Could be rust off rotor, does it sound like it's coming from same side as repair? Either way, call them and explain & tell them it's not driveable, due to brake problem. If they have any sense at all, they'll do what has to be done to check it immediately. Better cautious than end up in an accident.

1989 Subaru GL Wagon, told I need both axels replaced and ball joints as well as brakes replaced, for $500.00. Is that too much?


That whole deals sounds fishy. Brake job should be about $100 depending on parts. That part about needing to replace axle to replace ball joints doesn't sound right. I've been a diesel mechanic for 30 yrs and bought, drove and fixed used cars a bunch. Not that specific one, but plenty of them. Get another opinion.

How to change left front axle


Assuming 4wd or AWD.
Remove wheel.
With someone in the car pressing on brakes, remove the center nut (pinion nut). I use impact gun once the retaining clips are off.
Now remove brakes (rotor and all)
Unbolt hubs (good time to replace them if needed).
Press hub off pinion. I use a large steering wheel puller/harmonic balancer puller.
Axle now will slide out of the hole where the hub was.
Consider replacing the ball joints at this time (use OTC ball joint press + the jeep specific adapters there is a slight angle to the inner C's and if you don't have the jeep specific adapters you will spend hours cursing .

Changing the axle (or hubs) is mainly an excercise it getting rusted bolts off. Changing ball joints - with the right tools - is not to bad.

Check with autoparts store for the torque values to tighten everything up.

Obviously check your brakes while you are in there.

My 2002 ford expadition is still making the grinding whoop whoop noise, I took it to a machanic and they said it was the roter or brakes or ball joints, so I got all replaced on both sides and it is still...


If the noise only happens when you are moving, and it changes with the speed of the truck, its something that is connected to the wheels.
Road speed does not affect suspension noises like ball joints and spindles.
So it would be something like the brakes, axle joints or bearings, or something in the differential where the axles come together.
If the truck is 4wd you have front hub bearings behind the brake rotors, and regular bearings if it is 2wd.

Grinding noise front end left side at highway speeds and when turning wheel back and forth at high way speeds


Sounds like front wheel bearings.
Does the sound go away when swaying one way or the other?
If you way left and ot gets louder it should be the right bearing and opposite for swaying right

Undue pressure on the hub bearings on a 1997 Cavalier


ok so I have a 97 chevy Cavaliar convertable. And when I first got it, it was making a grinding sound when ever I drove it. the sound seemed to be coming from the passanger front tire and when I would turn right the sound was still there but when I turned left the sound would go away during the turn. Well naturally I thought the bearing was going out on the side. so I bought a new one it came pre lubed and put together, in the box was also a spacer it just looked like a metal disc. well when I went to put the new bearing on the car who ever had done so previously had left the spacer off. i wasn't sure were that spacer went but I tried putting on the front and it fit so i just finished and put it back together. to my surprise the grinding was still there. after many surfing and calling around I discovered that the spacer was ment to go behind not infront once I changed that and yes it was a pain in the *** i put the car back together and car was like new. hope that helps
