SOURCE: Loud clunking noise in 2008 Pontiac G5

HI, i would inspect the strut assembly for loose structure asap. i would also inspect the wheel knuckle and rotor and tie rod ends for loose fit as well. inspect thoroughly.

Its most likely the CV-joint assembly. the boot may have slipped off, allowing the joint assembly to dry up. i advise to inspect all the above before looking at the CV-half joint assembly and boot.

SOURCE: dull humming sound from front end of car

Agree with Nick with some additions.

Check the pressure on the front tires.

Eyeball the front tires. Look for excessive wear, exposed steel, missing sections of tread, anything out of the ordinary.

SOURCE: noise from the front

Car will pull if brake is binding...as soon as your speed cannot overcome the amount of braking being applied. Be careful when examining it the rotor will be much hotter than normal. (sometimes will turn blue and warp as well)

SOURCE: HUMMING NOISE FROM FRONT END WHILE IN MOTION ,

Thats bad, if it really is the trans. When wheels are up in the air, put the car in gear, and grab the coil spring. If a wheel bearing is bad, you will feel the vibrations through the spring. If you compare right and left, you will be able to tell which wheel bearing is bad.

Well the only thing you didn't change were ball joints and if it's four heel drive , the universal joints in the shafts. Since it is a balance problem I would suspect the drive shafts. Although these are uncommon to have a vibration at a certain speed, I wouldn't rule them out. Also the u joints can get stiff, this would cause your problem faster. Check them for a lot of rust at the caps. And just a note alot of front end guys miss the shafts on alignments.

sounds like it time to have the front end balljoints inspected. Only with an inspection will you get the proper results. Why guess, this is a safety issue.

Front end shimmys when accelerating and under a load when reaching 35 to 55 mph???


Start by driving the car very slow down a flat road. If the sterring wheel wobbles back and forth do this. If you know which side has the worst shimmy jack the front wheels off the ground so you can rotate each tire freely. Have another person with you for four eyes are better than two for this proceedure. One will rote each front tire slowly looking for a buldge in the tire. If you do see a buldge in the side wall or on the tread area which sticks out that is cqaused by a broken belt in the tire. That will cause a shimmy as you drive.

FRONT TIRE BOUNCE AT 40-50 MPH


relace your shocks. the design of any dampner(strut or shock design) is to return the wheel to the road for handling and safety. when the shock is worn out is with continue to bounce like a basketball. it has no more strength to return to wheel to the road. a common misconception is that they are there to absorb, not true. the springs or torsion bars are there to absorb and create ride height. the shock does nothing more then return the wheel to the road. simple and inexpensive.

My front end makes a loud humming noise. At low speeds, I hear a humming noise and at high-speeds I can hear a noise in my tires. Not sure if it is an the wheel bearings, bad tires, or alignement.


Alignment will not create a sound by it's self. The most common cause of humming (especially if you have an agressive tread design)is a wear pattern in the tires...check for that or rotate the tires around & see if the noise changes. If it does then you know it's in the tires. & Not always, but most of the time a bearing noise will increase or decrease in intensity if you load up one side at a time by doing 35-50 mph & turning slightly to each side.

Intermittent High Speed Wobble around 50 mph


Have an alignment place check your idler arms & steering links, and tie rods for play, as well as the rest of the front end. that's a dangerous thing to fool around with.
