I would look at your Lower control arms. The part is about $200 - usually the silicone filled bushing go bad (it's pretty common) but you can't replace them they are part of the arm. I have a 2005 Murano and that was my issue. it sounds kind of like a deadened repeated thud on road imperfections. mine was less noticeable on hwy. It's annoying i know.

you can try nissanmurano.org

Steering wheel and front end shakes with knocking noise


easiest check struts for leakage or if the top nut came loose.
next Ball joints support bottom of lower control arm and try to move tire in and out on the bottom.
next check bearing plate for movement by trying to move top of tire.
last check tie rod ends by moving as in right turn left turn.
do both sides. if one side is bad replace both sides so you don't have to tie up vehicle in a couple months.

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.

hello tld. There are a few things to check. First of all you could have a bad tire, broken tire belts for example. You could have a bad U joint causing the thumping and you could need a front end alighment resulting in the shaking. To check it out, get it up into a auto lift, a flash light and have a good look around. Also chech the tread on the tires. Uneven wear, wear all to the inside or the outside, all indicate that a front end alignment is needed. Joe

Squeak sound in the front right tire & a thump noise in the rear.
