Deep Grinding in front wheels on sharp turns

Usually when turning or coming out of a turn on a tight circumference is this deep grinding sound in the front wheels. Seems to be worst when turning right. Car is Overland AWD model with 90K miles but has done this since we bought it in 04 with 8K miles on it. Have taken it to the mechanic several times but can't seem to duplicate it when we try to show them and then it goes away for a time.

Sounds like the Hub bearings are bad. These are located behind the wheel after taking off the break calipers and rotar.

Is it a low grrrr, or a Pop pop pop sounds?

Pop pop is the bearinngs in the HUB which can be costly depending on the type, if there sealed hub bearings or the kind that can be replaced without buying an all new HUB.

If its more of a grrrr, its probably the Rotars grinding against the break pads. This can occure if the caliper is not pressing correctly and your burning off the break pads un-evenly or you just have cheap break pads.

The dealer ships dont like admiting theres a probalem because its cost them to replace it for free. Also, if you go back three time sor more because the issue cant be fixed, it falls under the lemmon law and they have to replace the vehicle with and equivalent or better one.

This is probly just the tire rubing the inside wall of the finder. if that is not the case then the axils is probly pulling out of place and that could be the problem. do a back ground check to see if your car was recked in the past if it has then your frame could be bent far enoff when you turn right it will pull out farenoff to make it grind but it wont let it slip. so let me know

2003 Chevy Silverado is making a clunking noise, on and off sometime over bumps. Also a deep grinding type noise in the same location while driving not constant


Hello Karla,

It sounds like you may have a bearing or CV joint going out. Your vehicle will need to be jacked up and inspected. It may be more than one problem too. Its possible the dragging noise could be something between brake pads and rotor, but the grinding that comes and goes in reference to direction sounds like a bearing or joint. I would take it to a professional right away and ask for an estimate only, and then get other estimates from other shops as well. Good luck to you.

I have a 2002 Toy Camry and today while driving I went to make a left turn. I heard a deep "thud" sound that came the front right-side wheel area and a strange grinding noise that followed also...


check for failed wheel bearings or loose wheel on studs. Check suspension ball joints and steering joints the problem is serious so have the front inspected by a competent mechanic

Thumping, grinding noise comes from right front side


most likely a front hub [wheel bearing ]going bad but jack up front side that is causing problem and try to move tire in and out with hands at top and bottom of tire and listen and feel for noise or excess movement it to much movement remove tire an check the upper and lower ball joints as well as the shock/strut but check brakes grinding can also mean pads are metal to rotor but usually grinding and thumping is related to a bad hub

The ABS light came on (stayed on) and the 4X4 HIGH light flashes. There is also a noticable grinding/rubbing noise coming from the front wheel-well when I'm making a sharp turn, going out of a tight space...


Here is my question

The ABS Light is on. For how long,and why are you here,v.s. having it checked out and repaired.
The grinding/etc,would have me putting the vehicle up on stands immediately, and checking it out. I would in no way drive it,like that

Sounds as though your wheel bearing,tone ring,abs sensor etc ,are being chewed up, and causing the code to set

Front end noise when turning. almost sounds like


There are a couple of things to cause metallic sounds when turning. First thing, is if it's a clicking sound when you turn, then you have a cv joint going bad. It's usually more prominent when moving in reverse, however it can happen just as well while moving forewards. Secondly, if it's more of a grinding or scraping noise, we have a couple of options. The sound could be coming from the brakes, if they're worn or have grit stuck in them, or it could be bad bearings in the front wheel hub. The wheel hub has a tendency to making a whining noise when driving; usually most easily heard when driving past buildings. They can also allow the tire/wheel to present the appearance of leaning when looking at it. If bad enough, it can even rub on the brake caliper, or cause the disc brake rotor to wear out the brake pads prematurely. So, to recap: Check:
CV joints, if a clicking sound brakes or wheel hub bearings if grinding or whining sound.

Grinding noise on 2002 Olds Bravada


Try making tight turns to the right and then to the left. see if the grinding noise comes and goes. It could be your C/V joint and they need to be replaced. The noise will only come when your making the tight turns, you don't have to go fast. Walking speed will do and you can hear it with the window open or someone walking beside the Bravada. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to help.
