I had a similar problem. The mechanic said the shocks are gone. I replaced the shocks and most of the noise (slight grinding sound) went away. I think that was the problem.

I have a similar problem, and i know what the cause is, at least. a few years back, i had my trooper almost vertical in an irrigation ditch and when i had it pulled out, the front right tire was stuck on a grate on the ditch. i could tell when it was being pulled out that some damage was being done because the wheel was tilting in a position that it shouldnt have been forced into. i took it into a local shop and they found up to 2000 dollars worth of repairs that needed to be done. good luck to those of you with a similar problem.

Not a solution, but I'm experiencing the exact same problem! I brought by 1996 Isuzu Trooper (129,000mi) to a Firestone auto service place and they spent TWO HOURS trying to ID the problem. No luck. HELP, anyone?

1996 Chev Cavalier 2.2 automatic When backing up and turning to the right I hear a clunking noise from the front end. Hard to say but I think it's comming from the front left side.


This would be your CV joint going out on that side. Probably has a bit of a grinding feel to it as well. The way to tell which side, and to confirm, jack up the suspected side until the front wheel is just off the ground. Leave the other side on the ground. Make sure you put it on a jack stand or block. Set the parking brake, and Start the car. Put it into gear, and turn the wheel to the side that it normally clunks. It will probably sound fine until you turn to the extreme, and then it will start clunking. Do the same for the other side, and it shouldn't do it. It's usually the outer CV joint that goes out, and often times you can see it by a torn CV boot.

Clunk under auto center front when turning left or right


have your CV joints checked. If the CV joint boots crack, the joint will lose all the grease and accumilate dirt. This will cause a metal grind/ping when making turns. If ignored, it may cause the joint to break causing the vehicle to be stationary and unable to move. Hopefully this help!!

There is a popping sound coming from the front end of my car when I accelerate but only when my car is moving, not when it is parked. Any ideas?


Sounds like your half shafts are going bad. Does it make this noise when turning left or right? If it does your half shafts have gone bad.

Most likely the cv joints need to be replaced. Also check struts.

Ball joint, tie rod end or upper strut bearing. CV joints? Pulling to the left may be an alignment problem with front or rear tires. Get a four wheel alignment.
