This is caused by incorrect & uneven front tire inflation OR a worn out CV joint( constant velocity joint) & this joint is the power transmitting shaft from the transmission to the tires. If it needs to be changed, you'll need to remove the lower ball joint & rim & tire & holddown nut to the CV joint. Hope this helps! Good luck!

SOURCE: Front End noise and vibration

Check the U-joints and axle baerings. But its most likely because the truck is in four wheel drive.

SOURCE: I have a 2001 grand

this sounds like a wheel bearing to me. to check for a worn wheel bearing jack the car up and with the tires off the ground. place your hands on the top and bottom of the tire and apply pressure back and forth to feel for play in the bearing. sometimes they are worn ever so slightly to feel the wear other times it's very noticable. if they seem to be tight they could be the ball joints as allready sugested, to check those jack one side up at a time then use a long bar under the tire to raise it up and down, if the ball joints bad you will see the play in the joint. ken!

SOURCE: 2002 Neon front end passenger wheel clicks when turning right

Replace the CV axles. I say replace both of the axles because if one is going out, the other one is right behind it. This should get rid of your clicking sound/vibration.

Could be a tie rod, CV joint, wheel bearing, or even a bushing. You won't know untill you get into it.

SOURCE: When making slow turns there is a grinding/rubbing

This most likely means one of your front drive axles needs to be replaced. A U-joint would make noise going straight also. If I have helped leave me positive feedback. Thanks

Rubbing noise from front of car


It could be your brakes. Your brakes are always rubbing lightly. Pull your front wheels off one at a time, and feel the rotor, to see if there are any gouges in it. Do not do this after you have just driven a distance though, that brake will be hot. Check that first though. Are there any vibrations when you press the brake at slow or high speeds?

Weird vibration, unable to figure out


I would have the front wheel bearing adjustment checked first as if they are loose the rotor will be rubbing on the pads and the vibration will be wheel wobbling on the loose bearings Unless you replaced the bearings with new ones then they will fail especially if the adjustment was too tight and too much grease was used.

Front end noise


Assuming that you have already ruled out the brakes, severely worn engine mounts can transmit vibration and noises from the engine which are not normally heard. You don't say in what I see but is the vehicle two or four wheel drive. Since you mention CV half shafts I have to assume it is at least front wheel drive. If the vehicle is four wheel drive then there is a front differential with bearings in it that may be at fault. Have you done both sides when you say "hub assembly". Defective hub bearings will make grinding noises which will change tone or intensity when turning, accelerating or braking however the noise is usually fairly constant unless they are only just starting to fail. CV joints don't normally "grind" unless they are really bad. They usually make progressively worse "clicking" sounds or "clunking" sounds especially when turning hard, changing gears or direction of travel (forward to reverse and back again). Do you have non-stock tires/wheels? Larger/wider than factory spec tire sizes can rub the fender wells when the car is moving or turning. Another thing it could possibly be is the air dam below the front bumper. If it is loose it will push down in the airstream while the car is moving and rub on the ground.

2004 dodge ram 1500 2WD front end making a metal on metal sound going over small surface bumps like rail road tracks. I have had trhe front end inspected 3 times for the possible cause. All garages tell me...


Interesting problem although aggravating. Take a bottle of Dawn washing up liquid,(or equivilent) and drive the vehicle to the nearest railroad crossing. Squirt the soap all over the mounting rubbers on the shocks and anti roll /sway bar. Drive across the railroad crossing and listen for the noise. if none then you have narrowed the search. next do a simple process of elimination regarding the soaped rubber mountings etc.

However,a Dodge noise making rattle when crossing any uneven surface can be caused by the front grille securing fixtures coming loose and allowing the grille to rub and vibrate on the sheet metal. I have an older Dodge with stainless steel wiring fitted to resolve that same problem! It's not an obvious fault but it really is an aggravating one.

Front end vibration at 40 mph and rubbing sound


Vibration at 40 mph hard to diagonisis without looking at front end. Could be wheels need balancing, new wheels and rims. Loose or worn suspension items.
Bring vehicle into a tire and alignment shop. Most Sears auto center have them.
With regards to rubbing noise again hard to diagonisis without looking at the affected tire, probably a splash shield hitting the tire in reverse.
Alignment shop will find the problem.

03 Trailblazer Front End Noise/Vibration


I had similar problem with my 03 trailblazer. It had a low dull hum in the front end with a little vibration being felt in gas pedal. Noise increased over a couple weeks and was louder turning to the left and quiter turning to right. A GM mechanic friend of mine replaced the front right hub and took care of the problem. Hub was about $160 at Autozone.
