This is a broken tie rod and it probably the ball joint that has failed.

    Ball joints are not that bad.. about 30USD. What is going to be bad is the 200 or 300 in labor and alignment.

SOURCE: GRINDING IN FRONT END

This sounds like a major problem. I had the same issue with a different truck. I will tell you in all honesty that the front-end is blown. The noise will continue to get worse. Soon it will occur driving in a straight line. The carrier bearings are symptomatic of failure. Its safe to drive on for a while, but in the long run you can eventually snap the front end. But before you go on rebuilding or selling the vehicle drain the fluid and replace with new and see if the problem goes away after driving 8-15 times in a flat parking lot doing figure-eights.

One of my tires is straight and the other one is pointed outwards. the steering wheel is sideways as like im turning


The easiest way to do this is straighten the steering wheel first Brandon. Next is to walk to the back of the truck and eye ball the left front tire from a looking from the side of the back tire. If that one is straight ahead before or after you adjust it, Now check the passenger side the same way.When both look straight, now take a tape measure and measure the distance from the center tread on the right front tire to the center of the left front tire.Say its 61", now do the same behind the front tires. It might say 58". You want to end up with the front measurement being 1/4 of an inch smaller then the back.

One or more of your tires are no good.
How to check this is : hard to explain.. but will try.. Rub your hand on top the tire... If you are on the passenger side of car rub them counterclockwise and drivers side clockwise... If the tread is bumpy, it will make that noise... If the treads are smooth, then the tire or tires ar o.k.

I had a constant grinding coming from front passenger tire. Replaced Caliper and put the worn pads back on for a day, the constant grinding went away. It would still grind while braking,hitting a bump


It sounds like the brake pads are metal to metal, when you turn the flexing of the wheel makes them touch the rotor and grind. This can rarely be caused by a badly worn wheel bearing as well, have both brakes and wheel bearing inspected.

I have a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer. While driving STRAIGHT, not turning...there is a horrible grinding/rubbing sound coming from the driver side front tire. I had the wheel bearing replaced on the...


If its not the bearing and your Mercury is front wheel drive, it could be the "CV" joints.
It could be both....

Is the wheel rubbing the brake caliper?

Is something like the wheel well liner rubbing the tire(airflow pushing it into tire)?

Jack the tire off the ground and rotate it by hand. Push in & out at the top, sides, and bottom of the tire. Little or no play is considered acceptable. If you get a "clunking" sound and/or a lot of play the bearing(s) are bad. (If front wheel drive, chock rear tires, put transmission in neutral so you can rotate tire.)

Hope this helps.

Stuck with this problem


The front axle isnt disengaging completely. You need to probably replace the vaccum solinoid located right above your distributor on the firewall. To test you simply disconnect the two vaccum lines and splice them together. Then turn the 4wd on and see if all is normal.

Warning light for 4-wheel drive


I had this problem on my 1995 Montero. The 4-wheel-drive indicator lights wouldn't stop blinking when I switched from 4-wheel drive to 2-wheel drive. It turns out that I had a slow leak in one of the front tires. After I fixed the leak and made sure the pressure was the same in both front tires, the problem went away. 
This made sense to me because if one tire is much lower in pressure, it's closer to the ground, i.e. has a smaller radius, and therefore rotates more quickly. The manual says to drive in a straight line when disengaging 4-wheel drive but with the lower tire pressure on one side it was the equivalent of driving in a circle. 
You could try checking your tire pressures and see if that makes a difference. Hope this helps.
