Question about Pontiac Grand Prix
I have double checked to that all the lug nuts and wheel studs are tight as well as the lock nut for the wheel bearing. These are all tight and don't have any sloppiness to them. I believe the left front shock is starting to go bad, but I'm not positive that this is what is causing the clunk when I turn the wheel. The noise is coming from the left front only. I'm looking to rule out as many possibilities before I throw parts at the problem.
If your car has struts, its probably the upper strut mount. Don't rule out a broken spring.

there is a large nut that holds that hub on. Remove the cotter pin and the cap from the bolt... remove the bolt and the hub comes off.

grab a large punch and hammer and knock out the old broken one. Push the new one in and re tighten. This will pull it into place and because it has splines it should not spin while doing so.

Testimonial: "excellent advice"
SOURCE: I have what sounds like
Jack up one side at a time and get a big bar or a strong 2x4, lift the wheel, have somebody lift while you peek at the inside and see if you can see something loose, grab the wheel and shake it left and right, It should tell you something, If, not, try the other side, Something gotta be clinking in there somewhere. You don't need a socket to get the bearing nut off, it is not tight, it is snugged up and then backed off, If it were put on tight, It would overheat in a few miles and smoke you out of the car and weld itself to the spindle/ axle, which ever you have there, most front drive cars don't have front end problems like 2 wheel drive cars, but they do have bearing problems. Hope this helps.
