Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. Your issue could be a few things. I would suspect the stabilizer arm bushings(#16 and 17 in suspension), could be the ball joints(#14 and 10 suspension), the tie rod ends(#1 steering), or if the springs have shifted in the seat(#4 and 7 suspension), they will cause a popping noise.
All of these things could cause your condition. The way to confirm these issues, is to lift and secure the vehicle. Remove the front tires and visually inspect these areas. You will be seeing wear in the form of loose or damages component or boost for the joints.
All these things need to be inspected to verify good condition. I suspect the ball joints or tie rod ends to be the issue, though.
If you require more information on this issue and/or are not satisfied, let me know, please, and I will attempt to assist you further on this. I hope this information points you in the right direction. If you have any further questions or concerns on this issue, feel free to ask. If you are satisfied, and have found this information helpful, a positive rating would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
A positive rating does not close the session. We will still be able to communicate and I will continue to assist you with this issue as needed
I have tried to call you. I will return the call shortly. In the meantime, is the noise a grinding noise? Is it consistent with the revolutions of the wheel?
I am calling now.
So this is more of a rumbling? If so, then I will have to suspect the bearing to be faulty. If this was just a popping upon acceleration or deceleration then I would suspect a ball joint, but if this is a constant sound as the wheel is turning, then the bearing would be the the suspect.
Good morning. Have you inspected the stabilizer arm bushing or the spring seating? The CV axle could also be the issue. If neither one of these false, then I would consider replacing the wheel bearing.
