Hi Willis,
It seems to be that the problem is with the ball joints of your car. Get the ball joints replaced asap. It will be a small repair.
If you ignore this, your rack ends, tie rods and camber will be have to replaced. That will cost about 200USD.

If the front of the car doesn't make a "Dug DUg " noise when going over small pot holes, then you will have only replace the lower ball joints.

After getting repaired I will suggest that you do a wheel alignment.
Also inspect for any uneven wear of tyres. That is also a good sign for the balls joints to be replaced.
Hope this was helpful

Brakes make a whistle noise when applied and sometimes a low grown or grinding when coming to a slow stop or start.


A grinding or rumbling noise can also be symptoms of a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint in a driveshaft. A worn wheel bearing can also cause a 'whistling' sound (as can a worn CV joint).

A grinding noise with brakes is either worn pads causing metal to metal contact on the brake disk/rotor, or the brake backing plate catching on a spinning rotor ... or a loose/missing anti squeal brake shim (they stop the pads from rattling and vibrating).

However, as you say a mechanic has looked at the brakes and can't find anything wrong .. I think I would begin to suspect a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint on the driveshaft (front wheel drive cars).

2006 Cadillac DTS makes noise when the wheel is turned, noise started after wheel bearings were replaced in the two front wheels


If it's a "squealing" sound - check the power steering fluid. If it's more of a grinding sound - then the wheel bearings were not properly "packed" with grease. Note - the grease needs to forced into the bearings by hand while rotating the bearings. I had a this problem myself when a "mechanic" just smeared some grease around the bearings.

My 2006 Malibu steering wheel is going bad.


The power steering is electric on that car. It has a electric motor on the column, and a control module. There are several causes that could be the problem. You need to have it scanned to get a better idea of what to do. If you can give me the codes you get then I will be glad to advise you on what's best. Good Luck
