Sounds like a worn ball joint, or a worn top strut mount. They have bearings in them and are known to go. To check the ball joint, jack car up only 3inches. While you look underneath have someone pry the front wheel up and down with a steel bar or something like that. Make sure you use blocks or jack stands for sure!!. The ball joint is at the bottom, and one at the top. Look close for any movement. In the air this should be noticable if it's bad. . Also get someone to grab the tire and wiggle it every which way. The best way to check the top strut mount is to look under the hood, you will see where your struts are bolted on. One big nut in the center, and three or four nuts around the outside. While car is on the ground look at this area while someone turns the steering wheel. if this is getting bad, you should hear it, or see too much movement. Not easy to tell sometimes unless you take the whole strut off, but these cars are known for this problem Keep me informed and if you see the problem feel free to ask questions. I can walk you through it. Please rate this solution

1998 pontiac GP makes thuunk when put in reverse


It is the rear motor mount. If there is a load on the motor it will make the noise and if there isnt any loud on it it wont make it. They should put a new one on it and maybe they could sell the car faster. There is three motor mounts on this car , one on the frount of the motor and one near the fan and another on the trans in back of the motor.

In 2 wheel drive there is a whirring sound from the front end followed by a loud clunk where it feels as though you have run over a large rock or chunk of ice. Does not seem to occur in 4wd


if the whirring you describe sounds like an airplane and increases with speed that would be a wheelbearing and it may be loose to cause the clunk noise. when it is put in 4 wheel drive that can load the bearing up and noise goes away.

2004 clunking noise thru steering!


Its probably the intermediate steering shaft. The shaft where it goes thru the firewall is known for clunking on these trucks. GM makes a lube kit to fix the noise. I don't have the part number handy, but the parts guy at the local dealer will know what you are looking for.

Good Luck
