Sound by your description that your CV joint has gone bad and will need to be replaced as soon as you can. Once your CV joint fails 100%, your going to have to get the car towed to a repair shop. Save some money and have the CV joint replaced be fore you have to get it towed in to a shop or at worst, get you stranded some place where you don't want to be. Be safe and call around for prices to replacing the CV joint. Good luck and keep us posted.

Put vehicle on a lift and do a visual inspection. Use a long pry bar and pry on suspension parts that are effected when your making a left turn. Anything that is worn replace. Don't forget alignment if your doing job yourself. If your sending the job out to a shop tell their Suspension Tech the problem.

Everytime I turn slowly I hear this creaking sound. The ride is smooth my steering wheel is great. My power steering is capped off. I dont know what the problem could be. I don't hear it right off when I...

I had a similar problem on my 2002 Escape, but it was also creaked when cold. It turned out to be an outer tie rod joint. It may also be a lower ball joint. My creaking would happen when turning the steering wheel even a quarter turn. I reached behind the tire and put my hand on the tie rod while my wife slowly turn the steering wheel back and forth. I could feel the very obvious vibration. Try the other side to see if you can feel the difference. Can you hear it when standing outside the car, and tell which side?

Engine and front end vibrates on right turns on 2003 stratus

that is likely one of the constant velocity joints or the rubber boot on it. quick test is to turn slowly to the right in an empty parking lot and listen for a clicking sound. repeat in a slow left hand turn.

Steering creeks when turning left or right. front wheel noise.

My advise is when u get a humming noise when banking left or right. Its beter to change both left and right wheel bearing and ball joints. Cause if u think about it those parts are put on at the same time . So if u think about it they have the same where in Terre . left or right hope this helps you.
