THE NOISE IS COMING FROM THE FRONT WHEELS IT SOUNDS AS THOUGH THE CALIPER IS LOOSE OR SOMETHING ON THE WHEEL IS ABOUT TO COME OFF. WHEN I DRIVE OVER A BUMP ON THE ROAD THE STEERING WHEEL SHAKES AND THE BUMPY NOISE COMES UP. ANY SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT I SHOULD TRY GETTING DONE TO FX THE PROBLEM? MY CV JOINTS WERE REPLACES ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO, THE PROBLEM STILL REMAINS, BUT IT HAS GOTTEN A BIT WORST THAN BEFORE. BEFORE I COULD DRIVE UP TO 55 MPH AND I WOULDNT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE SHAKING NOW I CAN ONLY GO UP TO 40-45 MPH.

Re: STERRING WHEEL PROBLEM
Ok your problem is either the hubs which are what the wheel studs are in. or it may be as simple as someone did not put in the small thin metal brackets for the calipers so the brake pads are moving and makind a noise.

This sounds very familra, the problem sounds like a bad wheel bearing, the hard part is locating the bad one, you will need to drive it and try to locate if its in the front or rear. the most common is the front, you can try and jack up the front of the car with both front wheels off the ground and grab each wheel top and bottom and see if there are loose when you try to move it, sometimes a bad wheel bearing wheel have looseness to it and sometimes not. if the wheel is not loose then the next step would be to run the front wheels in drive wheels off the ground and listen for the loud wheel and that will be the bad one, to replace it you will need to remove the wheel then the brake caliper and the rotor. next locate the three bolts in the rear and remove them, next remove the center axle nut on the front of the wheel for the axle. next unplug connector to abs if car has abs, next hammer hub off spindle, it may be frozen on so beat the top and bottom to free it, then remove it and install new one. heres a few diagram to help you out, hope this is helpful, good day.
Did you have the rotors turned? Did you check for rotor runout? Did you remove all rust from hub face and rotor mounting surface? Did you remove rust from caliper or pad slides? Lube all caliper and pad sliding surfaces? Are the pads application specific? Did you flush and bleed the fluid? Did you torque the wheels properly?
if this is happening all the time i would jack up the car and manuelay turn the wheels and listen for anything unusual if it is happening when you press the brakes i would pull the wheels and examine them for a stuck caliper or slider, before removeing the wheels try shaking them side to side and up and down to check for exxcessive play that may indicate a wheel bearing or other loose front end parts, fyi a bad wheel bearing when going around 40-50 mph and veering slowly left then right will usally make noise going one direction worse than going the other -jeff
sounds like somthing is loose. are the wheels out of balance? the rotors are on corectly or the caliper would not go back on. what im woried about is something not tight enogh . did u bleed the breaks?
