Question about 1993 Buick Century
When I go down the road in my car, there is a noticeable "thumping" sort of vibration coming from the front passenger wheel area(the faster I go, the faster the sound gets), at first I thought it was because that tire had a bulge in it, but after replacing that tire, it was still there.
At around 35+ MPH, that is when it starts to be audible, and noticeable. When I drive at 35+ MPH around a curve to the right, the noise goes away, even while I maintain speed, or accelerate. If a shock were to "break", or whatever it does when it goes bad, does that make that particular wheel bounce all over the place, creating that horrible noise? I suspect a broken shock, and a backyard mechanic suspected that also, but he did not know about the noise that goes on.. help! I don't want my tire to fall off while I go down the road!!!!
I have a.2005 Chevy equinox and it'starting to make a thump noise in the front it's not a flat tire it's not the rotors idk what it could it be I need help the faster I go the louder it gets.Just need some advice could it be the trtransmission?

If the noise isassociated with "wheel speed" then it is in the rolling parts... axle hub bearing brake rotor caliper wheel or tires...if it goes away on right turns then you are unloading or separating the issue then...so a hub /wheel bearing /axle issue is most likely...does your brake pedal pulse when you feel it..(riding the brake while driving)..does the steering wheel shimmy ?
