Does it make any difference turning left or right? like if you are on the highway and changing lanes? does it change pitch? any difference braking or not?? the fr brakes and the wheel bearings need to be checked but you really need to be more specific to narrow the problem down.

this might help:
Here is the Technical Service Bulletin that maybe of help, worth looking into but can't guarantee that it would fix your problem Steering - Steering Column Clunking When Turning TECHNICAL Bulletin No.: 01-02-32-001P Date: November 25, 2009 Subject: Clunk Felt/Noise Heard From Steering Column, Steering Gear and/or Front Of Vehicle During Turning Maneuver and/or Steering Wheel Rotation (Replace Intermediate Shaft As Directed) Models: 2001-2004 Buick Regal 2005-2008 Buick Allure (Canada Only), LaCrosse 2000-2008 Chevrolet Impala 2000-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue 2004-2007 Pontiac Grand Prix Supercede: This bulletin is being revised to add the 2008 Buick LaCrosse/Allure. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 01-02-32-001O (Section 02 - Steering). Condition Some customers may comment on a clunk type noise coming from the front of the vehicle while driving during a turning maneuver.

1. Locate a large area (parking lot) where the vehicle can be turned in a tight circle. 2. Turn the steering wheel to the right and/or left all the way to the steering lock, then off the steering lock a 1/4 turn. 3. Drive the vehicle approximately 5 km/h (3 mph) in a circle, preferably over rough pavement or seams on the road surface. 4. Drive the vehicle straight ahead at idle speed while applying and releasing the brake pedal. Listen/feel the steering wheel for the clunk/noise condition. 5. If a clunk is felt in the steering wheel, the MOST likely cause is the I-shaft - not the steering gear. Continue with the correction. Correction DO THIS - Replace the intermediate shaft DON'T DO THIS - DO NOT lube the intermediate shaft Replace the existing intermediate shaft

My 2008 Pontiac G5 has a pulsating feeling if I'm driving in town


A bad tire will cause that sensation at lower speeds. Also a bent rim. Do you feel it in the steering wheel?

My 2004 Malibu maxx ls is experiencing a "whining" sound when I drive it over 60kms.... what could it be?


Sounds like it could be a wheel bearing. try turning right to left at speed in an s type of pattern this will side load the wheels and probably increse the noise one direction and reduce it the other. you may also feel vibration in the steering wheel.

I have a 2008 nissan armada that when driving over rough roads or expansion joints at more than 40 mph, the steering wheel shudders terribly and feels as if I am going to loose control


I would reccommend you go to the Nissan dealer and road test with either a technician or service advisor/manager to duplicate your concern.
