Boy, get this checked a.s.a.p. Can be bad brakes or a bad or worn out c.v. joint on the axle. Check complete front end, ball joints tie rod ends for any play as well. There should be no play at all. Must jack up the vehicle close to the wheel to check the ball joints. Use a bar to try and move the wheel up and down, then in and out from the top. Any play there means time to get them replaced.

SOURCE: i have a 2004 toyota

well most likely problem is the rubber bushings on the track bars or mounting bushing for the struts are worn and dry rotted they will cause the squeaking when cornerring and when braking because of the momentum of the body moving back and forth. with so many miles on the vehicle i would have them replaced... please rate this thanks

Here is the Technical Service Bulletin that maybe of help, worth looking into but can't guarantee that it would fix your problem Steering - Steering Column Clunking When Turning TECHNICAL Bulletin No.: 01-02-32-001P Date: November 25, 2009 Subject: Clunk Felt/Noise Heard From Steering Column, Steering Gear and/or Front Of Vehicle During Turning Maneuver and/or Steering Wheel Rotation (Replace Intermediate Shaft As Directed) Models: 2001-2004 Buick Regal 2005-2008 Buick Allure (Canada Only), LaCrosse 2000-2008 Chevrolet Impala 2000-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue 2004-2007 Pontiac Grand Prix Supercede: This bulletin is being revised to add the 2008 Buick LaCrosse/Allure. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 01-02-32-001O (Section 02 - Steering). Condition Some customers may comment on a clunk type noise coming from the front of the vehicle while driving during a turning maneuver.

1. Locate a large area (parking lot) where the vehicle can be turned in a tight circle. 2. Turn the steering wheel to the right and/or left all the way to the steering lock, then off the steering lock a 1/4 turn. 3. Drive the vehicle approximately 5 km/h (3 mph) in a circle, preferably over rough pavement or seams on the road surface. 4. Drive the vehicle straight ahead at idle speed while applying and releasing the brake pedal. Listen/feel the steering wheel for the clunk/noise condition. 5. If a clunk is felt in the steering wheel, the MOST likely cause is the I-shaft - not the steering gear. Continue with the correction. Correction DO THIS - Replace the intermediate shaft DON'T DO THIS - DO NOT lube the intermediate shaft Replace the existing intermediate shaft

Clunk noise when turning right


Could be the drive axle, but may also be a shifting lower control arm or strut. Usually a faulty drive axle clunks every time the axle turns.

I have a 2004 corolla that has a humming noise in the front when turning to the right.replaced the right front wheel bearing and noise still there.any ideas?


It's most likely the left wheel bearing that's causing the noise, when turning to the right the weight of the car shifts to the left placing more load on the left wheel bearing and takes load off the right bearing.

Hi I own an audi a4 2004 Quattro, and i been having problems after i changed my break pads recently. Everytime i break, when going on low speed, there's a clunking sound coming from both, left and right...


um, clunking brakes when braking after you repaired them? EMERGENCY PROCEDURE REQUIRED Have the car towed to a reputable shop. Your brake pads or calipers or wheel are coming apart. they could fail while driving. This is likely very serious. Hopefully, it is just the anti rattle clips not holding the pads in place but do not chance it. Also, consider a mobile mechanic

could be the left fr wheel brg. but to be SURE, lift up car, spin the wheel, when you are spinning the wheel, grab the coil spring on thr strut. it should fell smooth,compare both sides, if its a wheel brg you will feel the roughness through the spring. a lot of mechanics will even replace the wrong brg, but this method nails it every time. ; )

Chevrolet impala 2002 wheel noise


If it's a clunking noise during turns and manuevers, it is probably your intermediate steering shaft. It is a known problem, and is easily fixed if you have a bit of patience. The proper way to fix it is to remove the shaft (the shaft that links your steering wheel to the rest of the linkage for steering) and cram new grease into it until it is squirting out the other end. This will fix it for a few years or permanently. A short term fix, which is easier and does not require any removal of parts is to get a can of spray stuff (I can't recall what it's called, but there are a few out there) which is basically lube, pull away the boot that coveres the shaft and spray most of the can into it. This will fix the clunk also, but for a shorter period of time. If it comes back, you will need to repeat the spray, or get it re-worked correctly.

2004 clunking noise thru steering!


Its probably the intermediate steering shaft. The shaft where it goes thru the firewall is known for clunking on these trucks. GM makes a lube kit to fix the noise. I don't have the part number handy, but the parts guy at the local dealer will know what you are looking for.

Good Luck
