My front end seems to bind up and make loud grinding noise with clicking. It then goes back to normal. What could this be?

    No. When car is rolling whether with gas applied or not; while car is in drive.

Check your c/v joints on the ends of the front drive axles. a split or torn boot indicates that the joint inside has become contaminated with road dirt and has failed.

    Bet you a dollar the c/v joint is bad....did you even check or you just did not like my answer. Clicking and grinding are classic symptoms. Only other possibility but much less frequent is a bad hub bearing.

It sounds like you have different size tires on the front than on the back causing the t-case to bind up. If not, your having an engagement/disengagement issue in the t-case or the shift actuator for the t-case

Grinding noise in front end


Have the brake pads checked, if they are ok you may have a faulty wheel bearing.

What is causing my explorer to **** & clunk with a loud grinding or rubbing noise when i turn corners?


Sounds like you have either ball joint issues, or problems with the CV joints. The other possibility is a problem in the transfer case causing the front axle to bind. You can physically look at the CV joint boots to see if they are torn open and many times you can grab onto the axle and give it a good tug to see if it will move..it should not.

Loud clunk noise front front end when put into 4wheel drive. Also feels like binding when turning?


You have a bad universal joint. you have to take the spindle off to replace this. once the spindle is off you can pull the shaft out. the universal has to be pressed out and back in. As far as the binding, that is normal in close tolerance turns. you get it alittle more with bad joints.
