Question about 2001 Hyundai Elantra

The front of my car is too low and everytime i see a speed bump i have to drive carefully around them. I'm not sure if its the suspenion, struts, or shocks. Its not making any weird sounds when i turn or anything. How can i figure out the problem and what do i need to look out for?

I'd take it to a few shops that do front end alignments and get a couple of estimates. Usually both strut springs do not fail at the same time. The struts are just shocks so thats out. Not much can drop both sides at the same time.
Have you actually measured the sides to see if the front is lower ? Or has a panel or object dropped and is now very close to the ground while the car is still more or less at normal height ??

SOURCE: "Humming" or "bearing" type noise in left front at highway speeds

That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.

SOURCE: I just had the shock absorber/struts replaced on

Why would drive a vehicle with a check light
on, and a system diagnostic code

If your concerned about a wire,look it over,
and see if everything looks to be in place

When you reconnect battery how much time does it take for cpu to program itself ?


All makes & models are different. You have to drive the car at several miles high speed, than several miles low speed & repeat the process. That usually covers most vehicle. But just drive normally at high & low speeds and soon enough you'll be good to go. Does not do the clock & radio for you. That your on your own.

What could cause a thumping noise from the front end when turning at low speed?


sounds like wheel bearings-1st
but hopefully your front disc need turning, or replaced.
check wheel bearings by jacking up the front end "CAREFULLY" WITH
JACK STANDS & wiggle tires,if you get more than a 1/4'' slack on 1 or the other, than it's shot. Best to replace both sides. "GOOD LUCK'' &
BE CAREFULL.

When I drive slow over bumps/speed bumps I hear a noise in the right front wheel well. The car does not seem take bumps well but seems to be better going over them at higher speeds. Shocks? Struts?...


It could be a bad Shock/Strut, Ball Joint or a bad CV Axle. Put the car on a lift and try to move the parts around to try to isolate the noise.

Loud front end noise over low-speed city street bumps.


I have the same problem but others said that replacing the $25 sway bar bushings fixed the problem. This solution helped several owners so it's worth changing.
