I have owned two 1994 grand prix's and both developed the same problem you are refering to.
i have to agree with the last solution, if the rear is sitting lower, it's time to look at your rear struts. BUT... the GM used a fibreglass monoleaf transverse spring in the rear and the fibre glass spring is suppose to sit on a nylon cushion on both knucles. on both of my vehicles i had the nylon cushion fall or get knocked out. the parts cost about $20.00cdn and can easily be installed without removong the spring. In both cases it solved the sound of metal on metal rubing sound. I also changed the rear struts soon after i replaced the cushions because i noticed they were worn.

hope it helps cheers!

The steering seems to wonder in low speeds especially when you hit a bump or the middle white line


Your front end alignment is out. It could be something as simple as a toe setting that needs adjusting. It could also be caused by worn or damaged front suspension parts. And, you can't rule out low tire pressure. One extremely low tire,esspecially if it is a rear tire will cause the car to wander. If the steering is pulling to the right or left, it could have a bad radial tire. If a radial tire goes bad, it loses it's grip, causing the car to pull toward the good tire. Unless it's on the rear, in which case you would not feel it pulling, rather it would be more like the rear was slipping or "fish-tailiang". If the problem came on suddenly, and you haven't hit any curbs or huge potholes, I would think it is a low tire. If you don't find a low tire, then you need to get to a front end alignment shop. Make sure they inspect the suspension for worn or damaged parts.

I have a 2001 Silhouette. I have a noise in the front end that sounds like a wheel bearing going bad. It increases in loudness with speed. At low speed it can't be heard at all but at around 50 to 60 it...


I have a 2002 Olds van and it also makes a noise under the front driver wheel well. Mine was mostly when I hit potholes or large dips causing the shocks to compress. The problem is a metal to metal contact between a bushing lip and the suspension. On this side, the bushing is manufactured opposite of the passenger side. The lip is up and causes the two metal pieces to rub. I had to grind down the lip so it would be like the other side. All is better now. I'm not sure if this is where your noise is coming from since it gets louder with speed. I would assume yours is a bearing. Sorry.
