Have a look at the axle boots.if they are ripped,the grease gets out and the cv joint makes a clicking noise when turning.if it is a noise that is while driving like a humming sound,it could be a bearing.jack up the car and move the wheel up and down and side to side.if there is any play at all,it could be a worn tie rod end or ball joint,the upper control arm has a front and rear ball joint,and you can actually see it move if it is bad.if there is any play when moving the wheel,have it looked at by a reputable shop.

I have a flapping/humming noise coming from the rear wheels of my 2004 golf 1

I know what you are talking about. If you stand on the side of the car and put one foot on the top/side of the tyre and you push into the car direction, the weel will go forward and back to you if it is weel bearings. The centre of the hub will also go very hot after a short drive. If it is not that, then it is your cv joints. I would go for inner cv joint by the side of the gearbox. My sons golf had same noise and it was the inner cv joints. It is luckely not so expensive. Be strong.

Recently replaced front shocks, bearings, and ball joints. CV joints to be replaced (grind noise heard) and advised that noise heard when going over bump coming from inside steering rack which should also...

If the rack is not leaking fluid, and the power steering is operable, there is no reason to replace the rack. If the rack has become loose from the vehicle and is causing a noise, you can tighten the bolts to secure it.

I have a 2001 Chrysler Town & Country Minivan. When turning the wheel either way, the car makes a horrible grinding noise and the steering wheeling makes a whistling noise at the same time.

i don,t know what the whistling noise is but it sounds like your cv joints may need to be looked at. the bearings in the cv joint maybe going bad.

The front shocks were replaced 6 months ago on my '98 Camry, and recently they have been making loud clicking noises when going over bumps. The noise is getting louder. Stabilisers are new and the steering...

It may not be your shocks at all. It could be the bearings in one of your CV joints. If you hear the sound when you are turning then that's your problem. Open the windows and drive at a slow speed while making turns. Listen to what side the noise is coming from and replace that CV arm.

Knocking noise

The CV joints may have gone bad and needs to be replaced, the other thing that would cause a knocking noise is a worn out shock bushing as the wheel goes up and down there is play on the shock to the shock towers from worn out bushings. Recap, check the CV Joints for excessive play and the front shocks. You can buy shock bushings but most likely your going to need to replace the shocks if they have been in that long that the bushings are worn. Good luck and hope this helps.

Creaking noise in front end 1997 explorer

Sounds like it is your CV axles.  Turn the wheel one direction, right or left, and check just behind the wheels to see if your CV boot is cracked or ripped (the boot is a black, rubber accordion looking thing).  If it is cracked or ripped, I would say that is definitely the problem.

Does your vehicle have hub caps if so check to see whether all the clips are ok.
push up and down on each corner and to see if you can hear the noise, it could be a number of problems, ie shocks, bushes, wheel bearings or the bump stops in the shocks.
also jack the car up and check the steering components by wiggiling the wheel left to right looking for excess play and check the CV shafts and boots, usually if the boots are damaged the CVs will either need re greesing or replacing.

When I had this problem on my 99 Explorer, one of the bolts for the sway bar was broken. It is a relatively easy inexpensive fix.
