You tires may be to big for your truck. turn your wheel and look at them to see if they are rubbing. it my be rubbing on a plastic cover they put on under the wheel wels to keep the water from flying into the vehicle while driving while raining

Just bought 2002 expedition triton v8. When turning the steering wheel you can hear a squeeking grinding sound from the front axel! Truck still turns properly! I checked power steering fluid and its full...

Suggest you jack the truck up and support it on the frame. Then have someone get in and start and turn the wheel slowly in both directions. Also take a close look for rub signs in the wheel wells, if the tires are bigger than recommended, they could rub when turning tightly.

Turns to far to left tire rubs frame

Most likely your alignment is out of spec, you are running to wide of tires, or your wheels are aftermarket with a different offset. If your tires are too wide or the offset it wrong you can add wheel spacers to move the tires away from the wheelwell but make sure to do both fronts if you go this route. Otherwise you can take it to a shop and they can adjust the camber to allow the tire to not rub anymore.

Sounds like tire rub when turning right or left

It may be your power steering. Try checking the level of the power steering fluid. If you are not familiar with where this is check your owners manual and it will definitely tell you where it's located under the hood. If the fluid is at a good level it is most likely something to do with your wheel alignment. This can only be checked and serviced by a licenced motor mechanic or specialist alignment centre.

Good luck

The front right tire clicks when driving. the speed of the clicking increases as speed of the car increases. what is causing the clicking sound?

possibly a cv joint is going or perhaps a wheel bearing. any other symptoms ? in a parking lot turn the wheel all the way to the right and drive slowly in a circle and listen for a clicking sound... then turn it to the left and repeat. make sure it's an empty parking lot and you don't hit anything.

Noise coming from front of car

It sounds exactly like a wheel bearing problem.The right side its seems would be the problem. When you turn right it puts more pressure on the bad bearing making it louder. I would suggest replacing both. If on is gone the other one isn't far off. Hope this helps

04 Expedition Front end Noise?

did you recently have new tires or rims put on? because it sounds like your tires are rubbing on your wheel well/mud flaps. if that's the case you'll either need to: downsize the tires/rims, remove the plastic covering the wheel well (not the body panel of course), or you could always get a lift haha :)....hope this helps ya out, good luck!

When making turns I hear a rubbing sound. It makes me think I may need power steering fluid, but it is full. The tires are not rubbing against anything either

Thisis a common problem, it is cause by air bubbles in the steering system. Raise the car front and put jacl stands,Be sure the tires dont touch the ground. engine not running turn the steering wheel fullleftand right for ten times. You must go full left to right or viceversa for ten ties/this will solve it
