Your front "ball & socket" joints are in dire need of lubrication. You need to do this:
Take the tires off, and look for a fill plug behind the hub, on the housing, above the ball & socket. Remove the plug, and fill it up with 80-90 gear oil. Replace the plug, do the other side.
What you have is a dry joint, and the clicking noise is coming from the u-joint (actually called a "Rzeppa" joint), inside the ball/socket/hub...a good lubrication will eliminate your condition. Hope this answers your question, please feel free to comment back with any other questions...And, thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hello. A vibration in the steerign wheel indicates an issue with the front tires. They are either out of balance, and would need to be rebalanced, or it is possible (although remotely) that the tire(s) may be compromised (after hitting a pothole), the belts in the tire may be corrupted. What I would suggest is to take the car to a reputable tire place, and get the balance checked. While the tire is on the balancer, the Tech will be able to see if the tire is out-of-round due to possible road damage. Probably just a tire balance problem. Thanks for choosing FixYA for assistance.

You've bent either the rim or the steering arms. You can't "straighten" the bent parts. Take it to a repair shop for part replacement. And soon before you have a steering failure and an accident.

Steering jumps left or right while driving. WHeels and tires are ok. I hear there are problems with the steering pump wiring.


You need to have your speed sensitive steering sensor checked out. What is happening is that a relay adjusts your steering based on the spped you are going. I have has the same problem, and it wasn't noticable at low speeds, but as you increased speed, it would cause the vehicle to jump left or right, as if you were intentionally swerving a pothole. Have a good mechanic look at it and it shouldn't be to costly. Good Luck.22

Breaking noise in the front wheel


it could be the joint in the c/v axle. or it could be that you have something loose in the steering linkage. i would not advise you to drive it until it is inspected. better safe than sorry.
