Hi,
If you are experiencing grinding noises when turning, it is usually the top strut bearings above the springs that transmits noise inside.
These get the worst of salt spray - so often turn to dust. You will need to drop the suspension to check this area out.
It could be that this ball joint is suspect too, but you can only tell with the pressure off it.
Also check other rubber bushes when the suspension is off, as wear on an inner one may not normally be noticed. Uneaven tyre wear is usually an alignment problem - so have the tracking checked by a garage with Laser equipment.

I have an intermittant grinding on the front of my 2000 Kia when I go over bumps. the wheel bearings were already replaced because of this, but the grinding continues.


It seems as though you have changed everything.

A grinding noise is associated with something turning or rubbing against something. The only other thing that springs to mind are the drive shafts, which have splined ends. The link below will show you generic images of driveshafts
kia drive joints Google Search

Each end of the drive shaft is splined. One end fits into the gearbox and the other end attaches to the road hub of the road wheel.

It's usually the hub (universal joint that allows the wheel to turn)/ wheel end of the drive shaft that wears. It may be that the grinding noise has been more pronounced when turning? And the grinding noise is coming from just one side?

A new drive shaft isn't cheap although second hand ones are readily available. replacing a driveshaft isn't a particularly difficult job.

However, it may be an idea to get somebody to remove the brake calliper/rotor/ driveshaft hub and inspect the hub/splined end of the drivehaft. What you're looking for is worn, broken or chipped splines. If all seems okay try cleaning and repacking with driveshaft grease. It's probably the hub - the bit that allows the wheel to turn - as opposed to the splines -there's bearings inside that hub (also known as a universal joint). There's no real way of examining that hub other than replacing the driveshaft

When I turn or go over a dip in the road it makes a pop and grinding noise


I would say it sounds like cv joints need replacing.also check bushes and ball joints for play. If ok turn steering on full lock both ways.start with full lock on right turn pull away slowly if you get knocking noise you will know it's that side is worn and then do same on left turn on full lock.

Oil leak


First of all you must locate the oil leak if is from top rocker covers, timing side crank front oil seal,rear crank shaft oil seal? Is it from the oil filter?,or is it from the front lower wishbones inner bush. That bush is filled with hydraulic fluid,and most probably that is your oil leak..If is from that bush the thing you do is just to renew the wishbone.

Have replaced all tie rods; inner&outer;struts&upper mounts;sway bar bushings & links;lower control arms with ball joints& passenger side upper motor mount.none of these have changed this noise even s


What noise? And year and make of car?
A clicking noise on turns is a worn CV joint on the axle shafts. A grinding noise at one of the wheels could be a wheel bearing. Worn brake pads may cause squealing, screeching other high pitched noise.

Grinding or creaking in 2008 ford fusion front end


Mr.Mangus have you checked at all your front suspension struts,shock absorbers,or lower wishbones with bushing and ball joints? I had recently a diesel ford focus 2007 with similar case and both front wishbones were replaced due to ball joints and bushes and then sent for steering alignment. Vehicle drive excellent. Please check.

Front strutt bush very loose , steering very woolly replaced wishbone and track rod ends only thing i can think of is new bushes to solve the problem.


If the bushings are worn, then it is best to replace them. If changing the other parts did not solve the problem, then have the bushings changed.

Noise...driving over bumps...it sound like the front struts


If its a squeeking noise the rubber bushes on the shocks or the lower contol arm are worn out, if its a grinding noise it could be the shock itself. If it happens when you turn, a clucking noise might indicate a worn cv joint, or a worn wheel bearing. These are all things that need to be replaced by a professional mechanic, if you have the tools, the bushes might not be too hard to do yourself though. Hope this helps!
