Ball-joints are probably damaged. not only will this ruin the tire in short order, it is a very dangerous condition and should be taken to a volvo dealer or an alignment shop.

Keys stuck in the ignition. Wont turn or come out.

There is a possibility that the steering lock is leaning on one side, such as when the front tire rests heavily a curb. Try moving the steering wheel repeatedly from side to side ( as far as it will let you go), while at the same time trying to turn the ignition key.

What could be the problem if rear driver wheel is leaning out like it is bent? I ran up on a curb and now my driver rear wheel is leaning out some and my front wheel feels like I need an alignment or I...

The best thing to do is to take it to a local Frame and Alignment Shop and have them put the vehicle on a Frame Machine and take measurements to determine what is exactly bent before throwing money on parts you might not need.

My 2001 dodge durango leans to the driver side. already rplaced leaf springs and shocks. Need help

Wasted money oin the shock unless they were bad. Shocks won't affect the hieght of the car. The springs whould have done it. Are the tires all the smae type and fully inflatted? Then take ruler and measure each side to make sure what your seein is true. Somtimes if the front wheels are turned to one side the car will looked like it's leaning.

There is a humming sound coming from the front end of my 1999 oldmobile alero. Only happens when the car is moving. I dont hear itat idle or even when pushing the gas at idle. could it be my transmission...

Hello! If the humming noise is speed related(gets louder as vehicle speed increases)check front wheel bearings. If the noise goes away when turning one way or the other then it will most likely be in the front wheel bearing. If you turn the wheel(while moving)to the right and the noise goes away it is on the right side. If you turn the wheel to the left and the noise goes away its on the left side. Hope this information helps!

Front wheel noise whilst driving

Yes it sounds like a wheel bearing.I would jack the suspected wheel off the ground and then grab it from the top and bottom and then try to move it with a push and pull movement.If the wheel moves that is most likely the bad one.I would also try the other wheel just to be sure.The bearing isn't to bad a price but the bearing needs to be pressed in and out to be replaced.
