A loud pop is either cv axle or ball joint so i would try ball joints or could be a-arm bushings also

Is there a bearing or bushing on the shaft that the left axle slides onto on a 1999 Bonneville se?


i have been fooled by this one way to many times. when a wheel bearing or hub assesembly is making noise, it will sound like it is comming from the other side. i do not know why this is. but one test will prove if and which one. when growling noise occurs, notice, when turning left or right, does noise get louder and quieter as you turn? if so then it is wheel bearing. when turning left the right side will make more noise. when turning right the left side will make more noise. if always the same then, tires or transmission need addressing. the cv axle does not make a growling noise, unless front wheel drive car does not move, it makes a clicking or poping noise. sorry but at least you dont have to replace other axle

How do I decide if it's the drive shaft or the CV joint?


It is easier to change the whole half shaft than it is to change just the CV joint.

Bad sway bar


Could be CV Shaft or Hub Bearing as well. Jack up the front of the car, support with Jack Stands and check for play in wheels/hubs/bearings/linkage by grabbing wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock positions for tie rod ends and steering linkage, then 12 and 6 o'clock positions for bearings. You should barely be able to feel play. If you think it is more than acceptable climb under the car while someone else performs the tasks above. Turn wheels for excessive brake noise or out of tolerance discs. Out of tolerance discs will cause premature brake wear and cause pads to move around in the caliper sometimes before starting to grind. Finally, and what I think you're hearing/feeling is the CV Shaft. Grab shaft, move around feeling for excessive play in joint or splines on each end. Turn steering all the way lock to lock and turn wheels at each lock, forward and backward, feel/listen for clicking/popping. Most of the time you can quickly easily diagnose bad CV Joints in a parking lot by slowly, safely driving in a circle forwards and backwards making the joint noise more pronounced. If it is a CV Joint, my advice would be to spend the extra few bucks and replace the whole shaft while you're there. Its quicker and easier requiring less specialty tools to complete the job.

Have replaced all tie rods; inner&outer;struts&upper mounts;sway bar bushings & links;lower control arms with ball joints& passenger side upper motor mount.none of these have changed this noise even s


What noise? And year and make of car?
A clicking noise on turns is a worn CV joint on the axle shafts. A grinding noise at one of the wheels could be a wheel bearing. Worn brake pads may cause squealing, screeching other high pitched noise.

My 924x4 make a loud noise at the front end when turning right on unevenground


Check engine mounts, Check the hub that retains the wheel bearing and hub assembly to the steering knuckle to make sure the bolts are tight and have not backed out.

Then inspect the front suspension for worn bushings, broken anti-sway bar links, and broken springs and or shock mounts.

Also look for damaged CV joint boots. Especially the inner plunge/Rzeppa joint. If a boot is damaged, remove it and clean/inspect/replace as needed. The outer as well. but check the inner for excess play and inspect half shaft for damage or straigtness.

Loud popping noise coming front passenger side of


Most likely cause of loud popping noise would be a broken or breaking cv shaft. The cv drive shafts have a rubber boot around the bearings on the shaft. Look for a broken rubber boot on the shaft that runs from the transmission housing to the wheel hub area of front wheel. If you find a broken or cracked boot then most likley the **** needs to be replaced to solve your problem.

1999 Buick regal. Thumping noise on sharp right turns. Had ball joints and tie rods replaced. Now what?


Check your cv shaft for play or broke cv boot. It could be the grease is gone and the joint is making noise or the wheel bearing hub could also be bad.

How do i replace an right side outer cv boot on a 1998 chev k1500 ?


Pull the wheel off and pull the cv shaft nut off (36 mm) pop off the lower ball joint and tap the cv shaft from the wheel bearing, then it should pop freely from the brake rotor and wheel bearing, you will then have full access to the cv shaft and the boot can be changed easily.
