    there are nearly as many noise possibilities as there are parts in your front end. See if you can isolate the noise to one wheel. If you can do that it could be a axle joint (c/v or universal) or a hub bearing beginning to fail. If the noise is "general" and non specific, check the differential gears for wear. Any metal in the lube can also be caused by a bearing failure.(there are four)

    It seems to be when you turn left sharp turn the jeep seams to jump it is in 4 weel dr. all the time.

  • Richard Scordino Jun 05, 2010

    OK so now it's not a noise it's a jump? Items I mentioned earlier can cause either. It seems that you aren't looking at it but just thinking about it. You not only need to listen, but you have to actually examine under there to see what's looking normal or not.
    Sometimes you even need to take it apart and look.

Bad axle


A bad axle will make a continuous clicking or clunking sound when making a sharp turn (left or right), but if they are really worn out it would not have to be a sharp turn for them to make that noise.

After our suburu outback warms-up, there is a thumping noise from the front axles when I turn to the right or left. Our mechanic wants to change the transmission, but I am not sure that is the problem. He...


if its all wheel drive, you will have CV joints in the front. if the boots on the cv joints are damaged, torn ripped etc, then dust and debris will have entered into the cv joint and wreak all types of havoc on the bearing. To test, go into a parking lot and at slow speed....20km, 10 mi/hr turn sharp to one direction and listen to see if the noise becomes apparent = will be grinding or clunking. this is the result of the bearing wearing a groove in the cv bearing housing and when you turn sharply, the bearings do in and out of this groove, causing you to here a clunking sound. also, it should do this wether it is hot or cold = not temperature dependant

Clicking noise in the front end when making turns


Most likely this a broken CV joint and this means replacing the axle.
