yes when you make the absoulute full turn your hearing like a hissing noise this is normal if this is what your hearing then problem solved but if has a different sound than that like a rubbing sound then check the fender wells to see is there is any rub marks this can be corrected by putting in a turn stopper

Since you aready paid $400, go back to ;the shop and get your $'S worth!! Unless someone can prove that the axle bgs were bad, you shoulld ask why pinion & side gears were not diagonsed!!! (dosen't anyone test drive stuff after they "fix" something anymore??? Dosen't anyone give a damn???
If you can't get anywhere with this, find a junkyard unit and install it yourself. It isn't that hard. Just be sure that new lone has the same mount points and gear ratio matches ratio lof front axle.(count gear teeth if you must)

Clunking noise can be caused by any item in the steering, suspension or driveline. You are going to have to get under there and start checking things. anything with excessive play, showing rust from a joint boot etc. is suspect. I could write out a list and the one Item I forgot to put on there would be the item that's bad. If you can isolate the problem and need help removing it, I'm here to help!
Good luck

How many types of bearings are in the front end?


Clunking going slow sounds like u joints bad in the driveshaft(s). Engine has idler pulley and air conditioning clutch bearings, alternator and power steering pumps have bearings, bearing in clutch on fan can go bad making noises at slower speed. Noises only while driving are drive train related. Try another mechanic's diagnosis.

Front end makes noice when turning while engaged in 4 wheel drive


check front axle shafts cv joints one might be bad. also if you turn on a dry surface when 4x4 engaged it will bind and make noise. Jack front of truck up and try to wiggle wheel up,down all around as you may also have a bad wheel hub bearing that is clunking when turning.

Very very loud clunking noise from front end...


Before you look at that, check the front end. With the front wheels on the ground, wiggle them from side to side with some force and see if there is any freeplay. If there is it is probably one of the ball joints that has worn. This is quite dangerous and needs to be attended to immediately ut the cost of repairs in not high. Whilst you are checking the front end, make sure that all the mountings are tight. Anything loose can make some very interesting sounds. Another thing you can look at is the u/j on th propshaft. If you get under the car and grab the propshaft, and move it from side to side in the direction it would be going if the car was running and you can hear it clunking or there is any freeplay, that could be your problem, but the noise would be coming more from the middle of the car.

My manual 5 speeds only makes bearing noise when at highway speeds . repairman says it is a bearing but i thought a throw out bearing only makes noise when pushed in ,


Are you sure hes not talking about a wheel bearing for your front wheels. A throwout bearing will sometimes make nosie like a rattleing if it is not engaged. When engaged it will sound like a roaring nosie. I would check in to were this nosie is coming from first.

My 94 Jeep grand cherokee has a thunking noise that sounds as if it comming from the front end when i turn or step on the brakes.. i checked the sway bar and nothing seems wrong.. please help


Jeeps are one of those vehicles that has some PROs and CONs. One big con is the front-end. Its never just one thing, LOL. You need to check out the front-end, thoroughly. Check all the components, check out the ball joints, tie-rod ends, u-joints, shocks, wheel bearings, and brake components. You can also inspect the wheel lug-nuts.

My 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is making a clunking noise near the front left wheel. The clunking is fast or slow in relation to the speed.


You may have a bad c/v or universal joint at the end of that front axle. If it's a c/v joint, the boot will be torn. If you have a universal joint, it will appear rusted (powdered rust showing around the dust seals) or will be loose when the wheel is off the ground and "unloaded". If they check out as good, you could have a bad hub bearing or a brake problem...you will need to take it apart and give it a good look over.
