Dodge stratus grinding noise in front ???

It has jus recently rained and after going through a bit of water the car started to mae this grinding sound like medal on medal, it is a Dodge 2001 stratus and i know we need to get the backstruts done. this new sound is bothersome, we also have a power steering problem in cold weather I don't know if this is tied to it or not. This sound is loud and horrendous. It is really loud inside the car and pretty loud out side the car it happens mostly when turning but also when we hit a bump or go over a drain hole thing. any help is appreciated; the mechanics in my neighbor hood are shady and unreliable

SOURCE: 2002 Dodge Stratus Squeaks

I would check the lower control arm bushings and sway bar bushings for the squeak,and the shaken when breaking means you have warped rotors,if it shakes in the steering wheel its the frt,if the whole car shakes then it usaaly means it is in the rear rotorsor drums.

SOURCE: Loud clunking noise in 2008 Pontiac G5

HI, i would inspect the strut assembly for loose structure asap. i would also inspect the wheel knuckle and rotor and tie rod ends for loose fit as well. inspect thoroughly.

Its most likely the CV-joint assembly. the boot may have slipped off, allowing the joint assembly to dry up. i advise to inspect all the above before looking at the CV-half joint assembly and boot.

SOURCE: 97 dodge stratus power steering leak

I had a somewhat related type of problem with my 2000 dodge stratus. It had poor steering and handling on curves. After 55000 miles with this problem I decided to replace the brain box, not the TCM. Now it steers more easily and takes curves at higher speeds well. I was amazed because I avoided unnecessary costly repairs. Hope this helps.

99 dodge stratus real bad grinding noise in front end and its not the breaks

Only thin left is the wheel bearings failed or if front wheel drive then a failed cv /s joint. IF the bearings are faulty the grinding noise will be the disc rotor grinding on the caliper . Check out the front end and look for failed ball joints in the suspension.

When we are driving out 2004 dodge Stratus everything sounds good until we turn. When we turn we hear a grinding noise coming from the front of the car. What could be causing this?

More then likely its a CV joint, but most of the time it would be a clicking you'd hear. Do you hear a roaring sound when driving in a straight line? Its possible then it could be a wheel bearing and when turning the sound is more pronounced.

My 1995 Dodge Stratus is making a noise coming from the front end

Sounds like it is time for some ball joints. There is no way to grease them, and when they start squeaking, it is time for replacement. Do both upper and lower on the side that is squeaking.
