Is it more a dull thudding than a rattle if so its your bottom ball joint that needs replacing.Its easer to buy the whole arm as it comes with the ball joint attached .It could also be the sway bar drop link have a look it mite be snapped .Its an easy job to do and you can buy them for around 20 bucks a pair

On A 2003 Pontiac Montana AWD, What could cause vibration in the front end while accelerating a right hand turn?


Left wheel bearing or either CV axle,(left or right) Axles usually make the vibration turn left or right. Bearings will get loader turning. When you turn right, the pressure is on the left side.

One of your CV joints are bad, inspect which CV joint needs to be replaced. Roll your windows down and make tight right and left corners in an empty parking lot slowly and listen for the clicking noise. If it's coming from the passenger side window or the drivers side window, which ever side the noise is coming from is the side that the CV joint has failed and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using FIxya and replacing the front wheel bearing improperly buy hammering the CV joint out instead of using a wheel bearing puller will cause damage to the CV joint as to what you have described. Good luck and keep us posted.

Low growling noise in front end


typically, this sounds like a wheel bearing. To test, the noise can often be altered by accellerating /decelerating, and more evident by turning the vehicle.

The truning process is to put load on one side, then the other. if the right side has a damaged bearing, for example, the noise would be noticibly altered (less in this case) when turning to the right. Load would be slightly less. Testing speed in the area of 25 to 35 mph.

Noise under right front of hood


This is pretty hard to diagnose without being there. I would suggest that you take a hose with ends cut off and listen through it, since you are mechanically inclined. I would also check things that may be rattling against the firewall, the exhaust system for rattles as they tend to do so when bushings are worn out, and recheck the things you have if you haven't done so with hose or stethescope. I had a similar problem that was a loose exhaust bushing... Hope this helps you, Rick
