It is a wheel bearing issue. consider servicing your wheels and brakes.

I just got one to replace the Toyota Camry for my wife. It makes more noise than the Camry while driving it, in part, because of the tires thread. But if it is too noise, more likely is a cv join or a wheel bearing. This one had the two cv joins bad and made that noise; they were replaced and now the noise is different, and it is just because of the tires thread, and because they use big tires. But they are very good cars. Hope you will get it fixed soon... don't sell it, fix it. By the way, in my Rav4 the cruse control doesn't work, and I can't find the fuse... if you can help me, shoot me an e-mail: hermessoto@yahoo.com

Differential noise


indicates axle bearing failure rather than diff problems
diff failure is indicated by a growling noise on acceleration or deceleration or a constant harmonic hum while driving at a steady speed
from your description of where the noise is most pronounced indicates wheel bearings

Black the rear wheels, put the car in neutral with the parking brake on, jack up the front end and spin the tires. Once you locate the source of the noise, you can pull the tire off and check the brake pads and rotors.

2001 Blazer has vibration, Can feel vibration through the steering coulmn and floor boards. Sounds more pronounced on drivers side of car. Sounds less when making right turns. No noise when standing still....


You didn't say whether your blazer is a 2wd, 4wd, or awd. It sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. If it's an all wheel drive, it could be the CV joint. You should also check for loose lug nuts and low tire pressure.

sounds like c/v axles (front drive shafts) they will make a clicking sound normally when turning sharp and accell at the same time at slow speeds / look at the axle boots and look for grease on the inside of the front wheels leaking out the axle boots
