Sounds like it could be the differential, or the transfer case. 4X4?

Why is there a clunking noise only when turning hard left, e.g., when parking or making a U-turn?


sounds like your cv joint needs replacing on that single side if you are hearing a grinding# How are your anti roll bar bushes and drop links? It may be a combination of things rather than just the one. Clunking and grinding do not necessarily go together but might be a symptom of a single issue.
Maybe Fixya should set up a sound file facility so that we can listen to such sounds too!!

OD Slipping on 1990 Chevy Silverado


I suspect that the oil pump is not producing sufficient pressure to do the job. have a pressure test done to check this. It is possible when reassembling the unit that there is a leak in the system (missing-damaged seals ,gaskets ) that is allowing oil to squirt of a join (loose bolts). Recheck the band and clutch pack adjustment now that it has been run.

2003 Chevy Silverado is making a clunking noise, on and off sometime over bumps. Also a deep grinding type noise in the same location while driving not constant


Hello Karla,

It sounds like you may have a bearing or CV joint going out. Your vehicle will need to be jacked up and inspected. It may be more than one problem too. Its possible the dragging noise could be something between brake pads and rotor, but the grinding that comes and goes in reference to direction sounds like a bearing or joint. I would take it to a professional right away and ask for an estimate only, and then get other estimates from other shops as well. Good luck to you.

2003 chevy silverado 2500 HD when ingageing 4 wheel high on the fly it makes a load clunk and grinding noise


I had a similar problem and had to have the 4 wheel drive serviced. It need new grease. the grease i had was old and it was causing the gears not engage cleanly thus causing the grinding sound until they were realigned.

Grinding/Low Whining noise when turning


sounds like the power sterring pump check valve is failing because it only when you turn, try to turn the wheels standing still to verify the noise, if noise present, replace the ps pump.

It is inside the transmission. It is called a reaction sun shell, it strips out, which causes the grind noise your talking about.

Rear end clunk in Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup


The noise is caused by the axle button being worn out, this lets the axle move back and forth and clunk, this is a unique problem with C clip retained axles, it is a noise issue but will not fail and cause any more damage, in order to fix it you must have the axles pulled and the diff carrier checked for excess wear where the axle retainning C clip rides, if the carrier is ok then replace the axles.
