Front end rotation noise


It should have been thoroughly checked. Noises like these on four wheel drives could several different things. A bearing, CV axle, or the differential, or bearings in the differential. A wheel bearing will make different sounds when making a turn. A CV axle is a constant sound. Differential bearings can come and go, depending on if it is a bearing for the axle or a pinion bearing. Axle side bearings usually make a constant noise. The differential can also come and go. Depends on acceleration or slowing down. All these sounds are also with a vibration. Slight to harsh.

My 2003 chevy suburban has a loud popping in 4wheel drive in 2wheel it is agrinding noise it is how locking up


It sounds like the front differential bearings are gone. Remove the front driveshaft and see if the noise dissapates. Also, grab the driver side halfshaft by hand and see if it is sloppy where it enters the differential.

Wheel bearing


If grinding noise is heard coming from front side, lift up both the front wheels and rotate the wheels one by one to listen to the sound, if any. If a noise is heard, replace the front wheel bearings as a set.
If the front wheels do not produce any abnormal noise when rotated, lift down the front vehicle. Lock the front wheels with blocks, release the hand brake. lift up the rear wheels and try to listen to the abnormal noise. If the noise is heard, replace the differential bearings and seals. Top up the differential oil to the mark.

Reason for humming noise even after changing wheel bearings of car


Depending on how the noise is affected by your driving, it could be an axle joint or the differential in the transaxle.
If it is coming from the back instead of the front you may still need hub bearings.

I have a noise coming from what sounds like the 4x4 drive axle in front. I have change the gear oil and still have the noise. Any recomendations.


I would check the wheel bearing/hub assemblies as I have replaced several of these. Usually they make a thrumming, rumbling, or growling type of noise that increases with speed and which may get louder or quieter when taking sharper curves at highway speeds. I"ve seen very few problems with the front differentials on these but have put in dozens of hub & bearing assemblies that are noisy or worn. Sometimes, but not always, if you raise the front tires off of the floor a few inches you can rock the top of the tire in & out a bit which can indicate a loose/worn hub but they can also make noise without having any looseness present so it isn't a perfect test. You may need to have the vehicle put up on a hoist where it can be more closely inspected. I have seen some pinion bearings go bad on the front differentials but it is fairly rare. Good luck, hope this helps out a bit.

Clanging noise rear and rear don't pull


The axle probably lost a keeper ring on the inside of the differential and the pieces may be going through the differential and ring&pinion gearing making the noises you hear. You will need to drain the oil out, find the broken pieces, and inspect all gearing for broken/damaged teeth, and for any noisy bearings. Flush the case out with cleaning solvent. Re-insert the loose axle after cleaning and inspecting it well--especially the interior end. Replace the keeper (new) on the axle end inside the differential spider gearing. Inspect the brakes on the loose axle side for any oil deposits and for any damage that might have been caused when the axle came out. If the differential is badly damaged, it might be cheaper to find another rear end in a wrecking yard. Hope this helps!

2003 chevy suburban front axle noise


Worn side bearings is where the noise is coming from and might as well do both sides, I used replace them in about 2-4 hours, depending on where Murphy happened to be. Disconnect both side inner CV joint, front prop shaft and the 4X4 actuator line. If you want to drop the front pumpken. Not sure if you have enough room if you want to change the bearing without removing the pumpken from the frame. You should see when you disconnect the CV shaft.

The front diffs are toys compared to the rear, if you use auto4wd too much there are bearings in your tranfer case that are similar to the side bearings in the front diff. In both appearance and durability and soon you'll replace those too.

Good luck and keep me posted.
