If it is a clunk noise/feel then see that topic already discussed. Output shaft yolk to driveline issue. Replace output shaft yolk with nickel plated yolk. Chevy dealer will know the part you need.

SOURCE: rear axle bearings need replaceing I hear grinding

Go to Jeep and buy a bearings, seals, and collar. The bearing is held in place on the axle by a keeper collar. This must be cut off to get the old bearing and seal off. Use a wizz wheel to cut it and then whack it with a chisle

To get the axle out. Remove rear diff cover, and wheel and start taking apart. It's not a terrible job, but if you aren't very mechanically inclined, take it to a shop. Make sure you use the correct fluid in the differential.

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.

SOURCE: Rear axle removal

Remove wheel, remove rear diff cover, remove small bolt that retains spider gear cross shaft in the carrier. Push axle in, remove "c" clip on end of axle and remove axle from housing. Reverse to replace. Only problem you may have is that sometimes small bolt is broken inside carrier. if broken you will need to drill a tiny hole into it and remove with tiny "easy out" or other similar device.
Do not turn carrier when shaft has been removed or spider gears will rotate and fall out!

Why do I hear grinding noises while driving?

Hit in the rear axle may have damaged bearings or brake parts. Jack up the side you hear noise from, put on stand, then have helper rotate wheel while you look underneath and listen to see where noise is coming from. Use length of old fuel or heater hose, one end in ear, to locate exactly where noise comes from.

I hear a clunk in rear of my 2000 Nissan maxima

Noises like that can be a pain in the rear to fine. It could be something as simple as an item lying loose in your trunk or something more serious underneath the car like a suspension component.

Try bouncing your car up and down by hand and see if you can hear the noise and determine where it is coming from. Inside or outside or underneath the car. That would help in knowing where to start looking.

If not the first thing to do is check your jack and spare tire and make sure they are well secured and not the cause of the noise. Make sure the springs for the trunk lid are secure and the trunk lid hinges are tightly bolted to the lid.Then check all around, especially down in the fenderwell areas and behind the seat for loose items. You should also check for loose light bulb assemblies, gas feller neck, and even the lock assembly on the trunk. Oh, and check the rear speakers and package shelf.

If you find nothing inside the trunk then we'll assume the noise is coming from underneath the car. You'll need to raise the rear of the car up high enough to crawl underneath and then place jack stands to secure it. We don't want it falling on you. Also remove the rear wheels so you'll be able to easily see the suspension components.

But before removing the wheels, place your hands in the 6 o'clock position and wiggle the tire in and out. We are looking for any play in excess of say 1/16" to 1/8" or so. Anything more could indicate worn or out of adjustment rear wheel bearings which could cause our noise.

Look at the mounting points for the struts/shocks, the sway bar, and any other suspension components. If you see red rust that generally would indicate worn components and possible problems. Look at the rubber bushings at the mounting points, those are the most likely places for wear and noise. If they are cracked or missing that's your most likely culprit. And if you need to change one, just change them all because they are all the same age and will be in the same condition as the bad one soon enough. Check the struts/shocks for leaking oil. If they are leaking they won't stop the car from bouncing and can let it bottom out. Look at the rubber bumpers mounted most likely on the frame that are there just for that purpose. If they show signs of damage that is an indication of poor performing shocks, bad springs, or maybe just overloading the car. But it needs to be checked. Grab the struts/shocks, the sway bar and other suspension components near their mounting points and see if they move. Just like the wheels, a little play is allowable, but not a lot. If you need to use a long screwdriver of pry bar. Be careful not to dent the struts/shocks tubes.

Also check the exhaust system for signs that it has been hitting the frame, rear axle, bottom of the car, or some other components. There could be broken or missing exhaust hangers allowing the exhaust pipes to float around and cause the noise.

What you are looking for is something loose, broken, worn, or unattached that is able to make the noise you are hearing. If you don't find anything then your best bet is to go to a local garage that does suspension and exhaust work. If they sell tires that helps because they will be used to working on these kinds of problems and have the equipment to handle them. Good Luck!

Strange raddling noise from front passenger side

if the noise only happens when the vehicle is in motion...check the front suspension. place the jack under lower control arm ,then get a bar and lift up on the tire..ball joint issues are well known in blazers and cause this condition. if it does the rattle noise when its idling and to op temp--could be the cat converter causing the noise on pass side directly under passenger seat. when cold, smack the cat with rubber mallet and if any rattle is present, cat should be replaced so it dont cause further damage .hope that was helpful !!

94 accord banging/knocking noise when turning left

elf fi: I have a sneaky suspicion that you may have a bolt on a caliper missing. I might suggest that you jack the car up on the side in question and pull the wheel to look at the brakes. You don't have to be a tech to know if a part os missing, it should be obvious. The caliper is affixed to the car by two large bolts which go in from the back side. So you would have to look on the inside for the attaching bolts. There are two smaller bolts which attach the caliper to caliper mounting bracket, so make sure you look at both.
I have a method I had come up with when I was teaching collision repairs. I call it "SESAME STREETING". "what ever is on the left, should be on the right. Don't forget to make comparisons between opposite sides. Usually one should mirror the other. Most vehicle are symmetrical. Anyway, I would definitely be looking for a loose or missing fastener. Good luck.

2005 Toyota Corolla - steering column crunches

the reason why your hearing this noise is because your CV joints on your car is bad. CV joints go bad when the CV boots have a rip or a tear in them and little pebbles and debree from the road get into the bearings of your axle. Dont worry its not like this big expensive ordeal. What I do suggest is dont even ask about replacing the CV joints because it usually costs the same or even more than just replacing the axles. I know it sounds horrible expencive but its not. When you take your car in tell them you want to replace your front right and left CV axles, because there are two of them in the front. Most people think you only have 1 axle in the front but you technically have two. I find the cheapest way to do it is ordering the axles online. Then finding a job with the cheapest labor rate to put them on.

Go to Select the year, make and model of the car. Then scroll down to the Driveshaft and Axle section and click on Axle Assembly and order the parts from there. I made it a little easier on you, I already looked it up for you and the price

right axle is $99.95
left axle is $99.95

Now you say you get the crunching when you turn left and right so you will need both the left and right axles. Remember that the longer you take to replace them, that crunching noise will continue to get louder and louder
