I believe you are referring to the constant velocity joints (CV joints)
they aren't that hard to replace. but somewhat involved.

Why does my Trailblazer 2003 4.2 i6 fell like it is going to turn of-(fells like a manual tranmsion) when i stop then press the gas realy lightly!? and why does it make a realy lound sound when i turn...

Was the battery recently unhooked or changed? Does this happen when you have the de-froster on or the A/C? If so, clean your throttle body with the battery unhooked. When finished, drive for 5 or so miles to let the computer reset. Problem solved.

Loud sound from the front right, could be your swaybar links, check these. If bad, replace with Moog end links that are greasable.

EEEEEE sound, could be a few things. First, check your hood stops, adjust up a half a turn and grease the heck out of the latch, common problem. The other thing to check is your lower A-arm bracket bushings. Spray with lube to isolate the problem. Also, could be the sway bar bushings.

Some things to check that are a common problem with TB's.

96 merc cougar. Front end clunking noise when you shake the car from side to side. Seems if you turn the wheel it stops. Hard to tell really what side its coming from. Any thoughts? I cant find anything...

this vehicle is known for suspension noises the most popular of which is the upper control arms but there is trailing arm bushings and ball joints that make almost the same identical sound. you can jack the car up on one side when the tire clears the floor hold the tire at 3 and 9 o' clock and rock left to right and feel for any play or lose feeling in the suspension it is supposed to be rigid the slightest play in any of these items you wont believe the racket they would make. do the same for the other side as well...then hold the tire at 12 and 6 o' clock and rock the tire up to down and do the same for the other side., if it is suspension bushings or upper ball joints you will find it like this. the lower ball joints however is a lil more tricky jack the car up on one side placing the jack under the lower control arm as close to the ball joint as you can go and jack till the tire is about 1-2 inches off the ground stick a bar under the tire and pry the tire higher off the ground and release repeat this till you can confirm weather there is play or not in the lower ball joint NOTE: it is best if you do this test with 2 people one to look at the ball joint while the other works the tire. for the trailing arm bushings you need 2 people for this one as well..... have someone drive the car forward 5 feet then step on the brake do it in reverse as well and step on the brake, fix your eyes to the back of the tire 3 o' clock on the driver side and the fender and see if there is excessive play. NOTE: the wheel is supposed to give a little but that is about 1/2 of an inch front to back any more and these bushings are bad.

1999 alero the front end makes noise like the wheel bearing or

if its clicking when you turn the wheal, then its a cv joint. If its making a bump bump bump noise as you go down the road and increases with speed and slows with speed then its probably a bering, It sounds like you have hit something and caused your ball joints to damage. take a board 2x4 about 2 foot long. jack up the car in the front, just enough to fit the board under the tires. At each tire lift the board and see if you have any movement in the wheal. The movement you are looking for will be up and down, not side to side. Your steering moves side to side. Your ball joints give you limited up and down rotation movement to allow your car to handle bumps. If its in access of an inch rotation then there is your problem. Depending on the car, I would probably look at salvage yards first then go to the part store and compare prices. Because some junk yards are chaging near new prices for used stuff. Also your struts may be shot also.

Clicking sounds

Clicking noises on turns may indicate that you have a broken constant velocity joint boot on the front axle. Check that and see if it is torn. It''s the black bellows-looking thing right behind the inner spindle. If it is torn, all of the grease has leaked out, and the clicking is the joint rattling.

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.

Slight knocking from off side front ,ive checked all bushes but cant find problem any ideas?

hi dieseldog
im dave
my only sugggestion is try focusing on the left front side of the vehicle instead of looking in the bushes.
now that joke session is over i would raise the car and place it securely on jackstands so both front wheels are off the ground and then put the car in gear.
go to the front and watch the wheels going around look for anything out of kilter.
if it is clicking sound and normally heard in turns then it is likely a bad cv joint.
if it is not i would pay particular attention to the tires looking for a bump on the treadwall of the tire or plys separating metal wires sticking out or a large screw head sticking out/embedded in the treadwall. also check that the sway bar is attached and that the pins where it attaches to the control arm are in good condition.
then check your tie rod ends for play or looseness
