Question about 2002 Chevrolet Venture Passanger
We are experiencing noise and a lot of vibration from the front end of our 2002 chevy venture. We replaced the front brakes July 08, left front wheel bearing July 08 and the right front wheel bearing April 09. I can feel the vibration in the steering wheel and on the floor of the vehicle. It can barely be heard until we are driving approx. 60 km/h. Then the noise and vibration drastically increases. Our tires were purchased in the fall/winter of 07 and we put approx 15, 000 kms on our vehicle per year. THe tires have been rotated every 10-20,000 kms. The mileage on the van is 162,000 kms. If (while driving) the steering wheel is moved slightly to the right you can really feel the vibration. The sound seems like it is coming from the drivers side, but feels worse when you turn right.
Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.
