Have the tie rod ends checked for no lubrication, they are the common source of this type of noise. I think a tire shop can listen to the noise give you an answer as to what it may cost to fix at little or no charge.

SOURCE: squealing noise from front end when turining the steering wheel eaither way

Well after speaking to my dad about it, (He knows a lot more than me) and he suggested that it might be the power steering belt. It could be either loose, or worn down. Either that, or it could be the power steering unit wearing down. You probably want to take it to a mechanic and get it fixed. (This is just going of the opinion of some older cars, but we're not positive.) Hope it helped anyways.

Left wheel makes noise has it turns ?


sounds like a wheel bearing or axle shaft to me. A wheel bearing will grind or roar or groan. An axle shaft will click or pop. Both repairs will require you to dismantle the front wheel hub, separating the lower control arm from the steering knuckle. A front wheel alignment will probably be needed following the repair. A good mechanic can knock this out in a couple of hours, a shadetree might take all weekend.

My wife's car is making a loud groaning noise in the front end while turning the steering wheel either direction.


If you have strut type suspension it may be the bearing at the top of the strut worn out.

Hi. I own a 2004 Buick Rendezvous and I must say, it's the best car I've ever owned. Recently, like within the last 2 months I've had a groaning noise with every left turn. My husband filled...


he filled the PS fluid? it was low? If so it has a leak somewhere, usually the high pressure line. the rattle could be anything, have the front end and steering linkage checked. tie rods, sway bar links, ect.

There is a noise coming from the right-front wheel area during a left turn. It almost sounds like a tire-rub on the inner wheel-well cover, but it also makes this same noise when stationary while turning...


I had this same problem and the dealer could not reproduce the noise when I would take it in to get looked at. (during the day when the temperature was warm) So I decided to leave it over night and they test drove it in the morning when the temperature was cold and they heard the noise. It ended up bing the steering rack.

Roaring sound coming from front end as Mazda gains speed. Turning steering wheel changes the frquency of the noise.


You have a front wheel bearing that is making noise. Usually the one that is the problem is louder when turning in the opposite direction. If you turn right and noise gets loud then its your left bearing and if you turn left and the noise gets loud then its your right bearing. Understand that thats just a rule of thumb and that either bearing can make noise in either direction. Good luck!

Front end Rumble Simalar to worn Ball joint Noise


the problem with your truck is your knuckle bearings. I just replaced them on a friends truck and it sounds like the same problem. Just look on the inside of the front hub close to where the front axel attaches to the hub. If the seal is gone you will have a ring inside the hub on the axel shaft.
