Depending on what kind of car you have it could be a couple of different things. Usually the washers on a strut or shock jingle when you hit a bump after the rubber bushing is worn out. I would start there!

I hope this helps!!!

I hit a median while turning left. Why does my vehicle make a loud squeaking noise when I turn the steering wheel or when I hit a bump?


Please get your car checked. You may have bent the Tie rods or the control arm and the Ball joint is making the Squeaking noise. Sway bar end links and Strut bearing will also make noise going over bumps.

If you have fitted new shockys I suggest you check the travel of the units as it sounds as if they are bottoming out Pistons hitting bottom of internal cylinder.

Chain dragging / Change jingling sound from Driver Front Side


Does this sound occur while th engine is running and the car is sitting still? Or only while driving? If so look at the exhaust pipe under the engine, there is a section that looks like flexible pipe, at either end there is a thin washer-like connector or fastner is it dangeling from the pipe, if so that is probably your noise. I had the same jingling noisre in mine and that was the problem, I just cut it off and the noise never came back. Hope this helps, let me know.

Sounds like change jingling front right axle area


Previous owner jumped what? You have a lot of words there but what I see is your front end rattles when going over bumps and you can move the differential but don't know whats allowing movement. Have someone make it move and look to see what's moving!!! Also have someone bounce it and look for anything loose.

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.

Rattle in front right 98 prelude


Does your vehicle have hub caps if so check to see whether all the clips are ok.
push up and down on each corner and to see if you can hear the noise, it could be a number of problems, ie shocks, bushes, wheel bearings or the bump stops in the shocks.
also jack the car up and check the steering components by wiggiling the wheel left to right looking for excess play and check the CV shafts and boots, usually if the boots are damaged the CVs will either need re greesing or replacing.
