May be a loose wheel, get the wrench & check the bolts, I have also experianced a small stone in the wheel trim causing such sounds. Any of the other sugestions are valid, but on safety grounds, get it in asap

I have 2002 grand vitara. It has a problem with ball joints. Do ball joints come as an assembly?

The lower ball joint is serviced with the lower control arm as an assembly. Refer to lower control arm.

Squeaking noise when turning rite


Its most likely a dry ball joint or tie rod end. I would have your front suspension greased if it is serviceable, otherwise you should have your ball joints inspected for wear and replace them if they are dry or beyond their service life.

How to replace the passenger control arm on the 2006 suzuki grand vitara


Most front ends are set up basically the same way.First raise and support your front end and remove the tire.Both the upper and lower should look about the same.If you look at the control arm you will have an upper and lower ball joint and a tie rod end bolted to the steering knuckle.Remove the bolt on the tie rod end and use a ball joint separate to remove the tie rod end.Then remove the ball joint from the steering knuckle with your separator.Depending on which control arm it is if its the upper you will also have to remove the brake hose out of the way to remove the upper control arm.Once that's done you will see 2 bolts that hold the control arms to the frame remove these bolts and your control arm will come off,You might have to pry them a little bit to get them out.You also want to have something handy to block up your steering knuckle until your ready to put it back together.It wouldn't hurt to have a piece of wire just in case you need to tie something in place.And be sure you grease everything with a high pressure grease.

I am getting a metallic "clicking" noise from the front end of a 2003 jeep grand cherokee. The noise is most audible at low speeds (10-15 mph) The tempo of the noise does not seem to increase/decrease with...


I can't say for sure without actually checking myselft but it sounds like one of four possiblilities, ball joints, tie rod ends or sabilizer bar ends or shocks.
To check the tie rod ends put the jeep on jack stands or a hoist, with the steering wheel locked try to turn the wheels back and forth and look for movement in the joints of the linkages.
To check the ball joints, while the jeep is up in the air grasp the top and bottom of the wheel and try tipping the wheel in and out, checking for movement in the ball joints.
Lower the Jeep back to the ground. Continue the tests by having a big friend or family member bounce the Jeep while you listen for and look for movement in the ball joints, stabilizer bar ends and along the linkage and abnormal movement in the shocks.

I am getting a clunking loud metallic noise when i accelerate, stop and move again from my 2008 grand vitara. i don't know if it is the backlash but it doesn't sound real.


Hi its sounds as though a bearing is braking up inside its race,possibly on a c/v joint or universal joint, especially if front wheel drive.

YOU NEED TO CHECK TIE ROD END S AND WHEEL BEARING OR BALL JOINTS AND CONTROLL ARM BUSHING HOPE THIS HELPS LIFT TRUCK GRAB WHEEL AND LIGHTLY MOVE SIDE TO SIDE SEE IF YOU HAVE PLAY IN TIE RODS GRAB WHEEL TOP TO BOTTUM AND SEE IF WHEEL BEARING HAS PLAY OR SPIN THE WHEEL TO SEE IF YOU CAN HEAR GROONING NOISE FROM BEARING DOING THIS THINGS YOU MAY BE ABLE TO TELL IF ITS BALL JOINT TOO
