The mechanic should be checking you side bushing . if the shock is fine then try to check the bushing it could be the problem.

My car is soft on cornering since I put on a set of Michelins?

Check your tire pressure. Some tire places will just put 35 PSI in and not check what is called for by the cars manufacturer. There should be a sticker on the drivers door or door jamb. Sometimes it maybe on the drivers side rear door or jamb. It will also be listed in the owners manual. Also check that you have the correct size tires on the car. Side wall height can have a significant effect on handling, and ride.

Front is making noise when I turn


Check your wheel bearings and ball joints. Checking the wheel bearings: stand next to the front tire, crouch down, put your hands on the top of the tire, and try to rock the top of the tire by pushing the top of the tire away from you and pulling the top of the tire toward you (rock it hard and fast). do both front tires. Any noise or sideways movement of the tire is bad, (Bearings are worn) and needs to be repaired. Then, stand at the front corner of the car, and push down on the front corner of the car repeatedly (rocking the corner of the car up and down (Rock it up and down Hard) If you hear the popping noise your ball joints need to be replaced. If these tests don't work but you still get the popping noise when you drive, take the car to a mechanic. Popping noises from the front end of a car is dangerous. If anything happens up there, you could lose your steering!

Steering wheel and front end shakes with knocking noise

easiest check struts for leakage or if the top nut came loose.
next Ball joints support bottom of lower control arm and try to move tire in and out on the bottom.
next check bearing plate for movement by trying to move top of tire.
last check tie rod ends by moving as in right turn left turn.
do both sides. if one side is bad replace both sides so you don't have to tie up vehicle in a couple months.

There is a weird grinding noise come from underneath my subaru. The sound seem to be coming from the fron passegner side, and stops when I apply brakes(even a slight touch of the brakes. Thak you.

jack up car on passengers side and see if tire is tight, it may be a bad wheel bearing. to check, see if there is any movement in tires. rotate the tire and see if noise is there. a way to check for a bad wheel bearing is to jack up tire, then apply emergency brake and put foot on brake start car and put it in gear ( foot on brake ).release the brake real slow and the tire will spin,do not give it gas, so you can tell if the bearings are bad. be careful not to let car lurch forward! if not the bearings. you may have a worn brake pad on that side etc. good-day !!

My front wheel sensor shows low tire pressure, but it is fine. Is there a reset for that?

If its reading low and the tire pressure is correct there is a problem with that sensor. Typically they need to be replaced in order to correct the problem. A TPMS tool capable of displaying TPMS sensor data would confirm the bad reading.

They display the tire pressure as a convenience. They don't have to display the pressures and many makes/models do not.

The level of sophistication with these systems is slowly improving. Many newer models will automatically know where the tire is and display it correctly. Unfortunately yours need to be relearned manually after every tire rotation which is very common with earlier systems. It is assumed that this is done after every tire rotation which would then make the displayed tire locations correct.

If you are confident that the correct tire location is being displayed than I wouldn't see any issue with replacing that sensor. If you are not confident the correct tire location is being displayed than it wouldn't be a bad idea to do a relearn procedure.

The TPMS matching process is outlined below:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the
engine off.
3. Press and hold the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE)
transmitter's LOCK and UNLOCK buttons, at the
same time, for about five seconds to start the TPMS
learn mode. The horn sounds twice indicating the
TPMS receiver is ready and in learn mode.
4. Start with the driver side front tire. The driver side
front turn signal also comes on to indicate that
corner's sensor is ready to be learned.
5. Remove the valve cap from the tire's valve
stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing
or decreasing the tire's air pressure for about
eight seconds. The horn chirp, can take up to
30 seconds to sound. It chirps one time and then
all the turn signals flash one time to confirm the
sensor identification code has been matched to
the tire/wheel position.
6. The passenger side front turn signal comes on to
indicate that corner sensor is ready to be learned.
Proceed to the passenger side front tire and
repeat the procedure in Step 5.
7. The passenger side rear turn signal comes on to
indicate that corner sensor is ready to be learned.
Proceed to the passenger side rear tire and
repeat the procedure in Step 5.
8. The driver side rear turn signal comes on to
indicate that corner sensor is ready to be learned.
Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat
the procedure in Step 5.
9. After hearing the single horn chirp for the driver
side rear tire, two additional horn chirps sound
to indicate the tire learning process is done.
Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.
If no tires are learned after entering the TPMS learn
mode, or if communication with the receiver stops, or
if the time limit has expired, turn the ignition switch to
LOCK/OFF and start over beginning with Step 2.
10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure
level as indicated on the Tire and Loading
Information label.
11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.

This info can also be found on page 5-66 of your owners manual.

Whinning noise when drive.

Maybe you have a bad wheel bearing. You could jack up the wheels one by one and turn them to listen. Or you could put the rear wheels on jackstands and put the truck in drive so you could listen for noise in the differential or drive train. The bit about cornering makes it sound more like an individual wheel though.
