Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. It could be a number of things to be honest. It may be a bad shock. If so, it would have less stability. There may be something loose in the motor. You may need to check your lug nuts on your wheel. It could be a brake pad that is worn or perhaps a caliper that is loose. I would advise you to check all your bolts on that tire. Check the suspension as well. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks for using FixYa and have a good evening.

I have a rattling sound coming from my front end when hitting bumps. Took it in for an alignment check and the only thing wrong is slightly worn lower ball joints. What could be causing this noise?


rattling noises on bumps can be shock rubbers , stabilizer rubbers or bar ball joints
it could be the lower ball joints as they take all the load

Rattling, clanking sound over small bumps on drivers side front tires area when driving


Check the droplinks for the anti roll bar... some are like ball joints, and they can seize, which causes the symptoms you are getting.

I have a 1997 Nissan Altima and when it drives I hear a lot of rattling in the front end what can it be


IS it constant? IF it does not vary when you hit rough spots in the road then it could be a dust cover on the engine or exhaust. If it makes the noise when it is not moving it might be something wrong in the engine. If you hit bumps and hear it, it is the suspension.

Front end rattle when i hit a bump in a 97 tahoe


If it sounds tinny, crawl under when it is cold and tap the outer heat shields on the catalytic converter first, top and bottom, and then the heat sheld attached to the body. if any of them make noise, that is the source. These are the two likely issues.

If they are snug and quiet, look for anything hanging down. Inner fender liners come loose all the time and may the source as well.

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.

Clunk noise from front passenger side when


That noise sounds to me like a Ball Joint problem. I would check to see if you have fittings to grease the front suspention.

Good luck, Allen
