Question about 2002 Subaru Forester

1 Answer

Thumping noise from front-end

When we turn our 1998 Legacy GT (AWD auto), we feel a thumping noise that occurs once every tire revolution. I believe it is a CV joint and not the transmission since it happens in every gear (including reverse) and in neutral. One CV joint on one shaft was replaced already (don't know why they didn't do both?). Any ideas?

The one on the side you hear the noise from is most likely bad.
Also check the tires you may have a bad spot on one.

I have a 2006 AWD ford five hundred - has a thumping feel whenapplying the brakes - replaced both front wheel hubs - both front rotors and brake pads - still have a thump that co-insides with the spee


if you have mis-matched tires on your car fix that FIRST.

then re-analyze your problems then and only then.

if you have already taken care of this then you say a thumping and not a pulsating feel ???

Thumping, grinding noise comes from right front side


most likely a front hub [wheel bearing ]going bad but jack up front side that is causing problem and try to move tire in and out with hands at top and bottom of tire and listen and feel for noise or excess movement it to much movement remove tire an check the upper and lower ball joints as well as the shock/strut but check brakes grinding can also mean pads are metal to rotor but usually grinding and thumping is related to a bad hub

Thumping noise in the front end


Inspect your tires look at the tread, observe the wear across the tread, inspect the inner and outer side walls, look for bubbles, look at the rim look for damage. The more info you get the better.
