I hear a grinding sound on the driver's side front tire.

Whenever I back up and turn the wheel sharply, I hear a grinding sound coming from the driver's side of the truck. What could be the problem with that?

Grinding, cracking sound from front wheel


check your brakes to see how worn out they our the indicator on your brake shoes could be telling you some thing , like you need new brakes. You could also have a rock stuck in between the brake shoe and rotor .

Roaring sound front left wheel, maybe a wheel bearing?


It could be the the wheel bearing...again, as you said. I also would like to know if you had the front end aligned when you changed the wheel bearing. If the tires have excessive wear on the outside or inside tread, you are out of alignment and BOTH wheel bearings need to be changed! It could also be the brakes wearing thin...check it out!

Every time the steering wheel is turned sharply to either side I hear a kind of cranking sound what seems like it is coming from the steering shaft.


Most sounds while turning (grinding, clicking, clunking, etc) indicate bad CV joints. I'd get this looked at ASAP...

I'm getting this knocking sound in the front passenger side of my


This is a symptom of a failing constant velocity joint. This is the "universal" joint on the front driveshaft which couples to the wheels and is usually covered with a flexible rubber boot. You may find the boot is cracked or torn allowing grit and water to get into the mechanism causing it to fail.

Vibration and noise from front end while driving


Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.
