral and park? If it occurs all the time (while driving and at a stand still in cold weather) it could be the fuel pump. If it occurs only while driving, it may be a wheel bearing. Describe the noise (humming, grinding, whirring, etc), and what is the mileage on the Pilot? Answer my questions so I can fine tune my answer. Thanks!

Grinding noise from rear. Brake pads? Bearing maybe? Seems to be coming from the passenger side rear wheel area. Any help would be great. Thanks.


Have the rear brakes inspected. These are real easy to change if they need to be. You need to look under the car just outside the differential. This is an inboard brake system so the wheels don't need to be removed.

You can adjust the shoes outward on the rear by removing the wheels and drums, then above the axle but below the wheel cylinder you will see an arm that is horizontal, pushing both of the shoes outwards. There should be an adjustment nut that you can turn to extend the arm to push the shoes out.

2004 TL thumping noise on the front passenger end


Sounds like worn suspension components. First, look at the tie-rods beind the wheel, If theres excessive play or real easy to move inplace, than it's bad. Also look at the bushings along the top and bottom of the independant links. Also, check the strut, its the cheapest repair and is most likely the problem.
