SOURCE: Grinding noise in front end

Had the exact same problem, on a used 2003 Protege ES with 82,000 miles that I purchased.
Started with the loud "road noise" I thought well maybe thats just the sound that it makes.
And then noticed that it varies when turning.
This will continue to get worse and then your abs light will come on when it gets bad enough to trigger the sensor..
It turned out to be a bad wheel bearing.
Take it to a shop and have an experienced mechanic check it out. Its repairable.

I have a 2005 camry with 260,000 km. I brought my car into the dealer for a routine maintenance asking them to check out a front end rattling when i go over large bumps. I was told that the control arms...

First,as you travel over a rough road that causes the rattle apply the brakes slightly,is the rattle gone now?If so it's loosely mounted brake pads and/or worn brake caliper mounting bolts/sliders.
Rattle still there with your foot on the brake?Then it's usually the sway bar links and/or sway bar bushings.
To check this sway bar noise,disconnect the sway bar links and tie the bar up/out of the way and try that same road.
No noise now? address sway bar bushings and/or links.
Still noise?Might be struts.
If someone tells you,.you have loose lower control arm bushings,have them show you the play in the bushings before you spend any $$$.

Hi Adam

Have you also replaced the sway bar bushes? Also check the lateral member that runs from the FRONT of the the vehicle to the REAR of the subframe. It supports the front engine and transmission mount. The front two bolts have a metal bush inside of a rubber isolater. Undo then retighten these and the rear mount bolt up to torque. In saying that while its up on ramps start from the front and tighten every nut, bolt and screw right to the rear of the vehicle.
Also check, believe it or not, the front seat bolts. I had a persistent rattle in what I thought was the exhaust system, only to discover that all of the front seat bolts were only finger tight.

2001 Tarus clunking sound

very common problem is the sway bay end links that attach to the strut from the sway bar. They sound like a light chuckling knock over bumps. The bushings that hold the subframe up wear or the bolts loosed due to the bushings wearing. usually the rear ones The bushings are 2 piece ,upper and lower Tighten with 18mm socket
