I think you should make quite certain at the mechanics' that it is the struts and mounts knocking, and not the lower main ball joints. However worn strut top mounts are the most likely cause.

You don't say where you are but in the US $1000 should get you new struts and mounts both sides, albeit not a top name brand, and a necessary wheel alignment also.

You should not just replace only one side as that will degrade the handling and steering of the car.

A knock in front end when i turn


If the knock is heard when on a smooth surface when turning at full lock, it is one or both CV joints being worn. That usually happens soon after a CV rubber boot splits and lets out all the grease. Test this in a quiet parking lot. Replace both sides, not just one.

If it happens when driving somewhat straighter on a less than smooth surface, it will be either a suspension strut or strut mount failure, or less often, a lower outer ball joint.

2006 hhr rattling in front end


When you changed out the struts, did you also replace the Strut Bearing Mounts that mount the struts to the strut towers on the car? These things are notorious for making the rattling sound.

HHR 2006. Front end shaking. Had a mechanic look & told me struts/shocks, car made poorly ... low, etc. NOW when start and driving loud noise similar to diesel cars--putt, putt. Drives alright....


Get a second and third opinion from other local mechanics.
Does the shaking chang with speeds? It possible you have a tire with slipped internal belt.
Could be a few other things too..
Sound issue may or may not be related. Have more than one guy look at it.

When going over bumps frontend makes noises worse during cold weather coud it be the struts


Could be anything, do some google searching on it. My prepurchase research indicated that the model line is notorious for needing a front end rebuild every 10,000 miles, everything not just the struts. It is front end heavy and this is increased in braking.

I bought a Hyundai instead and while I am not wholly satisfied with it I am glad that I did not buy the HHR. I carpool in a 2010 HHR, it has yet to hit 20,000 miles and its front end clatters like a car with a hundred thousand on it.

I have an 06 Cobalt LS with a very annoying knocking sound coming from the front end. Someone told me it was the stabliizer bar links. I thought it was a strut problem because of the wet marks around both...


It is most likely the control arm bushings. These are notorious for going out on Cobalts. I have had mine replaced twice.

The control arms on both the driver and passenger side have rubber bushings which probably deteriorated. This is causing metal to hit metal when the car goes over bumps.

The bushings themselves are relatively inexpensive; you can most likely pick them up at a dealership for under $40. The only issue is installing them. You have to use a hydraulic press to press the old bushings out and press the new bushings in. This isn't difficult, but you need the equipment.

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.
