    The Chevy Colbats have been knowen for the mud flap to come loose. This makes a metel bumping sound ( almost like a socket left under a hood) The bottom line is... Have the mud flap secured and all noise should go away. GM SHOULD RECALL THIS AND FIX... but won't ... it is not a saftey issue... more of a **** the people issue

I hit a median while turning left. Why does my vehicle make a loud squeaking noise when I turn the steering wheel or when I hit a bump?


Please get your car checked. You may have bent the Tie rods or the control arm and the Ball joint is making the Squeaking noise. Sway bar end links and Strut bearing will also make noise going over bumps.

Check for bad wheel balance, struts, lower ball joints ( no upper joints) , outer tie rod ends, inner tie rod ends, stabilizer bar bushings, lower control arm bushings , and finally a wheel alignment ,you have some bad looseness in one or more of these front end parts. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

RATTLING NOISE ON THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONT TIRE


The first thing to check on a rattling noise is if going over minor bumps in the road if that is when it makes noise is a sway bar link, they make a rattling noise. If you raise that wheel up you might also want to try and wobble the wheel to be sure it is not a tie rod end or ball joint. Typically I run into the sway bar links or the sway bar bushings making the noise. However ive even seen it be a rock sitting on the strut plate.

I have a 1999 camry LE which is making a knocking noise on both sides(more on the right side) at the front like if the struts/ball joints are bad; I changed the both struts, ball joints and the noise is...


The outer tie rod ends can make a clanging noise if they are loose. You can easily check them - grab a hold of the tie rod and try to move it around to see if it has any play in the steering knuckle..

The noise could also be caused by the stabilizer/sway bar. Check the bushings and check the links for wear.

Check the ball joint, tie rods ( inner and outer ), sway bar end link and the strut for a broken spring or strut mount/bearing. It could also be something as simple as the battery being loose. I hope this was helpful for you.

Front end shakes bad when I brake


My dear if according to you,

You've replaced tie rod ends, lower ball joints, sway bar links, struts and strut ends, and the warped brake rotors and the issue is still at hand; then you ought to consider replacing the hubs.

Good luck.

How do i find a diagram showing my front end sway bar bushings?


The sway bar bushings are under the large clamps that hold the bar to the frame. The ends of the sway bar are connected to the struts by the sway bar links. When the links wear out, they clunk--not squeak. The bushings are under the retainer in the pic below.

Struts were replaced but there is still squeaking in front


possible sway bar links, strut bearing plates (they sit on top of the strut), ball joints, tie rod ends. If the you can make it squeek by pushing up and down on the front, have someone do this while trying to narrow where the noise is coming from.
