Check all the steering joints for looseness = tie rods, balljoints, pitman arm etc. Also check the radius arm bushings at the frame , thier known to brake apart.

Never listen to freinds,You could have taken the auto to a good garage and got the right service,,Now I have changed many bearings and they always make noise as a sign that there is wear, wheels wobble? could be ball joints tie rods or idler arm is my guess,,best thing is to take it to some one who knows how to check everything I mentioned above. than go from there,,,But it dont hurt to have those new bearings in there.

The humming sound is coming from the front of my car could it be the axle baring


Have you tried changing the tyres? Put your front wheels on the back and vice versa, and see if the noise is still in the same place.

I have a wobbling back end seat leon 1.9 tdi 2008 plate


wobbling from the rear end can be from worn suspension rubbers in the control arms. Normally it is from belt separation in the tyres and bulges in the side walls
I take it that it is a front wheel drive with no diff action at the rear.
another point may be that the rear brakes are grabbing ( out of round drums or warped discs) that is causing the vehicle to react as if the rear is loose.

My 04 avalanche makes a clinking noise In front underneath when I hit a bump?


dose it speed up and down when you drivings, it could be you have caught the splash guard onto the brake disc and its catching, if its the wheel baring you need to jack up the side with the wheel still on and turn wheel round check for the sound if now sound, grab wheel at 9 to 3 and shack the wheel feeling for movement should be just a tiny bit with no sound. then do the same at 12 and six if there is a lot of movement the bearing will need replacing same if it makes a clunking sound.

Hit a snow embankment and 2009 Mini will not turnover


Did you hit the front of the Mini? Minis have a very tight engine compartment. If you hit the embankment hard enough it likely damaged the front of the engine and something may be rubbing.

Nissan problem


This is a very typical issue on lifted vehicles being driven on the street. It is important to know that when a vehicle is lifted, the steering and suspension geometry change and characteristics will change as well.
My first concern would be with front wheel alignment. If front caster angles are too severe, the will fight each other over rough surfaces and cause the truck to wander or feel like a shake.
Also, front toe angles are crucial for proper tire wear and stability.
Have the front end aligned and checked. If there are no alignment issues, focus on the shocks and that steering stabilizer. Was the problem there before you installed the stabilizer? If not, check it for proper oil/ gas charge.
Weak or worn shocks will cause the tires to bounce and leave the road over bumps. Since the truck and been lifted, make sure the shocks are the proper length. If they are too short (even by as little as 20mm), they cause rebound problems and make the opposing side overcompensate with a bouncing effect.

Wobble while driving. After inspecting saw that the right front boot on the axle was weather cracked, assuming no more grease inside, what parts do I need to replace?


A CV boot will generally not cause a wobble. If the boot is not cracked open there is plenty of grease inside. If the boot was leaking grease you would see it slung all over the back side of the knuckle, brake caliper, and inside of the wheel.

If the steering wheel is moving back and forth at slow speeds the first thing I would check for is a separated tire or a bent wheel. If you feel the tread of the tire it should feel smooth all the way around. If there is a high spot or bump it is separated.

The easiest thing to do is have the tires balanced. Tell them you are getting a wobble in the steering wheel. They will inspect the front tires closely and if they find an issue have them show you what they found.

2006 dodge ram front end shakes when hitting a bump at 40 + mph please help?


You have to make somebody to check the struts, or shocks, and also the axles, this situation is very dangerous because if the problem are the terminals or the axles, they can be broke while driving and you will lost control of the steering wheel... completely. I mean, no steering wheel working, on a car running...
