Question about 2005 Chevrolet Aveo
The thing is that the car makes the noise when: 1- braking but when the car is almost stopping like: Clunk, clunk, clunk clunk... 2- and when turning curious that does not makes any sound at high speeds, but i dont run the because im afraid it could get worse. i went to a mechanic and he "adjust" the tie rod ends, ball joint, and sway bar link. after he fix those things the car got better, but a day after he "adjust the parts" the noise began. I was thinking to buy the control arm of bought sides and the tie rod ends too... please, hope you can help me....

Sounds like the wheel nuts are not fully tightened on the wheels.I would check that first.Some shops use a "torque" bar when tightening wheels which can result in loose wheel nuts due to rusty/tight/damaged wheel stud threads creating a false torque reading and loose wheel nuts.

Normally the axle does have some end play. A bad bearing usually will give you rumbling noise and have up and down play if it's bad enough.Normally the seal will leak as well. Before you begin taking everything apart, get under there and put your hand on the axle tube nearest the brakes and try to feel where the noise is coming from while someone moves the bed. Listen carefully as well and check anything and everything for movement. The "hand on it" method will allow you to feel as well as hear the shift. I'm almost betting it's not the bearing.

You are on the right track. You may have overtightened the tie rods or the sway bar links. Whenever you do this much front-end work, you should always get the front-end re-aligned. The front-end mechanic will probably find and fix this as a normal part of the re-alignment at no extra cost.

A Ball Joint Can Usually Be Replaced Without Removing The Control Arm From The Vehicle. Place The Vehicle On Jack Stands. Remove The Shock Absorber And Install A Spring Compressor on The Coil Spring.Remove The Nut Securing The Ball Joint To The steering Knuckle And Separate The Knuckle And Then Joint. The Ball Joint Should Be Pressed,Riveted,Bolted,Or Screwed Into The Control Arm.A Service Manual Will Give The Details For The Specific Make And Model Vehicle.
