SOURCE: Squeek noise on front wheels when hit bump

The problem could be caused by a wheel bearing squeeling or the cv joint squeeling.

SOURCE: Front wheel shakes while braking

Several possibilities. Try stopping the car with the parking brake and see if you notice as much shimmy. While loose tie rod ends can cause problems, it sounds more like the rotors may need resurfacing. A worn wheel bearing could cause a problem. Jack the car up so the wheels are off the ground and see if you can move the wheel back and forth. Loose tie rod ends would also show up with this test.

I have a popping sound coming from my right back interior

Need more information than that. Could be a loose shock. When do you hear it most? When do you hear it least? Does it sound like a rattle or deeper thud? Could even be the exhaust hanging loose. You say interior but I'm guessing right rear. Is it braking ok?

1998 audi a6 2.8 quattro tiptronic doesnt work but auto still fine?

Google it - Check this LINK. If your horn or other steering wheel controls do not work, it's likely the clockspring - the device that transmits the inputs from the steering wheel into the wiring harness under the dash. Pray it's not, otherwise your Audi tech will be buying himself a new S4.

Rear brake drum on 2002 grand am how do i get it off

Make sure the parking break is off, has the cable seized? If the vehicle has been parked with the parking break on for a long time, the brake shoes can stick to the drum!!!!(yes they can hold that tight). If this is what caused the problem, you can try banging the wheel, while trying to reverse the vehicle (only if they are steel wheels), If not take the wheel off and work your way round the drum banging as you go. Other possible cause is a brake linning or linkage come off and jammed the drum, if thats the case good luck, you will possibly have to result to cutting gear and damage

When I reverse out with hard left wheel lock. I hear a thud? or something when I straighten up.

Possible front road spring binding due to upper tower bearing seized or stiff.

Maybe spring seat perch breaking up. Weld coming apart....dangerous condition. Many MBZ cars affected.

Have this checked out immediately due to possible safety hazard.

i would check that the emergency brake in the rear brakes havent fallen apart. i believe on this model there are shoes inside the hat of the rotor for the ebrake.

2004 ford freestar...I have a VERY high pitch noise coming from the drivers side wheel area. Took it to Midas and they checked calipers, rotors, bearings, brakes (still had 90%), CV...

Get a spray can of Brake disc quiet from Advanced Auto and coat the disc let set for one hour then take out and drive at the same time rotate your tires if the noise comes from a different wheel after rotating then it is your tire if it continues from your drivers side then your caliper needs to be removed and readjusted because the piston is not fully depressing.
