SOURCE: 2002 gmc envoy front suspension noise

Thanks for providing that information.
At 65K I would first suggest changing shocks. Yes, that is enough mileage to have them beginning to get "softer" which will increase suspension travel and noise.
Even though they may test good (usual test is jumping on the bumper to see how it responds after bouncing) but that really doesn't apply to shock/strut combinations.
I would suggest a higher then factory grade replacement shock. Do realize 60% of the weight for that vehicle is in the front.
Next, there is always some, what they call "spring seating" as a vehicle gets older. You will notice it more when the suspension is in a turn, going over a bump. The spring moves / rotates in the seat, and you will hear a sometimes loud popping or clicking noise.
Bushings are probably best left to the professionals, unless you happen to have a well equipped shop at home.Same goes for the struts. You will need a good spring compressor to be able to change them, and you will need to have an alignment done after changing them. Doing the bushings at the same time is easy once the struts are out.

Since it is 4WD you mine want to test the front CV joints also. If you have access to a lift, put it in the air so all 4 wheels are off the ground, and running it. Listen to each front wheel to see if you can hear any CV noise. Please be very careful doing this. Doing it incorrectly can result in injury.

What you want to do more then anything is take this a step at a time. When you hear a noise inside a car, it can sound like it is coming from one place, and you can find out later, it is somewhere else.

I think a Haynes manual is going to be a good guide for you on this problem.
Take you time, and be very careful doing this kind of work. If at anytime you are not 100% comfortable doing the work, consult a professional.
Sorry I can't be more help as a simple fix, but I'm limited diagnosing any further without have the vehicle at my access.

sounds like the wheel speed senser is not working properly when you are in all wheel drive the computer uses the brakes to keep the all wheels rolling at the same speed for good traction if one speed senser is reading that right side front wheel was going faster than the others it would activated that brake via the antilock brake system

SOURCE: Ticking sound

Gm will tell you this is normal lifter noise if it from the top of the motor. It could be from the exhaust but you would hear it from under the car more. I do not care for the responce from GM but they say it is ok.

SOURCE: 2003 GMC ENVOY DRIVER POWER SEAT WILL NOT MOVE

if it sounds like it wants to but doesnt, like you can hear the motor but it is locked up, here is a way to fix it.look at seat and see if it looks sort of cocked and you may have to straighten the seat by keeping rod in one side or other and spinning it until seat is straight. there are 2 flexy cables that run side to side and cause the seat to move. they usually have a black plastic coating on them.remove them both. with both off hit switch and see if you hear the motors.If so you should lubricate tracks with silicone spray or spray grease.put cables back into holes and it should work.the cable may give you a lil trouble coming out but just pull back and forth they wont break

I recently replaced the tire rod in the front of my car. now the car makes a screeching sound when i turn the wheel


Your front end is now out of alignment because the TR end has to be done by a alignment tech. I;m assuming that it's a louder tire screech in one direction more than the other,too.

I didnt know better and i ran a larger pair of tires on the front of my 2006 gmc envoy. when i tried to put the transfer case in auto the car started making a knocking sound. i turned it back to off right...


Did the car drive fine in 2wd? Sounds like you have a different problem with the transfercase. You can run bigger tires as long as they don't rub on the ball joints which may require grinding to make work. Trailblazer/ Envoy owners have put up to 35" tires on there with the same transfer case. Of course with suspension modification, but with the same transfercase and hubs.

I have a creaking noise coming from the front driver side when making turns at low speed. Also, the front driver side tire is wearing off on the inside. Kim


the tie road end + rack end is the main proplem for making your tire wearing off
the noisy at slow speed coming from tire
you can check that by make the tire free by putting the car on the lift then you catch the tire from side and try to move it (in-out) if its move that mean you need to change even tie road end or rack end or both

Screeching noise coming from driver side tire


The high pitch sound may come from the brake pads as metal parts hit the disc to signal the owner that it needs change. The metal parts gets exposed when the pads have worn out. The brake also has a hub to cover the disc. See if the metal plate is hitting it but this issue would appear when the wheels are in motion. Check if it is the belts, have the tension checked out. Other than that the bearings are the other items on your wheel that could cause a high pitched sound when you car is in motion.

Whooshing sound coming from front tire


Sounds like a few things. Flat spot on the tire. Something caught in the tread. Jack up the vehicle and turn the wheel by hand and see if you can recreate the sound, if you can you will find the problem.

Humming noise in the the front of my truck.


Did you try rotating the tires maybe front to back to see if noise disappears or moves with the tire? Otherwise maybe a wheel bearing.
