    usually caused by worn out CV joints. Look for torn CV boots on axles.

Knocks when you turn, steering column jerks

Hi there - S Wilkins here.
Could be a front hub bearing or axle CV joint.
You may be able to raise the front wheels and move them around and find what is loose.

Can rocker arms cause heavy knocking noise

what is the motor from? Typically if you changed out all those parts already and its still a heavy knock, you're looking at crank bearings. How did you change the connecting rod bearings without the crank bearings? or are you referring to something else? I would assume its connecting rod bearings are the issue, if main bearings go you would see an issue in oil pressure.

My son has a 99 Pontiac Grand Prix, when he's driving it, it's making a knocking noise on the passenger side by the tire. Could it be a suspension or bearing issue?

Try turning the wheel and seeing if the knocking noise gets worse or better.Usually when you get a knocking like that or a clicking when your turning,you need to replace the CV shaft on that side.Sometimes a wheel bearing will make a click but if you jack up the car and can hold the wheel from top to bottom and can wiggle it and feel alot of movement that is the wheel bearing but it is probably the CV shaft making that knocking noise.Good luck

How to get the front wheel off an 1989 ford escort, do you have to take off the big center nut?

Please NO. That nut is the whole drive axel and C.V joint!
Just the regular lug nuts; then a big-time pull, or rather bang!
The problem, (live in Canada with salt?) is some corrosion behind the wheel & the break rotor, sticking the wheel on. First, support the car VERY WELL, not just jack stands, certainly not just the jack. Like, use a stack of 1' x 1' x 3" solid concrete blocks or something under the frame. Then use a very heavy hammer and come at the rim from under the car outward against the rim to knock it off. I used a sledge, swong / slid smoothly under the car, with some hard-wood against the wheel. I had to increase the swing a couple of times to dislodge it! Be careful you don't knock the rather light car off it's supports with any of you underneath; do it from the front.

My key won't turn in ignition of jeep cherokee 1999--turned the wheel to lock but the key still won't turn

i have had this problem before, fixed it once by spraying some (lubrication of your choice) into the key cylinder... then slide the key in and out several times and give it another go... if that doesn't work, make sure (sounds stupid but...) the car is in park, jiggle it a bit to make sure.... if that does not work there is several other things you can try...

99 RAM 4x4 Front Axle Knock

that is not normal
there is a problem in the drive shaft by sliding so fa into the diff the cv joint"U" joint is no longer directly in line with the kingpin and is binding up as the steering direction is varied
the center line of the joint has to remain directly inline with the turning point ( king pin, strut ) so that as the axle is turning and the steering is turned the joint is in the same plane
check why the axle is allowed to move in and out and you will have your problem solved
