Hey Guys, I've noticed lately a moaning sound coming from the front of my car. As i take turns, mostly left, at low speeds, there is a moaning sound coming from the front. My power steering fluid is full and clean, so i'm pretty sure its not that. I've also noticed it makes the sound when i'm slowing driving on an incline. Any Ideas?

No they will not....the only thing that is noticeable when the struts **** out is that particular side will botttom out on a dip or speed bump...making a thud noise as the chassis hits the frame or very bad crunchy/squeaking noise....but not a moan.
Where is the sound sound like it is coming from or what or how are you driving when you hear this?
The moan is caused by the brakes and the vibration is due to a defective part on the front end a tie rod end or drag link. If you want more information I would be glad to assist but have to run to work so post here and I will give it a shot tonight when I get home.
Take an look behind you front wheels,turn in your wheel,and turn off the car,there rubber boots that cover your CV joints,if they are crack,you will see grease/oil.when the cv joints go bad thats the sound your hearing.
I have personally seen a lot of wheel bearings go bad on these vehicles. If you hear the noise get more pronounced when turning left, the right front (passenger side) bearing is most likely the culprit- if turning right, it would be the left front (driver side) bearing.
Hope this is helpful!!
