SOURCE: rubbing/squealing noise in front passenger side wheel well

Repeat the experiment and rotate wheels at same time. Might be just coincidence and it is actually a belt. My guess would be power steering.

SOURCE: I have front end vibration

just checked this out a while ago:



Wheel Hub Assemblies: Systems and Diagnosis of Worn Hub Assemblies & Bearings
Front wheel hub assemblies and bearings control the position of, and reduce the resistance of, vehicle wheels in contact with the pavement. When they fail, front wheels may not be kept in position and vibration and noise usually develop. Symptoms that normally develop as a result of these worn parts include:

  • A humming, rumbling or growling noise which increases with acceleration or as the vehicles turns
  • Vibration felt in the steering wheel, which changes with vehicle speed or as the vehicle turns
  • Looseness or excessive play in the steering wheel (especially while driving over rough road surfaces)
  • A loud, constant grinding noise when driving the vehicle (heard in the most severe cases of a wheel bearing failure)
  • Pulling to one side when braking.
  • Roughness - with the vehicle of the ground, roughness or vibration when rotating the wheel
  • Looseness - with the vehicle off the ground, looseness when wiggling the wheel back and forth (Looseness may also indicate a worn ball joint)
  • Excessive brake pedal play can also indicate sloppy or excessively loose wheel bearings
  • ABS failure in the system may be related to failure of the ABS sensor in the hub assembly or the internal sensor in the wheel bearing

SOURCE: Noise coming from front of car

It sounds exactly like a wheel bearing problem.The right side its seems would be the problem. When you turn right it puts more pressure on the bad bearing making it louder. I would suggest replacing both. If on is gone the other one isn't far off. Hope this helps

SOURCE: far to much steering wheel play befor tire reaction

Loosen nut on top of steering gear box. Tighten adjustment bolt 1/4 turn at a time then tighten nut. Drive and see if it hold together better. Repeat until you can't tighten adjustment bolt any more. If it's still iffy, replace your steering gear box.

My front passenger wheel makes a rubbing noise at 50 mph


You just need to have a mechanic or someone look at the front end. Has it been happening long enough to cause any odd tire wear on the tire? If the front end alignment is off, you could certainly get a lot more road noise, but even a badly worn tire would cause some noise.
If the tire is actually rubbing against something, and you hear it at 50 mph, that seems to indicate badly worn suspension parts- like ball joints or struts...so you should consider a good front end alignment shop and tell them the condition. They can check the tires and the front end as well. A reputable shop would check all that anyway, to make sure that the alignment job will actually keep the front end true.

I have a 98 dodge Durango 4x4.Ijust did lower balljoints, inner/outter tierods, both shocks on front end.When turning sounds like tires rubbing. Also when going in reverse? Also got some play in steer


Hi Robert, Your Tires are rubbing because its way out of track, You just need to check every joint and the work you have already done very carefully. As a guide you can run some fine string from the back wheel to the front of the front wheel with the steering wheel centred, do this on both sides, adjust both front wheels to line up with the string. You will still need to adjust for toe in or out when you have fixed the problem. Roy. UK.

I have rubbing on the inside of my drivers side front tire, the passenger tire is fine. normally i would think this was an alignment issue but only the one tire i have a problem with. The ware is on the...


What you describe is most often caused by a bad tie-rod end, which is part of your steering. This causes the clunking that you feel when you turn, and the tire wear.
Jack up the front drivers side and when the wheel is off the ground, try to force it left and right. If you feel any play in it, a tie rod end is bad.
To find out if it is the inner or outer tie rod end, look underneath and locate the tie rod for that wheel- it will look like a pole about an inch thick. Get somebody to move the wheel left and right like you did, and look on either end of the tie rod for which end is moving. That will be your bad tie rod end. The "outer" is the one by the wheel- the other one is the "inner". Most often it is the outer tie rod end that goes bad.
It is important to get a bad tie rod end replaced as soon as possible because it can separate and cause you to lose control of your car when the wheel will suddenly turn either in or out, depending on which way you are steering when it fails. After a tie rod end is replaced, your car will need an alignment to set the adjustment correctly. If you are changing it yourself, mark how far the old one is threaded in so your alignment will be fairly close to where it was.
Good luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

Noise when turning the wheel fully to the left or right.sounds like grinding.


check the inside of the wheel to see if it rubs on tie-rod ends and the tires for wear and tear. also verify what size of tires are recommended, too big the tires will rub on the inside of the fender

When going over 60mph car shakes


First thing would be a tire balance. Could be that the old weight fell off or a curb was rubbed causing a slight wobble.

My back tires are rubbing against the struts. I have checked the wheels and tires and both are correct sizes for my car. I can not figure out why the tires are rubbing the struts. The inside of the tires...


There are a couple of things that can cause this. worn parts used for aligning the rear wheels can cause it (they're kinda like tie rods, but don't tie the wheels together) or, the wheel bearings are going out. neither are extremely expensive, but are very important. The wheel bearings are the most likely, as they will allow the tops of the tires to tilt towards the inside. Jack up your car so that the rear wheels are off the ground. Can you make the wheel wobble all directions(even if only a small bit)? If so, then you need to change those rear wheel bearings.

When I turn there is a grating sound, both left and right turns--doesn't happen at low low speeds or on very easy turns. 2003 honda civic


It sounds like the CV joints need some attention. These are covered with rubber boots and if the boots crack they let in water and/or dirt which cause the joints to make a popping or grinding sound. Turn the wheels left or right and look under the car towards the inside of the wheels. The boots are right next to the back of the wheels. Look for cracks in the rubber. If you can, push on the boots and check for small cracks. If they are cracked, have them looked at immediately. The longer they go like that the more damage will be caused. Thanks for using fixya.

Alignment has alot to do with the tires not shimmying.. Like zero toe setting. Loose componants like tie rod ends and the idler ar worn. You can ck for excess front end play by holding the front and back of the wheel and pushing and pulling on it, like rocking it. OR have someone rock the steering while you watch where the play is from underneath. By rocking I mean turn the steering wheel back and forth. Look at all th joints and pivot points for excess play, which is, movement not immediate to the rest of the steering system. Tire balance is very important. Wheel hop is a sign of a bad tire and it overtaxes the shock absorber. Shocks don't cause shimmy because they are a vertical movement controlA shimmy is lateral or side to side.Wheel balance weights must be spit. If a 2 oz. weight is needed to balance the tire, Oe once should be on the inside of the wheel and one ounce on the outside directly across from each outher.. Loose wheel brgs will cause shimmy, but they would not last long. Caster setting on the wheel alignment will also cause shimmy. Like on a shopping car. too much caster causes the wheel to start fluttering and is very hard on other componants. This may be why you have worn tie rod ends and a bad pitman arm. Worn control arm bushings and ball joints directly affect titre wear and can only be feltwhen the front end hits a dip and detected by side wear on the tire edges. Summary: replace the tie rod end and have the car aligned. Good Luck, -Ned_ sorry about the book

Tires worn on the inside only


this is caused by a camber problem, camber is the tilt of the tire in and out, this can be caused by worn lower control arms, have them checked by a front end shop, they will in most cases do a visual check of the front end and give u an estimate for free, I know tire shops do this.
