SOURCE: Clunking noise while turning/hitting bumps

Hay I would check your sway bar in the front .The bal may have came out of the seat located under front wheel well. Also they could be just loose. Check by rocking your jeep side to side .

SOURCE: A popping noise when I hit a bump or hit the brakes

Sounds like you need new front struts since it sounds like it is coming from under your or towards the center of the car it most likely is either the driverside front strut or strut housing. I would take it to a certified safety mechanic asap. It might just be worn struts but it could be alot worse then that. Better safe then sorry.

SOURCE: loud noise/bang from the back of the car when going over bumps

You more than likely have one of two problems. One of your shock absorbers has a broken attachment bracket or 2) You have a broken exhaust bracket to your muffler. To check the shock just have the vehicle on a flat area motor turned off with emergency brake on and go to each side and "bounce" the vehicle using your body weight. Then to check the exhaust do this when motor is completely cool motor off emergency brake on and chock the tires so there is no chance the vehicle will roll. Get under the rear and attempt to move the exhaust assembly. If it moves to any degree side to side etc then it is this. If the vehicle bounces excessively when you bounce on it then it is the shock - repair accordingly. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1999 alero the front end makes noise like the wheel bearing or

if its clicking when you turn the wheal, then its a cv joint. If its making a bump bump bump noise as you go down the road and increases with speed and slows with speed then its probably a bering, It sounds like you have hit something and caused your ball joints to damage. take a board 2x4 about 2 foot long. jack up the car in the front, just enough to fit the board under the tires. At each tire lift the board and see if you have any movement in the wheal. The movement you are looking for will be up and down, not side to side. Your steering moves side to side. Your ball joints give you limited up and down rotation movement to allow your car to handle bumps. If its in access of an inch rotation then there is your problem. Depending on the car, I would probably look at salvage yards first then go to the part store and compare prices. Because some junk yards are chaging near new prices for used stuff. Also your struts may be shot also.

Have a raddeling noise in the front suspension golf3 gts


Why would you waste money on springs?

They won't make a noise or ever need replacing

Find the cause of the issue that bothers you first

Tie rod end don't make noise

I would think exhaust converter shield or any part of the
exhaust system that is rusted, would vibrate

Any vacuum hoses or parking cables ,could make a noise,
if hitting the floor pan or other parts of the car

Top shock bushings that are completely gone, rattle

Top Strut Bearing Plates on top of front struts make noise

Stabilizer Bushings may need replacing

Body Mount Bushings front or rear,if that was what was
changed so far

When going over bumps frontend makes noises worse during cold weather coud it be the struts


Could be anything, do some google searching on it. My prepurchase research indicated that the model line is notorious for needing a front end rebuild every 10,000 miles, everything not just the struts. It is front end heavy and this is increased in braking.

I bought a Hyundai instead and while I am not wholly satisfied with it I am glad that I did not buy the HHR. I carpool in a 2010 HHR, it has yet to hit 20,000 miles and its front end clatters like a car with a hundred thousand on it.

I'm hearing a loud ''cranking'' noise from the back of my 1996 jeep cherokee mostly when making turns or hitting potholes/bumps-could it be shocks/bushings?


If shocks are bad, the links on the swaybar will hit the body on bumps. Check everything...you can see it...I can't!

Loud front end noise over low-speed city street bumps.


I have the same problem but others said that replacing the $25 sway bar bushings fixed the problem. This solution helped several owners so it's worth changing.
