Just changed brakes. Hear a clicking/thumping sound while driving. Is this the CVC joint going out? How to check?


Does the sound get worse when you turn the wheel sharply? Best way to check is to raise the front end and try moving the shaft(s) going to the front wheel. Should not have any play in it.

Light thumping sound when turning,could this be brakes


Could be universal joints, struts, or wheel bearings too! Get underneath your car, put your front end on Jack-Stands for safety, and grab hold of the tie-rods and check for movement up and down. If they seem tight, do the same with your front struts... it's movement your looking for. Spin the front wheels with the wheel covers off and listen for noise. They should spin freely. Brakes usually make a scraping sound... metal to metal. Any thumping when you brake hard... like a panic stop is normal. The ABS brakes are supposed to do this.

What could cause a thumping noise from the front end when turning at low speed?


sounds like wheel bearings-1st
but hopefully your front disc need turning, or replaced.
check wheel bearings by jacking up the front end "CAREFULLY" WITH
JACK STANDS & wiggle tires,if you get more than a 1/4'' slack on 1 or the other, than it's shot. Best to replace both sides. "GOOD LUCK'' &
BE CAREFULL.

When I put the vehicle into 4x4 low and turn there is a loud clunk sound coming from what sounds like the direction the car is being turned to. The car also feels to be getting some resistense when it is...


The Squeak per rotation can be the CV joints inside the rubber boots. The boots are behind the front wheels. A dry joint will fail if not lubed. Sometimes it takes a little friction to warm the grease inside the joint so it will flow to every portion. There are some aftermarket boot kits but the band on either end will allow for access to add grease. Then all you would need is a replacement band and the tool to install it. Autozone or Oreillys loan some tools, they may have the one you need.

For the resistence problem, this is normal. When you are in 4x4 the front wheels will not turn sharply anymore. They will appear to jam. You will have a wider turn radius.

The clunk into LOW 4x4 is also normal. However, if the clunk really is in the direction of the turn you should check the Balljoints and tierod ends. The stress of a freewheeling tire in 2 wheel drive is different than the stress of a drive wheel in 4x4. You can have excess play in one of these parts.

I hope my Reply has helped you and Thanks for using Fixya.

Grinding feeling in left wheel


This sounds like your CV joint is bad if it is a front wheel drive. The CV joint will click or thump when you are turning. It will also make your front wheels shake if it is realy bad.

Vibration and noise from front end while driving


Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.
