I hear small thumping under car near front when I turn steering wheel I hear small thumping I feel small bumping at 55-65mph


ensure your wheel nuts are secure.
check your tyres for stones /nails etc

If you hear sound when you turn the wheel but the car is stationary
I would advise you visit a tyre /steering /brake specialist if you cannot locate the source of the noise.

Rear thumping noise


probably shocks have someone bounce to get noise going and put your hands on suspension parts you should feel the bump as well this will narrow down

When I go over a small bump or any change in the road, I hear a small but incessant squeek. I can not locate the noise but i assume it is coming from the suspension.l David


It is hard to find squeeks, It could be bushings, struts, tierods, balljoints, even engine and transmission mounts. The worst one I found after five other people they said was in the dash. vynil was dry and most everytime you hit a bump it would squeek. I sprayed it down heavily with armorall and cured the squeek. Good luck

Front suspension noise-dull rattle-thumping sound,bumpy roads


look at the front lower engine mount. I had similar noise which has been driving me nuts, thought may be thesway bar links, put it on friends hoist and saw that the front engine mount (mounted to bottom of lower radiator support) was cracked and the rubber bushing inside very worn with pieces missing. odd thing is that reving, or putting into gear never caused it to make a noise, just certain bumps. I ordered part from Autozone,hopefully it gets here before the holiday week end is over.
Good luck

A BEARING MAKES A GROWELING NOISE.
BRAKES WOULD MAKE THE NOISE WHEN APPLIED.
THUMPING MORE THE FASTER YOU GO, LIKELY A TIRE THAT IS SEPRATING.(NO LONGER ROUND)

If it is a continuous thump (ie thump, thump, thump) that changes in speed with the speed of the vehicle it is likely related to a tire problem.

If it happens when you hit a bump or immediately afterwards it is likely due to something loose or worn out in the suspension.

If it happens somewhat randomly and doesn't seem affected by bumps it may be a loose piece of trim, or something loose under the car getting knocked around by the winds.

Thumping noise


Ball joints, motor mounts, sway bar link rods? Hard to say without actually hearing the noise, but an experienced Volvo tech should be able to diagnose this pretty quick.
