Rear tire makes a cracking/popping sound when going over speed bumps

Sounds more like its one of the many bonded rubber bushings on the rear suspension is giving up.
While someone is looking at that get them to check the rear hub/bearing.

Loud Thumping noise while driving but not bad tires

could be lots of things. why not get live help.

we are blind here and can\'t hear, it feel it or touch it.

we use an electronic stethoscope to find all noises hard to find

or dangerous to find, by other means.

if it only makes noise, moving that be, dangerous.

i guess you never jacked up a wheel and spun it by hand?

or grabbed it by hand 3 and 9pm and felt the play>

this is 1 test if many testd. to find noise, all inspections.

bad bearings do as they want, ! sound wise.

bearings that have play are a good sign of bad. we check that first.

and there are like 10 levels of bad. there. so.? and 10 noises....

no mileage on car stated? 50k or 200k?

or if you ever get it serviced, do you?

finding noise causes is an art

even the FSM has noise page for cars. many do.

there are 3000 parts on the car, any can make noise moving.

finding it takes skill and tools and PPE and safety precautions.

i\'d take this car to a suspension and brake shop

not just a brake shop,,

they will find this easy.. I promise.

if not post.

lets see.

  • brake issues

  • suspension issues or damage

  • U-joints or CV if applicable.

  • wheel bearing noise.

  • tire noise.

  • Loose parts anywhere on car and making noise from normal driveline vibrations... (sympathetic vibs)

  • tranny noise.

  • transfer case noise.

  • loose exhaust parts.

  • axle noise. or axle gear noise or LSD noises. or?

the first step is to find the exact location

and the stethoscope, rules this world. 100x.

hope that helps.

My 1996 Chevy Suburban is experiencing low, intermittent noise and vibration that can be felt through the steering wheel and seats. This only occurs at 50 to 55mph and not constant like an unbalanced

possible wheel bearing at fault. if it heard/felt more when turning or swerving and is a growling type noise, more than likley is. possible bad tire shouldnt be over looked. is abs light on? most often when wheel bearing is bad a speed sensor ( within wheel bearing ) will go open, setting abs light. vehicle needs to be ran on a hoist to try and duplicate noise/vibration.

Front driverside tire hesitates when the vehicle starts moving

Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. These cars are known for that. It could also be a bad CV joint [axle] , but it won't usually make your wheel hop. Jack car up and try to move wheel top to bottom. There should be no play at all. Try spinning the wheel while it is off the ground, if it's a bearing, you will hear a grinding noise. If it's a bad CV joint, you will hear a clicking. Let me know if this was helpful to you, and until you get it looked at, I wouldn't drive it, as the wheel can fall right off if it's a bearing. Good luck

To address the first; did someone try to install a new radio? The only way that something could be hitting the inside of the wheel(with stock size wheels and tires) is if the ball joint was about ready to fall out and the top of the tire was hitting the struts coil seat. If this is the case, this is extremely dangerous. I can walk you through replacement of these components and you can save yourself some money. The lower ball joint is very easy to replace and runs about $25. Let me know.

2004 Chevrolet Malibu front end hum

I think your right that its a bad bearing or hub. If your feeling it in the gas pedal and the floor, its most likely the front. If you can find an empty parking lot, try to get up to the speed it starts making the noise, and turn left and right. With the extra load being put on each bearing from turning, that will tell you which side it is.
