Check your lugs nuts and make sure they are tight.

if the noise you are talking about is a grinding noise then it could be a stuck brake or a bad wheel bearing,

if its a thumping noise then someone didn't properly attach the cv joint or it is going bad,

if it's more of a woogeda woogedah then check your tire for knots / lumps or swelling on the tread.

Okay, so I have a 1996 honda civic ex and since iv'e bought it the steering wheel would shake when I brake from going 40 mph and up. This happens everyday and not only does the steering wheel shake I...


If it only does it during braking, it's not an axle. Likely culprits are warped rotors or bad suspension bushings.

A warpped rotor will cause the brakes on that rotor to grab and release as the rotor goes around, causing a shake. This is often felt in the brake pedal as a pulsing as well.

Failed front suspesion bushings can cause this as well, esppecially on front wheel drive cars.. When you are accelerating, your wheels are pulling the control arms forward, but when you brake, the control arms are pushed backwards. So, depending on what bushings are worn out, your alignment can change pretty drastically going from accelerating to braking or vice-versa. This would also account for the moving/hitting sensation you described. To check this you need to jack up the front of the vehicle and check the control arm bushings, as well as any other bushings for links/parts connected to the control arm.

2005 Z71 Tahoe - When turning left only there is a squeal like sheet metal rubbing something. Pulled axles and replaced brake backing plates (rusted out) and all rear brakes. Had to replace the driver side...


Did you check the front shields also. Had a lady going into a tizzy one time with pretty much the same problem. Squealing when turning only one way. I took it for a quick drive and pulled it into the shop. Took off the front wheel where I thought the offending sound was coming from.

Well there's your problem lady. A small rock between the rotor and dust shield. Cost to customer. $0.

Hope this helps.

Noise from drivers side


hi how are you.there is a couple of things that will cause a rubbing sound.if it is a high pich sound then look at your dust cover behind your brake rotor.a low pich or a growling noise check your wheel bearing/hub assembly.with wheel off the ground wiggle it side to side and up and down you will have alot of play.or there is something hitting the tire.

Anti lock brakes


you need to have your brakes checked on the front and also have them check wheel bearing on that side. when a car sits overnight in humid conditions the brake rotors will rust over lightly, that normally is removed off of rotor after first brake application. it shouldnt do it after you keep driving. abs does make noises though when it is working, sliding, so I would pop my hood and check for abs computer. It has brake lines and electrical connection going to it. Im not saying its bad but just look at its location and see if the sound of it functioning/location seems to make it sound like it is left wheel
