Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
I have a similar problem with my 2000 Audi A6, 105,000 miles. I never noticed it before, but now i feel it when I go over bumps. Its not that loud, but it bothers me still. Its a clunking noise. Its definately coming from where the steering wheel and the tires link....but i have no idea what that part is called. I stuck my hand over and through the tire and had a friend turn the steering wheel around a bit and i felt the clunk myself from that part. I know i should get it checked out, but I cant afford it right now because its not under warranty. Does anyone know if this is a problem I could fix myself? And is it dangerous to drive around like this?
Could be the ball joint. They are really easy to change it thats your issue. Jack the car and remove the tire. The ball joint will usually have three bolts or nuts holding it on strut. There is one tapered shaft that goes through your wheel hub assy and is held on by a castlated nut. Pull the hub back and forth and watch the ball joint. If it has movement then you need to replace it. If this helps let me know. Also if you need more info get back with me. thanks
