Have your brake checked, also check the backing plate in back of brake rotor, could have gotten bent while working on it. Good Luck

ES Lancer - vibration, dull grinding noise when turning right, even at low speeds. Intensifies as I approach 30+mph. Replaced CV Axle, Tie Rod End, Bearing, and Hub. No dice.


Turning right and having a loader noise, means the left/drivers side is bad. Turn right, more pressure on the left side. and vice versa.

There's a clucking noise coming from the front driver side of my 2006 Dodge Charger R/T. What could possibly need replacing if I already changed the tie rods and brake pads?


Stabalizer links. To check them you will need to have both front tires off the ground at the same time. Grab the stabilizer bar where it attaches to the link. Push up and pull down on the bar. If you feel any movement replace them. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

I have a 2000 dodge dakota 4 wheel drive . recently i have noticed the shaft coming out of the front axle on the drivers side has play and making the tire wear weird . i noticed the seal is shot on that...


i am not sure just what shaft you are talking about,i think you mean the outer tie rod end and the seal you mean is the dust boot on the tie rod end, when you buy a new end it will come with a new boot. but if you mean the front axle shaft it should not cause the tire to wear funny it might cause some noise or a shake but not a wear problem.

My Pontiac Bonneville has a popping noise when i hit a bump i think its the tie rod ends i don't know if its inner or outer. How can i tell what the problem is and how hard it is to fix.


does it kinda sound like two peices of metal striking each other? most likely the outer tie rod end. the inner tie rod end wouldnt make a sound anything like that, it would snap and you wouldnt be able to steer the car very well.....regardless, this is easy to check. remove the wheel. the object directly behind your brakes is the wheel hub, directly behind the wheel hub is the steering knuckle. connected to the steering knuckle you should find the strut up top, a control arm on the bottom, the sway bar attaches towards the front of the car, the outer tie rod end connects to the hub on the side closest to the rear of the car. connected to the outer tie rod end is the tie rod, which is then connected to your power steering rack and pinion via the inner tie rod ends. you want to locate the outer tie rod end and examine it visually. is the rubber cracked, torn, or missing? if so, replace the outer tie rod end. you will need a 2 jaw puller to remove the old tie rod end, but removal and installation is EASY (i taught my wife how to do it in 5 minutes and she did it successfully in less than 10). depending on how far the jam nut is moved when replacing the tie rod, you may need an alignment after replacing it. if the rubber on the tie rod end looks fine, the noise is probably coming from the strut. when the struts are worn out, the strain of the vehicle bouncing is put on the coil over springs. after a while, the spring can become worn out as well.....this would create a "clunking" sound when going over bumps.....and, if the spring wears out too much, you MIGHT be able to hear a metalic popping sound when the struts reach the damper if the spring hasnt expanded that far yet (this is extremely unlikely tho, more likely than not, the spring would crack/break LONG before you hear this noise and the car would be close to undriveable......). regardless, out tie rod ends are roughly 12-15 bucks each and extremely easy to install. you might be able to find a parts store willing to loan you a 2 jaw puller, but if not they generally run 30-35 dollars....DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS REPAIR IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A REPAIR MANUAL THE LISTS THE CORRECT TORQUE SETTING FOR THE TIE ROD ENDS. if the bolt isnt torqued propperly, a) your alignment will be off and b) you run the risk of snapping the new tie rod end.

My 2001 Mercury Marquis has a sqeeking sound coming from front end, however there is no grease fittings to grease to reduce noise


That sound is a sign of rusted parts. You need to get the front end checked and may as well get an alignment. The manufactuers have reduced the number of grease fittings for years.

All the car makers, not just Mercury claim the parts are lubed for life. The parts would last longer if they could get fresh grease, but most people blow out the rubber boots by overfilling them anyway.

If the alignment shop doesn't find a problem with your car about all you can do is use a light oil or spray Lithium grease into the squeeking part.

Tie rod problem 98 Dodge


There is a tool that you can use that will make it easier for you. To get to the tie rod end, remove the wheel and take the outer tie rod end loose from the hub. You will have to use a hammer and hit the socket where the end goes into the hub to free it up. Once you have the tie rod loose from the hub, loosen the nut behind the outer tie rod end. Count the revolutions as you unscrew the outer end off and write te number down so you will know how far to put it back on. This will save your alignment. Now, the end that is still there is your inner tie rod end. You will have to undo the bellows boot to get to the nut. The tool will slide over the end and secure onto the nut. Now you just unscrew this and replace with you new inner tie rod end.
Please remember to rate this fix.

2003 Dodge Caravan Front end clunk.


Had similar problem with 2003 Dodge GC. Replaced the parts you mention + rack & pinion, then to fix the now noticable whining noise, replaced power steering pump and pulley. Fortunately was under an extended warrentee at 46k miles.
