It sounds like the CV joints need some attention. These are covered with rubber boots and if the boots crack they let in water and/or dirt which cause the joints to make a popping or grinding sound. Turn the wheels left or right and look under the car towards the inside of the wheels. The boots are right next to the back of the wheels. Look for cracks in the rubber. If you can, push on the boots and check for small cracks. If they are cracked, have them looked at immediately. The longer they go like that the more damage will be caused. Thanks for using fixya.

It sounds as if you have some bad wheel bearings...however, also have your front end checked as well as this could be a faulty front end component as well, like a ball joint and one more idea, i have encountered sometimes that if your brakes are bad and grinding metal to metal, you will experiece the same things....so, have front end, and wheel bearings checked, and remove your wheels and check your brakes...i'm positive you will see someting for sure...

Check the wear on your tires and check the tire wells to see if maybe the tires are rubbing on the wells when you turn. If that's happening you will definitely see it.

If you don't see that, have a mechanic look at your tie rod ends, struts, pittman arms and cv (Constant Velocity) joints.

Wheel rub at high speeds.


It sounds like a bad bearing on the right side hub. you can check this by raising the front of the car till the tires are off the grond. Grab the tire and try to wiggle it up and down and front to back if there is any play replace the bearing. check both sides
