2005 trailblazer knocking sound front drivers side wheel when accelerating only

First check wheel bearing. Jack front end up lifting tires off ground and see if the wheel moves by pulling on the sidewall part of wheel from top and pushing bottom towards the car does this back and forth if there is play, wheel bearing could need replaced. Take tire off and check for loose brakes, loose calipers, loose dust shields , etc. everything except rotor should be tight.

Front driverside tire wobbling and very unstable lug tight

Check the wheel hub bearing, jack so the wheel is off the ground, if the wheel can be moved in any direction 360 degrees, then the bearing is bad. If the wheel will move by pulling up and down then it's the balljoint, just back and forth, it's ths tierod.

Vibration under load at any speed. felt thru steering wheel. Was thought to be caused by the 2 discs on jack shaft. they were found to be very ''chewed up' and were replaced but vibe. continues. latest...

does the vibration stop when not under load, (coasting) Possible front axle shaft or hub bearing. hows the tire condition,no shifted belts or odd shape? notice balance weights missing? Is this a auto or manual, If manual do you feel more vibe in pedal or wheel? Jack front of car, assuming front wheel drive? Brace care with jack stands, block rear wheels, put car in nuetral, rotate front tires in both directions,each side, and listen,feel, look at all moving parts. also move tires in and out at the nine and three o clock position,(as if the tire was turning right and left) help is great while doing this as it allows you to be under car and visually inspect steering components,tie rod ends and inners. grab tire at six and twelve o clock and try to wiggle back and forth, grab a 2x4 and put under each tire and have helper pry up and down. you will be checking for upper ball joint slop. this should give you a good idea of what the problem is. Hows the motor mounts?

I have a wobbly wheel, how do i fix it?

You need to check the hub bearing and the lower ball joint on the vehicle and make sure they are good. If you can jack the vehicle up and can grab the top and bottom of the wheel and wobble it back and forth then the bearing is possibly bad. If you can grab the front and rear of the tire and move it back and forth it could be the tierod end you can have someone watch the parts while you move the tire.

Saturn SL1, growling and vibration coming from right front wheel,

Might be a hub bearing. Those make a growling noise when they are bad. When it is on jack stands you should be able to put your hands on the top of the tire and the bottom of the tire and move it back and forth. and the same with putting your hands on the right and left side of the tire. if you can and it moves back and forth then the bearing is back. but becarefull not to get the movement confused with a bad ball joint or tire rod. which could also be your problem but they dont make a growling noise

Vibration in right front wheel. i think i either have a bad drive axle or hub bearing. usually when coming to a stop i feel the vibration

Easiest way to check and see what the issue is. Jack up the front end of the vehicle and support it on stands grab the top and bottom of the wheel and move it back and forth check to make sure it is not in the lower ball joint, if it moves back and forth very freely it is either the bearing or the lower ball joint. Grab the front and rear of the tire and move it watch the tie rod end and see if it has slack in it the other wheel should move as much as the one you are moving.
