Front end click

There is a click sound from the driver's side front wheel of my 2000 Grand Am. It only happens when accelerating from a stopped position and sometimes when going slowly forward and turning the steering wheel. It is always one click only.

click noise on front wheel may also evident in
the suspension system when driving,these noises maybe produced by the springs and shock absorbers may either be a rattling noise or squeaks,Noises produced are usually caused by looseness of the parts, tightness of the parts and lack of lubricant.

tie rod end will need to be replaced. If there is more than one click than that would be ball joint.

When I accelerate forward from a comp stop my car makes a loud grinding/screeching by the front driver side. Once running the noise stops but until it catches speed it makes the sound. What is that?


It could be several things, and I'm going to assume that the vehicle is front wheel drive.

First possibility is the constant velocity joint on the driver's side is worn out.

Second possibility is the wheel bearing on the driver's side.

As to the shaking at 70+mph, you may have an alignment problem, or some issues with the suspension components on that side of the car.

Does the noise get worse when accelerating from a stop, and turning, at the same time?

Car is shaking when driving and makes clicking noise


CV joints will only click when the wheel is turned. Normally this is due to a torn boot and the grease gets EVERYWHERE in the front suspension.
The clicking could also be that you need to bend back your dust shield that goes behind your brake rotor. You could have hit it when doing the strut and it is making contact with the brake rotor.
As far as the shaking, this could be a number of different things. I would make sure the rest of your front end it tight. Check the ball joints, wheel bearings, tie rod ends, strut mounts, and wheels.

Whining noise progressively gets louder with speed


One wheel turning faster than the other is normal if both wheels are off the ground. If one wheel is dragging when the other wheel is on the ground, it could be brakes or a wheel hub bearing.
Usually if the noise happens on right turns, the left hub bearing is failing, and vice versa.

In a 1998 4x4 jimmy 4 door I am experiencing a vibration which feels like its in the front end. the only occurs while accelerating, but stops almost instantly after letting off the gas pedal. Vibration...


This could be a loose hub bearing causing the hub to move in and out .When accelerating the weight shift will be less on the front wheels so the hub may be moving in and out during this .Have this checked soon :)
