SOURCE: every time i turn the

possibly CV joints, or ball joints which on LHs's are usually part of the lower control arm and they are changed together (I.E. control arm and ball joint together as an assembly). 60-70 bucks each if you choose to DIY. but do not forget to check your sway bar end links, as they can wear and make a popping noise. Also if you have never replaced your struts, look into the strut mounts. the bearings in them wear as well and are easily over looked by many "pros". This is something i will be changing on mine over the thanksgiving day weekend, since i will have about 3 days off.

The inner ball joints also have bushings that can be changed but its much easier to just change the entire joint. Not fun for a DYIer but can be done.

Squeaking from driver side front tire


Tie rod ends, ball joint, or Upper strut bearing. An alignment shop would give you an estimate for the repair. You can borrow tools to install the bigger stuff at most Autoparts stores. But for all of these repairs you should get an alignment after replacing any one of these parts.

Jack up the wheel and see if it has play up and down and left and right. Have someone watch inboard as you move it. A bad cluck will usually show itself.

FRONT END SQUEAKS ON DRIVER SIDE


When does the squeak occur? When turning, over bumps, rough pavement? From the limited description i would say the most likely cause for your concern is a dry out outer tie rod end or ball joint. They aren't greasable so they would have to be replaced and the front end aligned to get rid of the noise.

Rattle noise coming from front driver side wheel when going over bumps


It could be several things.

1. Strut is worn and the rod is rattling.
2. The ball joint or control arm are worn. A new control arm comes with the ball joint and a new bushing.
3. The inner and/or tie rod end is worn, allowing the wheel to rattle.

Raise the car and support it. Twist the wheel back and forth while observing the tie rod. Look for play in the inner and outer connections. If this is ok, place a pry bar under the tire and lift up while observing the ball joint and control arm. You should not see any play. Look at the strut. Look for oil on the housing. Look for play in the rod or a loose connection.

Thumping noise in front drivers side wheel and sometimes sound like a clanking noise only going over speed bumps or railroad tracks on 2006 toyota sienna awd


Check your suspension bar and check your front strut assembly, jack up the side you here the noise on and pry against the tire to see if you have any movement between the strut housing and the frame, make sure the top strut nuts are tight, if they are next check tie rod ends to see if you have any play, next pull the wheel from the top and bottom to see if it's loose if it is watch while someone else wiggles the tire, you could have a tie rod loose or a king pin loose. Also it could be a wheel-bearing nut. Let me know what you find so I can tell you how to replace it.

A noise coming from front end of my saturn is it my tie rods


The noise you hear could be the tie rod ends or several other front end items. Can you jack up the front end? If so then turn the wheels from side to side with your hands griping the wheel at the 9 and 3 oclock positions. if you feel freeplay or looseness you have to reach arround and place your hand on the outter tie rod end and see if the play is there or the inner tie rod end at the rack. I worked for saturn for a few yaears and we had ALOT of front struts that made a clunking sound over bumps. Don't forget the lower ball joints could be bad also. Check these by placing your hand on the bottom of the wheel and pushing and pulling on the wheel with it off the ground while checking the tie rod ends. Good Luck, Scott
