This is a hard problem to describe, I know, and I will toss out a few possibilities. If the noise occurs when the car is accelerating, it can be motor mounts, or carriage mounts on front-wheel drive vehicles. Transmissions can bang into gear. Drive shaft u-joints can bang before they fail. C-V joints in front wheel or 4 wheel drive units can bang when worn out.

The exhaust system can break loose and bang on the frame. Brake calipers can rock in their mounts and transmit sound. Tie-rod ends can make a knocking noise on every bump you hit. There were recalls on gas tank straps for some Ford made units, so a loose gas tank can bang.

Banging noise


It sounds as though something is loose, probably in the front end. Check, or have a shop check the front end components or for any loose body parts that could be causing the nose. I hope this helps.

Loud banging noise right front wheel. shimmies ,can't drive over 25mph


I agree with the axle CV joint choice.
Could also be a brake or wheel bearing failure, but the CV joint is the most likely given the symptoms.

big bang theory.

Ok, I've never heard of this happening to someone. If you turn left or right and apply brakes there is no noise. That means that the front end is probably ok. If it doesn't seem loose that way.

If you have a Sears nearby take it to them so they can listen to this banging.

They probably won't charge to look at it.

Rough banging drive


if it's and SL or VR4 the carrier bearings on the propshaft( driveshave from front to rear on AWD) can get loose and cause a banging.
check for slop in the joints between the rear diff and the wheels. you really need to pull and push things around as hard as you can to find something loose enough. Also the whole rear diff is on a frame that hase bushings connecting it to the car so the busshings could have worn.
check the fluid in the rear diff for metal particles and make sure there's no slop in the diff. the propshaft going into the rear diff on the awd should have a small amount of play no more than 5mm.
