If you have rims that are to big or wide they will hit the guards as the suspension works... This is why from factory the car has room between the guard and the tire... If you have factory wheels i would recommend getting your suspension checked out as it may have sunk

SOURCE: 2003 chevy impala impala shakes when brakes applied

If it only happens when braking, then it is definately you brake system. Most likely you rotors and pads need replacement. If you can do car work, then this is not a difficult job, but requires some wrenches. The parts can be purchased a lot cheaper on-line. A shop will get you for $300-$800. I bought all my parts for my 2001 VW passat for $200 shipped to my door. Good Luck.

Your shocks are probably blown. You can tell this by looking at the tell tell signs of the fluid stains coming from the top inside of shocks onto the outside of the lower part.

Clicking noise turning right


Could be a tire hitting the inner fender skirting. Check both front tires to see if they are clean/scraped right at the tread and side. This is a good indication that the tire is rubbing something. Also, since your turning right, you put more weight of the vehicle on the left side. You might want to check the front and rear wheel bearings on the left. I've heard them click before, but only under pressure.

I have an 02 impala Service traction control light comes on right away and when your driving down the road it makes a loud roaring sound when you turn to the left and goes away when you turn to the right....


Hi, your right front wheel bearing has failed. This induces vibration to the wheel speed sensor pickup that caused the traction control fault. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

I have a 2006 chevy HHR with 17400 miles on it. It has a clicking noise in the front end when going over bumps.When lifting front of car, the axle feels loose on the transaxle side of shaft on both sides....


On my cobalt (same platform) there is a known bad engine mount that clunks (like you have bad shocks) when you go over bumps.
If you look under the car from the front, you can see its a circle, (supposed to be ) filled with a rubber/composite bushing. They crack and this causes the banging.
It is supposed to look like this...

However, the rubber breaks off and your engine is flopping around.
This part needs a press to press out the old piece, so a mechanic would be the best repairman for the job.


The scraping noise is a different problem. I would suggest CV joints, but being a 2006, they shouldnt be bad unless you tow, or accelerate heavily.
I would lean toward a bad wheel bearing with the symptoms you are describing - also a job that requires a press.
You're in for quite a bill!
Figure $250 each wheel bearing and another 100 or so to fix the mount.
Dealership would be 2x that.
Good Luck!!
