Front end grinding noise


Several possibilities. Sound transmits through metal. The rear Emergency brakes will lose their lining and the linings fall into the rear brake drum. They will often pulverize the material and the piles of debris will shift when backing up and repeat the process going forward.
Rust on the front rotors. Constant battle. Can rust in 3 days enough to make noise. Sticking caliper or rubber brake hose is breaking down inside and blocking brake fluid return. Fluid has pressure to tighten caliper but relies on gravity/suction return. Rubber brake hoses internally can form flaps which act like 1 way gates.
Check other front axle for same parts, maybe 1/2 shaft is failing.

Grinding noise in driver side front when wheel is turned to right - no noise when wheel is neutral


This may be either a dragging brake shoe or possibly a wheel bearing. The car needs to be taken to a mechanic or one of the national service dealers (Meineke, Midas, Wheel Works, etc.) for a diagnosis before the problem becomes more expensive.

Did the technician check the rear axle bearings for excessive play or the source of the noise when he checked the rear brakes if this was not checked properly you may have a bad bearing that is making the noise.

Hello i would check your wheel bearings or sometimes called bearing hub .Jack car up prop the car with axle stands now remove your tires and rotors once removed wiggle you bearing hub left to the right your bearing hub should have minimal play one side to the other is obvious the looser play hub will be your noise you have been experiencing.most people call this road noise.

Check the condition of the wheel bearings, front and back side if the brake rotor, and the back side of the rim. Everything should be clean, rust build-up can throw everything out of true. The hub or wheel-bearing should be tight and smooth when spun.

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.
