Question about 2002 Toyota Avalon

1 Answer

I have an 1994 nissan maxima and every time I hit the brakes, or turn the steering wheel when I am backing up and hitting speed bumps the car makes a clicking sound. Almost sounds like when you scoot the seat up and it locks into place. The axle seems to be fine and everything is tightened. It only comes from the passenger side. What needs to be looked at?

Sterring wheel


check how to immobilise the air bag in the wheel first --- at the back of the steering wheel spokes you will find screws that when undone allow the padded section to be removed revealing the nut that holds the steering wheel on.. Pull the horn fuse as it will blow every time you move something. Mark the position of the steering wheel and use a puller to get the wheel of the shaft .

I have a Nissan Maxima 1997 model the tyres size are P205/65R15. My question is Would Kumho 352 with rims diameter "16 fits on them?


It is possible that they might work if you use avery low-profile tire on them. Take one of the wheels off of the front and place the wheel on the hub. Make sure that the bolt holes line up properly and that the center holeof the rim fits the shoulder on the hub correctly. Put a couple ug nuts on it and turn the wheel around to see if it is going to rub on the brake calipers or other components. If this is OK, then you need to choose some tires that will make the overall diameter of the tire and wheel assembly as close as possible to the overall diameter of the original tires. If your tires are too tall. they will hit the fender when you hit bumps or when you are turning. This will also affect the accuracy of your speedometer.

Front wheels shake when I hit a bump in road


Pitman arm and tie rod ends and bail joints.The three main causes of front end shake after hitting a bump.There's so much slop that when you hit a bump it shakes violently from one end of the slop to the other.Very dangerous!You need to get this fixed now!
Get someone to turn the steering wheel while holding onto a front wheel and just watch for stuff that moves.Turn left and right and you'll see what's the worst for wear.The connections at the steering box arm(Pitman) and at the wheels(Tie rods) will be what moves the worst.Hope this helps?Autozone has a kit for the pitman for $100,probably be $600 at a shop.

My feont wheels shake somrtimes when i hit a bump


Hi Tony,

There is a problem with either the the wheel integrity, the steering linkage or all the above.

This is a dangerous and potentially life threatening situation.

As someone who has lived through a ball joint breaking off of it's connecting rod, I can tell you first hand that a steering wheel that doesn't steer is no fun at highway speeds.

Please have your vehicle looked at by a pro.
If you drive it, drive it slow, but drive it to a mechanic.

1999 alero the front end makes noise like the wheel bearing or


if its clicking when you turn the wheal, then its a cv joint. If its making a bump bump bump noise as you go down the road and increases with speed and slows with speed then its probably a bering, It sounds like you have hit something and caused your ball joints to damage. take a board 2x4 about 2 foot long. jack up the car in the front, just enough to fit the board under the tires. At each tire lift the board and see if you have any movement in the wheal. The movement you are looking for will be up and down, not side to side. Your steering moves side to side. Your ball joints give you limited up and down rotation movement to allow your car to handle bumps. If its in access of an inch rotation then there is your problem. Depending on the car, I would probably look at salvage yards first then go to the part store and compare prices. Because some junk yards are chaging near new prices for used stuff. Also your struts may be shot also.
