Hello, If you have rear disc brakes check your Emergency brakes inside the rear Rotor hub. Sometimes the lining of the E brake will rust away from shoe and float inside the drum portion. It is more apparent after stops and after backing up a distance and then going forward.

There can also be clutches in the limited-slip differentials which can act up around corners. Some Models use a friction compound in the rearend to help the clutches work and on 4 wheel drive units the rear differential may use a synthetic gear lube while the front axle uses a normal lube.

Check your E-brakes and if you still have the problem, pop off the differential cover and see what is in the bottom of the housing. This will give you the opportunity to clean inside the axle housing and replace the lube with something you know belongs there.

1999 rav4 rumbling rubbing noise and feel when cranking wheel in reverse


A couple points here:
it is probably just the tire rubbing on the inside of a wheel well. Have a tire shop or mechanic check for wear of suspension components. Excessive wear on suspension arm bushings, ball joints, struts, etc. could cause "slop" or excessive travel forward and back which is not normal.
Itis also good practice to NEVER turn to steering all the way to the stops in any four or all-wheel drive vehicle.

I own a 2006 pontiac torrent...there is a rough vibration that feels like it is coming from the front end...had new brakes put on and the problem still exist


If the vibration is always there and it gets worse the faster you go then you have bad tire or tires on the front.

Is there an adjustment for the steering box on my truck. feels like i am steering a boat. just had pitman arm replaced and front end aligned, still feels loose?


Yes, the box is adjustable. The front end guy can do that adjustment. I hate the condition that you describe. Are you using Light Truck (LT) tires. Car tires have softer sidewalls and also contribute. I have a Mercedes, also and it steered WORSE than my van. Van had truck tires, put tires with more sidewall plies on Mercedes and was VERY happy, tire guys thought I was nuts, but this issue causes driving stress.

I have a 96 integra and it feels and sounds inside the car like I am driving on large studded tires all the time. When I go around a right corner, the sound disipates or goes away, but when driving...


This sounds like a wheel bearing, look in the right front, actually, just replace it, you cannot actually test beyond your stated facts...The case hardness goes away and is not necessarily loose.

I have an 03 dodge caravan and sometimes at low speeds feels like something is rubbing on the tires when turning corners.


it is possible that the wrong size tires are on the vehicle or possible a strut or shock is worn check the manual or dealer for the correct tire size and match them to your van and try opushing down on the fender on the side that seems to rub three times and if the car bounces for more then a couipple times it is probably a broken shock or strut

When i put it in four wheel drive and try to turn it feels like the tire is rubbing the fender well and its difficult to turn


Most 4wd vehicles naturally are hard to turn tight corners when 4wd is engaged.because of the wheels working against each other (normal trait of most true 4wd vehicles)If it is truly rubbing a wheel there should be a clean spot in the inner wheel well or on the frame does your trailblazer have stock size tires on it?.....oversize tires could be your problem.If you don't detect a spot where it has been rubbing there may be a universal joint or CV shaft(constant Velosity shaft) problem.or even a worn or bent\broken suspension component allowing the wheels to turn further than they are designed to turn
hope this helps.....Good luck!

AWD acting like all wheels are locked up


  The clutch in the transfer case is burnt up and fused together therefor binding the powertrain. If you continue to operate it like this it will destroy the front differential and possibly the rear differential. It was most likely cause by the tires not having equal circumference either due to a mismatch of tires (different brands although the same size is indicated on the side wall will have different measurements,I have seen BF Goodrich tires have a different size because speed rating was different although the model was the same) or lack of tire rotation during the life of the tires.. If the measurements are not with in 1/4 inch around the center of the tread this will cause your concern. Tires should always be replaced at all 4 corners on all wheel drive vehicles.
