If it's a 4WD then your front universal joint(s) on the front wheel drive shafts are on the way out and should be replaced. They should be replaced as a pair (both sides) so that you have uniform wear, but you can replace the bad one to solve the problem. The noise should be coming from one side or the other, indicating which one is going bad, but it's most likely the right sive CV joint. Also, it the rubber boot on the end of the driveshaft is damaged or torn, that would point to the offending joint. Your parts store should be able to sell you a reconditioned half shaft to fix the problem. Replacement can be done at home with decent tools.

If its felt in the steering wheel like my 05 its the steering intermediate shaft that was a common problem and would clunk over bumps and turns because of play in the shaft. Not sure if earlier years were susceptible but I'm guessing it could be.

I hear small thumping under car near front when I turn steering wheel I hear small thumping I feel small bumping at 55-65mph


ensure your wheel nuts are secure.
check your tyres for stones /nails etc

If you hear sound when you turn the wheel but the car is stationary
I would advise you visit a tyre /steering /brake specialist if you cannot locate the source of the noise.

Just changed brakes. Hear a clicking/thumping sound while driving. Is this the CVC joint going out? How to check?


Does the sound get worse when you turn the wheel sharply? Best way to check is to raise the front end and try moving the shaft(s) going to the front wheel. Should not have any play in it.

Vibration coming from front axle when coming to a stop it gets worse, brakes are good , maybe cv joint?


if you feel the pulsation in brake pedal when stopping. its a warped brake rotor thats causing it. for bad cv joint symtoms--- Unusual noises when making turns. As you are driving on the road and you make a turn at the corner, if you start hearing unusual sounds coming from under the car then this is one of the symptoms of a bad CV joint. These noises will sound like something is clicking beneath the car every time you turn the steering wheel. Evidence of a damaged boot. Steering wheel feels heavier. The steering wheel will start to feel tighter and heavier and you can hardly make simple turns to the left or right. In severe cases you might even feel heavy vibrations like you are driving down a rocky road.

Makes a loud steering noise in rear of car when makes a sharp hard turn to the left, what could this be?


Sounds like a right wheel bearing. You should be able to jack up the right side and do one of two things. Shake the wheel and see if the bearing is sloppy or rotate the wheel by habd and see if you can hear the bearing making noise. They are pretty common on these vehicles.

You should have it inspected, Don't want you to lose control while driving.

Popping noise


Inner tie rods could make the same noise your describing. Do this......with your car in park and at idle, slightly turn you wheel from left to right, just a slight ****. 1/16 of a turn. Increase the pace from left to right, then slow down the pace. You should feel a bump in the steering wheel almost like something is tapping it. If so, have your inner and outer tie rods checked. Actually, have the steering gear checked also for leaks and wear.
