Check which wheels you have against what you should have . Some holes in the wheel are tapered and will require a nut with a tapered face. Others are parallel and require a straight nut with a flat washer. Check that the holes in the wheel are not worn out of shape. If in doubt take it to a tyre shop and have them look at it as they have a range of nuts that will do the job or explain why the wheel cannot be repaired.

SOURCE: Rear Suspension noise on 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8

Check sway bar. On some models as suspension sags, sway bar outer ends will contact the body, leaving a mark or dent just above the end, causing a bang over bumps. Only way to correct this is to change springs or add a spring lift.

SOURCE: accessories belt is loose on 93' saturn sl2.

If I remember right, the tensioner has a preset spring in it.  You cant tighten it yourself the old fashion way.  You'll need a new tensioner.  When you put it in, use a torque bar with a 1/4" square end and torque on the spring until the belt slides over the pulley.

SOURCE: have 2002 ford explorer,right rear wheel feels

You need a wheel bearing....don't drive it. Tow it to a dealer.! Ford wheel bearings are cheaper than aftermarket.
250-300 dollar fix.

Engine is loud when driving and causing a vibration on passenger side

Wheel may need balancing, small quick job at garage. As for loud engine noise and vibration......miss firing cylinder, engines mount loose but more like something to do with exhaust manifolds leaking.
If you do one wheel, do them all...balance that is.
Good to check all parts of the steering bushes etc for loose rods.
One more simple check is to look for holes in engine heat shields and sound proofing. ............and check all wheel nuts are tight !
It happened to me, back from brake pad change, drove car home and the vibration really got my attention....I checked everything, except wheel nuts. I couldn't believe it could happen... but the *%$£" mechanic hadn't done up the nuts proper......small things can cause big trouble. Good luck

Changed rear bearing on 2001 Honda accord now it is tight and holding back when you drive

Is it the rear wheel bearing you have replaced?
If so, please jack up the rear wheel you fixed and try to spin the wheel by hand.
If it is tight, you will need to loosen the nut as it is too tight.
If it is loose, you may have your brakes too tight.
God bless your efforts.

Aveo noise when turning and breaking

Sounds like the wheel nuts are not fully tightened on the wheels.I would check that first.Some shops use a "torque" bar when tightening wheels which can result in loose wheel nuts due to rusty/tight/damaged wheel stud threads creating a false torque reading and loose wheel nuts.

How do you adjust the rear wheel bearings on a ford 350 with dual rear wheels

remove the 8 bolts from the axle, slide it out. bend the tabs that hold the bearing nut locks nuts on. there are 2 nuts that lock together with the nut lock. adj it to zero play, work it tight then loosen it. use a pair of chanel locks to work it tight than loose. stop it at zero play, you can feel it when its right! good luck and good day. sawdust46
