Usually it is a ball joint or tie rod or cv shaft. Those are the three main culprits

Clunk noise when turning


Check the cv shaft boots, if they are torn the grease inside will have come out and now the joints inside are worn out. Worn cv joints will cause noises when turning.

Have replaced all tie rods; inner&outer;struts&upper mounts;sway bar bushings & links;lower control arms with ball joints& passenger side upper motor mount.none of these have changed this noise even s


What noise? And year and make of car?
A clicking noise on turns is a worn CV joint on the axle shafts. A grinding noise at one of the wheels could be a wheel bearing. Worn brake pads may cause squealing, screeching other high pitched noise.

Cluncking noise from front end when pulling away / braking hard and some times when turning


You didn't say what make or model or year, but This could be so many things. Bad ball joints, bad control arm, bad struts, strut plates, bad CV joint, bad inner tie rod, bad wheel bearing, caliber , sway bar, . Not enough info, but if you put vehicle in the air and pry wheel around looking for anything loose in the steering components, this is the best thing to do, and it will give you a better idea of what's going wrong

I have a noise coming from the front strut area. It only happens when the car is moving and turning. Everything seems to be tight underneath and the CVs are ok. Maybe strut tops but it is hard to tell as...


Does the noise sound like a clunking sound? Very common problem on this year Tribute is worn sway bar link ball joints. To check this out you need to get under the vehicle and locate the front sway bar. It is connected on both sides to the strut with a long metal shaft and tiny little ball joints on either end where it connects to the strut and to the sway bar. Grab ahold of the sway bar end near where this link is attached and try to move the sway bar up and down. It should be very solid with no give at all. If you feel and/or hear a light clunking noise at either end the little ball joint on that side is failing and needs replaced. The ball joint will come with the entire like as an assembly and is easily replaced. Do however make sure that the nut that attaches link at either end has not come loose and is causing the noise before condeming the ball joint.

Front end clunking noise going over small bumps


It could be a couple of things.
Loose or worn out strut - (jack up car, remove tire and shake the strut really hard to see if it's loose. Check for signs of leaking or damage to strut)
Missing rubber isolator under front spring (visually inspect the suspension while tire is off).
Broken sway bar mount or missing rubber in the mount on the frame. (Lay under the front and look for where the sway bar mounts to the frame. Make sure everything is tight and the rubber is still in it.

Clunking noise front passenger when i hit a bump


It's unlikely to be a ball joint on an '05. Make sure the mechanic jacks the car up under the lower control arm then checks radial and axiel (up and down). The sway bar links are bad about making noise.
