Check your powersteering fluid level... it can make a horrific grinding noise if left thirsty. Hopefully that's all it is!

The clunking noise is now a grinding noise in the front driver side. I am told that it is a part attached to the steering box component.


Get it to a reputable suspension shop to have it checked out,if it was said a part on the steering then you don't want to risk losing steering when the worn parts break.Speculating it could be tie rods,sway bar links,ball joints,bushings etc etc everything that moves when you hit the bumps.

2003 Chevy Silverado is making a clunking noise, on and off sometime over bumps. Also a deep grinding type noise in the same location while driving not constant


Hello Karla,

It sounds like you may have a bearing or CV joint going out. Your vehicle will need to be jacked up and inspected. It may be more than one problem too. Its possible the dragging noise could be something between brake pads and rotor, but the grinding that comes and goes in reference to direction sounds like a bearing or joint. I would take it to a professional right away and ask for an estimate only, and then get other estimates from other shops as well. Good luck to you.

Power steering went out in 202 kia sadona, before


the power steering and bering are 2 seprate issues just be sure its not your rack and pionion that did not go bad as the inner tierod is connected the the rack and the power steering pump if the seals go out on the rack it can cause your power steering to go out and can also make the inner tierod loose wich can make a wheel vibrate. hope this helps

I get a grinding noise and slight vibrations that I can feel under my feet. This usually happens at low speeds, but has become more noticeable now at c. 30 mph.


You need wheel bearings.. One for sure maybe 2. Do you feel it in the steering wheel or floor? The floor usually means rear and the steering wheel usually means front. Hope this helps. It should change pitch when you drive left to right at a steady speed. :-) Cobra

2003 Dodge Durango clunking noise in front end can be felt in steering column ball joints,tie rod ends, control arm bushings,sway bar bushings replaced,shocks replaced steering column bushings checked all...


With the information given this is not a sure solution. Questions that need to be asked is when does this happen, turning at slow speedm high speed, when hitting a pot hole etc? Since you have replaced a lot of things already, assuming you have NEW good quality parts so you did not replace bad parts with new bad parts i would definitelu check the pitman arm. This runs from the stering gear to the tierod. It can give you some good clunks while steering, especially at low speed when there is a lot of resistance. Check it by having someone turning the steering wheel when watchin/feeling it.

Clunk right side front


A few different things can cause the same sound. My advise have your shop shake down the front end.

2003 Pontiac Grand Am SE 4 Door (Steering Clunking Noise)


Had the same problem. PONTIAC has issued a TSB that dealer know about. The Engine is MIS-ALIGNED and needs add'l rods to be installed to fix this problem. This will be done AT YOUR EXPENSE. I found this out the hard way.
Best of Luck

Clunking and grinding noise


My 2003 F150 Supercrew would not engage in 4x4, it ended up being the shifting fork in the front end, cost me $200.
