If the noise is from 25 thru 45 mph--- then you remove the

I hear a progressively louder, almost metal-on-metal sound behind my front passenger tire while I'm driving, regardless of braking or accelerating. I was told a couple months ago to change my tie rod soon...


prob a wheel bearing if you think its a tie rod just leave the car off and get under it and wiggle the long arms connecting the front wheels.
if its wheel bearing jack that tire off the ground and try to wiggle it.
ultimatly goto the tire shop and have them look at it.

1990 Nissan Maxima V6 a/t: vibration above 60 mph


Start off with a tire rotation. That should solve the problem. If problem presist the next best thing to do is have your wheel bearings checked. In order to check your wheel bearings you need to lift the car from the front (suspending the the front wheels. With both hands grab the tire on both sides and move with back and forth motions. If you find much play then you need to change your bearings. These things will cause movement at high rates of speed

Left front wheel wobbles when braking


have you checked the wheel bearings? with that wheel raised up off the ground with a jack and on a jack stand, place your hands at the sides of the tire and give it a shake, do the same with your hands at like the 3 o clock and 10 o clock position as to not get your hand hurt if something moves loose, and shake there to, if you feel any play it could be a tie rod, or control arm, spin the tire and listen for any noise, if you hear any you more then likely have a bad bearing....

I Think I have a front wheel bearing problem


Check wheel bering for play if there is no play , it doesn't mean that bearing is NOT bad its can still be dry and would be making that grinding sound you described Also check axle and see if boot is broken. That may be your problem also make sure that rotors are not gouged/scraped up and pads are good.Contact if you need more help and thanks for using FIX YA
