SOURCE: i am getting a loud rumble noise at the front end

It,s a wheel bearing. Not all bearings will move when bad. A way to check to see which side it is, is to drive the car (parking lot is a good place) Turn the car at sharp corners , When turning right, if the noise is not as noticable then the the right bearing is bad, because you are taking pressure off the tire. But I recommend that both bearings be replaced. If one is bad the other will follow, if it's not already on it's way out. You can do this job, except the bearings have to be pressed out and in to the hub.

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!

Nissan problem


This is a very typical issue on lifted vehicles being driven on the street. It is important to know that when a vehicle is lifted, the steering and suspension geometry change and characteristics will change as well.
My first concern would be with front wheel alignment. If front caster angles are too severe, the will fight each other over rough surfaces and cause the truck to wander or feel like a shake.
Also, front toe angles are crucial for proper tire wear and stability.
Have the front end aligned and checked. If there are no alignment issues, focus on the shocks and that steering stabilizer. Was the problem there before you installed the stabilizer? If not, check it for proper oil/ gas charge.
Weak or worn shocks will cause the tires to bounce and leave the road over bumps. Since the truck and been lifted, make sure the shocks are the proper length. If they are too short (even by as little as 20mm), they cause rebound problems and make the opposing side overcompensate with a bouncing effect.

Thumping/Banging noise at the front end.


check front-end out, immediately, could be a bad bushing/ control arm, this would need attention, asap, you could lose control of vehicle, or somethingelse is broken, shock, but the control arm / bushing is my bet. get it repaired, unsafe condition !!!

I have 2004 Ford Explorer with a thumping feel and sound. When I drive over 50 mph and let it coast, the thumping starts. I feels as if it's coming from the back but not sure. The check engine light is...


if your lucky, its just a u-joint going out.

try replacing the u-joint which connects the driveshaft to the rear end(differrential), and if that does not solve it, then have your differrential checked out (a bad differential usually wont get all the power to the wheels that its supposed to) or just have it replaced, possibly with a junked differrential form a wrecked vehicle with low miles.

Driving over bumps and rough roads I hear and feel of loose clattering or cliking sounds,as something is loose


most likely your problem is the exhaust system bumping. If it sounds like it is coming from front of vehicle, it may be struts clunking. Rear shocks can also do this if they are worn.

I have a terrible sqeaking noise coming front of my 1999 crown vi


Sounds like the front shocks/struts are too weak to support the vehicle. Stand at drivers front of vehicle and push down very hard watch as vehicle rebounds and bounces until it settles, then try the same on passenger side. Good shocks/struts allow a bounce or so, but will appear firm not loose.keep me posted to your results.
