SOURCE: clunk noise from front left suspension

My guess is a strut bushing/bearing, but have your front end checked out by good shop to make sure it isn't something else more dangerous.

SOURCE: Creaking Noise in Front Axel when going over speed bumps/dips in road

My grandfather has a 97 Ford Crown Vic that used to do the same thing. He had the front end greased when he got an oil change and that solved the problem. So thats probably all you need.

SOURCE: front end rattle

It's a loose steering column. Remove the black plastic shield under the steering wheel. Lossen the bolt that holds the two shafts together, slide them together as far as they'll go, and re-tighten the bolt. It's that simple... to stop that annoying rattle.

SOURCE: rattle noise coming from front driver side wheel

It could be several things.

1. Strut is worn and the rod is rattling.
2. The ball joint or control arm are worn. A new control arm comes with the ball joint and a new bushing.
3. The inner and/or tie rod end is worn, allowing the wheel to rattle.

Raise the car and support it. Twist the wheel back and forth while observing the tie rod. Look for play in the inner and outer connections. If this is ok, place a pry bar under the tire and lift up while observing the ball joint and control arm. You should not see any play. Look at the strut. Look for oil on the housing. Look for play in the rod or a loose connection.

I have a rattling sound coming from my front end when hitting bumps. Took it in for an alignment check and the only thing wrong is slightly worn lower ball joints. What could be causing this noise?


rattling noises on bumps can be shock rubbers , stabilizer rubbers or bar ball joints
it could be the lower ball joints as they take all the load

Knocking Noise from Front End Toyota Corolla 2004


Ensure the wheel nuts and Axle nuts are properly torqued to the specification. Lift up the front wheels, place supports under the car and do the following:
- Sit if front of right wheel, slightly move it right and left and feel any abnormal noise if coming out of it. If click-click or Tuck-Tuck sound is observed it could be due to the excessive play in the tie rod end, rack end, ball joint wheel bearing or U joint. Next hold the Tire with your one hand at the top and with other hand at the bottom. Shake the Tire inside out and feel any noise or play. If play is observed, it could be the worn out ball joint or the wheel bearing. Now hit the Tire at the top with rubber hammer and observe any rattling noise coming from near the center of the wheel. If you could listen to the extra noise it could be due to the dried up caliper pins. Grease the pins with graphite grease. If all is found fine, similarly check the left wheel and repair as necessary.

Rubbing noise in front end when car sits going over a dip, also when engine is braking, noise comes and goes


most likely you will find that there is a plastic gard up above the tyre. if it has come lose then sometimes one end of it can flop down and rub aainst the tyre. this will usually happen when you go through a dip because the suspension let the tyre go closer to the gard at the same time the plastic bit hangs lower as the car goes through the dip. when my car did this I also found that when I tok my foot off the accelerator the front of the car would drop down causing the suspension to do the same thing as when it goes through a dip. also some corners and and uneven roads do the same thing.

My 2003 Ford focus is making a rattling sound by the driver side in the engine when I go over a bump or pot hole what could this be?


There are a number of things which can do that. If someone did not properly fasten the aircleaner down it will rattle. You can get a rattle out of the shielding for your Catalytic converters and sometimes gravel will get caught in the shielding and rattle with every bounce.

There is a good possibility the rattle is your front brake pads which is why they make a compound to glue the pad to the caliper. To check this, just lightly hit the brakes enough to make the calipers work and if the noise is reduced or stops, then that is your problem. Do this when going over the bumps and potholes.

Another possibility is the joint from the exhaust header to the Catalytic pipe. There is a round metallic gasket usually called a "donut" which can work loose with engine vibration. This will sometimes chirp when you go to Reverse and back to a forward gear.

I hope one of these will solve your problem.

On my 2002 Sebring LXi 2.7L there are so many rattles and noises when I go over any size bumps. Had front top strut bushings replaced, but did not help.


Need to check the entire front end at a place like Sears or your dealership to determine what parts have excessive play in them. Sears doesn't usually charge for this service, in hopes that you would have them work on the car in the future.

Sometimes, the cv joints are worn and cause a rattle or clicking on turns. Also, the bushings for the lower control arms sometimes wear out causing a rattle or other noise that can be disconcerting.

When the strut bushings were replaced, were the other parts in the front end checked out?

Good luck on this repair.

RATTLING NOISE ON THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONT TIRE


The first thing to check on a rattling noise is if going over minor bumps in the road if that is when it makes noise is a sway bar link, they make a rattling noise. If you raise that wheel up you might also want to try and wobble the wheel to be sure it is not a tie rod end or ball joint. Typically I run into the sway bar links or the sway bar bushings making the noise. However ive even seen it be a rock sitting on the strut plate.
