Check your tie rods and the drag link bar which controls the steering. Have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth while you are underneath and you should be able to pinpoint the noise location.   I had the same problem on my 2001.  Replaced the lower tie-rod ends and also the ones on both sides of the drag link. This solved the problem.  Whether you do this job yourself or not, you will definately also need an alignment upon completion.

SOURCE: cv joint for a 1992 subaru legacy

Ok here's a couple helpfuls before i start if you have PB Blaster, that works great on spindle bolts. Another thing you will need is a long pry bar (maybe a crowbar if you had to) with a flat tapered end. You will need to remove your tire, spray the PB Blaster on the axle nut, and the 2 spindle bolts going through the strut.remove the axle nut, and the 2 spindle bolts, and seperate the strut from the spindle. Then swing the spindle and push down on it as you remove the axle spline from the hub. Once you do that, check the transmission side of the axle, to see if it has a "doul roll pin" that you need to tap out with a hammer and punch, but it may be the simple locking ring internaly at the end of the splined shaft. Then all you do is pry it back, make sure you have a very firm place to use for leverage, and give it a hard shove and it should pop right out. or you may need to repeat the prying step a few times. When installing the new axle, make sure it's snapped in completely on the transmission side so you don't damage it. Then all you need to do is reassemble it all.
Also when doing this, make sure you support the car by the body, behind the front wheel under the fender/door area. you will need to let the lower controal arm hang to do this.
Hope that does it for you,
Good luck!

SOURCE: subaru cv axle noise?

Do you know if this car has ever been recked? if your going thru that many axels makes me think something is not running true, a wheel bearing would not make a cv joint in a axel go bad. Did you replace the axels? or did you have them done at a shop, and did you see the old axels after they were replaced. You got bigger problems than a wheel bearing. From what i can gather some thing is bent or your getting bunch of bad axels witch i dought.

What causes a knocking sound making a slow right turn


probably a cv joint.. you can try lubing it with a grease gun and a special needle for that purpose.. if it does not work you must replace it.. If the boot is torn and you live where it rains or snows replace the axel

HtsI have a 95 subaru impreza with a knocking sound It goes away when you put the clutch in


See if higher octane would solve the problem. It could be a timing issue or just a dirty sensor. If you can have these checked then the better. Some shops would let you borrow their diagnostic tool to see if there are error codes saved in the computer.

I have a 1988 Subaru L Series Touring Wagon with a busted CV Joint, i have the new part but not sure how to fix.........Is it a difficult job? Do you know where i could find a free guides or directions on...


If you are replacing the CV joint itself, you have spent too much money for one, and are in for more work than needed. I own a 1993 Subaru Loyale Wagon, front wheel drive (converting to four). I had to replace both sides when I got it, and it is so much easier to replace the drive axles rather than the CV joint. I suggest returning the part, and purchasing the entire drive axle. The drive axle will require the same steps : Remove brake system, knock out pin in drive axle near tranny, and pull the drive axle out. Insert new drive axle, replace pin (if new one is not provide, this is okay.) and re-assemble brake system.
If this is not feasable for you to do, and replacing the CV joint is your only option, then go to the the auto parts store and ask for a CHILTONS manual for your car.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

I had my cv joints changed out and now my knocking sound is worse


Is the knocking only on turns from the front and it is a fast continual knocking?
If the installation was correct.......sounds like the CV joints are possibly defective.
When changing CV joints.......always put in complete shaft assemblies that use NEW joints....not rebuilt joints.The price is almost the same.

I have a 1991 Subaru Legacy right hand drive wagon. I put in a new front axle assembly and I still have a knocking sound. Everything I have read with that sound says it is the cv joint. Someone told me it...


A CV joint - when going bad - is more of a clicking sound.. Not so much a knocking sound.. And tends to get louder when turning & accelorating..

Hope this helps !!
Rate me good ;o)

Knocking sound


maybe cv joints. check cv boots to see if torn or look out for grease marks in the area behind front wheel. This would be more clicking noise though and not banging.
