Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT
I have a 98 Grand Am GT me and a buddy drove my car around a bit last night trying to find this noise. Going over bumps and thinks this thing clunks terrible, since we live in appt complex you notice it alot there because of speed bumps. Anyqay we went on down the road, basically you get to 40 mph and then try pressing on brakes it literly sounds like the front wheel is going to fall off the car, and it pulls to the right also while braking. He noticed if you basically power brake it but not enough to stop you like still going say 30-50 the noise and wheell shaking is better, But it literrly shankes the **** out of the sterring wheel.. I have jacked up and looked at everything pads, rotors , wheels, and cv boots noting torn there (boots). Now I put new strut bearing holders on about 1 month ago and the noise wasnt a problem for 1 day after I installed those, then it went back to making the load clunk. So I leaning towards ball joint on the right side, spinning the wheel tire assembly in air no contact issues, no broekn bolts, hellllllp I'm tired of listening to it, and I don't its safe either.
Sounds like lower balljoints or inner tie rod ends jack up the car try to move wheel from side to side
