Hi! Yes it can be the front axles. THe bearings are surely worn that when engaged in reverse you can hear a chattering sound. Once replaced you'll be good. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Ive got a knocking coming from the rear passenger side of my ford focus. i have renewed the bearings, shoes, cylinder but the noise is still there could it be from anything else. please help


check the rear stabilizer links. there will be a round bar than runs accross the rear suspension. There will be two links that attach this bar to the lower control arm. either one of the links is broken or the bushings that hold the bar in place are worn out.

Clunking noise and something feels loose underneath my feet when going over bumps


very common for the stabilizer bar bushings to get loose on this model. check the bushings by trying to move the stabilizer bar up and down and left and right, if there is any movement, they need replaced. Also check the stabilizer bar links, by holding the bar and moving it up and down and also holding the link to see if the joitn moves or not

Popping noise in front drivers side of 1998 chevy Z71 in reverse


Look at where the torsion bars go through the control arm and get someone to move the vehicle back and forth and see if they are moving. This is most likely. Let me know what you find.

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.

you will have to put the car up and move the wheels side to side.if there is play there is a ball joint or tie rod end or stabilizer bar link that is bad.
it could also be a cv joint that is gone,look for a cracked boot or grease on the driveshaft.

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.
