The suspension on these vehicles fall apart. I would inspect the lower control arm bushing first. Look for cracks in rubber or for control arm hitting subframe at rear bushing. If Okay inspect Front strut and mount. Most likely this is the problem. Also inspect the stabilizer link pin for play

SOURCE: thunking from front wheel area while driving

Have you tried roating the wheels and putting the front wheels to the rear?It could also be a main wheel bearing that holds the CV joint shaft(outer)This bearing,common fault, will need to be pressed out as its pressed into the hub and cannot be removed by normal means.In some cases this part can no longer be obtained so a salvage yard would be the only option and must be brought as a complete unit.Wheel hub assembly.

Have a 1997 Mountaineer a the front makes this loud squeaking sound when turning/running over speed bumps or any time front suspension is working


It can be bushings in the front sway rods or the control arms. The tie-rod ends or even ball-joint sockets can make noise if they are dry.

The possibilities are depending on whether you hear the sound in the front or back of the car: You have a broken brake pad in the front or a broken brake shoe in the back; there is a bad wheel bearing that needs to be replaced, there is a flat spot on one of your tires.

I got a 96 chevy 4x4 and my front wheels aren't pulling. i replaced the acuator and still nothing. everything sounds like it is engaging but no turning of the front wheels. do 96 models have auto locking...


96 chevys have a ifs (independent front suspension) this give it more ground clearance but does not have lock out hubs, the cv axles go into the front differential an spin freely until you put it in 4wd, how this works is your transfercase spins the drive shaft that goes into the front differential an while you put it in 4wd it sends power to the actuator to lock the front differential. if your front end isnt pulling you either popped your 1 of your cv axles but if you did this you would know because it makes a very loud thunking noise while you're driving, my guess is you have a short thats not sending power to the actuator. check to see if the wiring harnesses are connected and check if the fuse that operates the 4wd in the cab of the truck is not blown. also actuators for these trucks are horrible they go out alot

We have a 1998 ford expedition V8 4WD, 131K miles.Problem = when backing out of garage and going down drive (we have an incline and must turn wheel to the left) the rear end of the car makes a thunking...


this can be caused by excessive play in the drive axle button ends inside the differential, you can confirm this by putting the truck on a lift and pulling and pushing in and out on the tires, if there is more than a little movement the axles are worn out at the retainer "C" clips inside the diff.

Sounds like you already know what is wrong with it. It most likely needs a motor, or a rebuild.

Knock on left front suspension over bumps and rough roads


Have the sway-bar end-links replaced. They will thunk and rattle over washboard or severe bumps, but will not when wheels are turned and sway-bar is loaded.Fairly cheap and easy repair, no alignment needed.
