    jack each side up and try to twist the tire,if it twists up and down or side to side,it needs bearings,also check all the tie rod ends and bushings

Lexus,I recently had the rear subframe out and fixed leaks in differential, I have the car jacked up and in 2nd gear I notice that the drivers side wheel has a wobble in it. Is this a wheel bearing?


No, you check a wheel bearing by grabbing the top and bottom of the tyre and try and rock in and out looking for play. Worn bearing also make a noise when you drive, a whine or a drone. Normal cause of wobble is balance weights falling off, or a bent rim. On my Lexus, I had a slight wobble in the steering wheel and it turned out the alloy rim was out of true.

Why is my front driver side tire wobble when i hit a bump


First, have the tire inspected before you do any expressway driving. you could have a damaged tire with a tread or internal ply separation. second, inspect the front shock absorbers, it sounds like the left front shock has failed and lost its hydraulic fluid. third have the front steering linkage and front suspension checked for worn or loose tie rods, idler arm, ball joints and stabilizer bar links. do this ASAP as you don't want to have the tire fail or any parts break while you are driving!

Driver side front tire


Could be a wheel bearing. Jack the car up and shake the tire. Look for a loose front end part.

Bad vibration in pasanger side front end


Have your wheels balanced. If it still happens, jack up the passanger side and move the wheel up and down. If u have up and down play then its probably the wheel bearing. Side to side can be the same thing, but can be the tie rod ends also.

humming could be wheel bearings - jack car up and spin wheels - they should feel and sound smooth. Grab top and bottom of tyre and try and move backwards and forwards, if it does - whell bearing shot or needs tightening.

Transmission noise could be a driveshaft or gearbox mount being worn / broken. Jack up and move all these bits about and llok / hear for movement and you'll find the mount.

Feels like my front drivers side tire is lose but I check all the lugg nuts and they are tight. I can drive straight and I get a loud sqweal(as if I'm taking a corner to sharp) from the passenger side...


sounds like you have either tie/thrust rod ends going bad, or ball joints. Your wheel bearings could be going bad as well. Any of these can cause this problem. To check the tie/thrust rod ends, turn the vehicle off, and have a friend turn the wheel back and forth while you look at the steering linkages. If you see anything moving more than the part that it's attached to, you have found something that needs replacing right away. For Ball joints, put a jack on the a-arm right beside the wheel. Jack it up, and watch the tire as it starts to come off the ground. If it slides out when it just gets off the ground, you have bad ball joints on that side. Wheel/hub bearings can be trickier, unless they're REALLY worn. Jack the car up so that it's clear of the ground, and see if you can make the wheel wobble by moving it with your hands. You may also notice a grinding or whining sound coming from the affected side. You'll especially notice it if you drive with your window down, as you're passing a building or other hard object, as the sound reflects back at you. Hope this helped you find your problem.

Chevy malibu 1998 make like a grinding noise when i turn right, i brake apart the hub bearing, rotor and cv axle, when i move the axles i feel that the one on the driver side its a little bit hard to move...


the left. when you turn left it pushes pressure on the bearing quieting it down turn right and it pulls the bearing you can verify this by jacking up the vehicle and tilting the wheel top to bottom you should be able to feel the play in the bearing if its making noise

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.

Front wheel seems about to fall off


It sounds like the Bearings are out on that Wheel. You Could have caused damage to the Spindle in addition. Not a Cheap Fix by any Means. Check the Bearings and Spindle for Breakage.
