In 2007 I hit a pot hole on the front passenger side and i had to get a new tire and rim. When the dealership looked at my car they told me that I could have possibly tweeked my frame but they were not sure. About 8 months ago I have been having issues with the car shaking and it feels like it is about to fall apart. I have gotton new tires several time due to wear and tear on the front passenger side I have also gotton alignment upon alignment done also. Do you have any suggestions for me?

I have a slight clunking noise coming from the front right(passenger)side of my wheel. My xB has 83k on it, so this could be any number of things. I also have been getting more uneven tire wear on that side in the front. Is this a front end problem, or possibly struts? The brake pads are fine, and rotor looks good with no visible wear on either side.? Brian

I have 94 CHEVY SUBUBAN K1500 4wd. I have had it aligned 2 times, new front tires and the outer edge of the passenger front tire keeps wearing uneven. The driver side front tire is fine.Chould this a wheel bearing going bad or should i take it to a different alignment shop. I have also replaced all front ball joints and tie rod ends before the alignments were done.


Check if your shocks are leaking. Jack up the car and with the right wheel off the ground check it for play in the bearing if it is tight and not grinding it is good. I would try another alignment shop if you dont find anything. Oh by the way dont le ... 1994 GMC Suburban

When I hit a bump on the passenger side front tire there is a rattling sound. There is more than normal wear and tear on the tire. Didn't know if a shock gone bad could cause the wear and tear on the tire

My 1997 Pontiac Sunfie Tires on the front have extreme wear on the inner edge more on the drivers side, than the passenger side they were installed new with only 6000kl driven What causes this .


Hi, The problem is that it is out of alignment. You should have noticed this problem on your other tires. If it was tire balance the wear would be uneven. Take it and have it aligned and rotate the tires and this should Fixya! ... 1997 Pontiac Sunfire

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 front tire and I just blew the passenger side tire a couple of days go. I seem to fix this problem if I hit a pot hole hard, but for some reason its happening more often here lately.

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 whee ... Cars & Trucks

My front left tire is wearing down to often and feels like it is jumping on the road when I have tread wear what could be causing this? It is a smoother ride when I put a good tire on it until the wear begins and the tire shows wear as if the tire was jumping on the outside of the tire, also had a friend see this side in motion and he says that it looks like it is going to jump off I had someone look at it and he said i needed major front end work anyone person looked and said it was bushings to

My passenger side front wheel moves side to side about an inch or two when front end is lifted off ground.I noticed it while i was rotating my tires, i just happened to grab the wheel before i took it off. Theres tension on it but i can still move it side to side. It doesnt move top to bottom. Its not the wheel bearing. I keep all my ball joints greased. It looks like there is play where the steering stabilizer bolts on the passenger side. The drivers side front wheel is tight. Is this norm


Replace inner and outer tie rods my 04 Silverado had the same problem ... 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

On the front passenger side, I replaced the ball joint (it was bad), the tie rod (bad) the wheel bearing (bad) and the CV HalfShaft (bad)....yet.... there is STILL shaking on the passenger side of the car. I had a relative drive the car, he says he's not sure it was the front tire in the first place, and it might be the back tire. While driving it around 55mph the vibration comes on pretty quick, and maintains the vibration until around 70 and quits. The car has new tires.... any help....thanks


The new tires could be out of balance,or even though they are new could have a bad belt in one of them,If it was doing this,the problem,if it was there before the tires were installed,have the front end checked.And you may need a front end alignment. ... 2002 Mercury Cougar

I have a 1997 GMC Sierra. My front left(drivers side) tire wears horribly on the outside. (lookin at the tire from the front of the vehicle, the top leans out, and the bottom cuts in. The outside 6inches wears on the tire, while the inside tread does not wear at all.) I was told something about it being the inner tie rod was worn. But from my knowledge, that would not let the tire lean out like that. I was just wondering if anyone knew what the possible cause/repair-cost would be for that issue?


Align the truck, sound like the camber is out of adjustment the upper control arm is holding it out too much, or your lower ball joint is messed up and lets it tuck in. The tie rods on that truck have nothing to do with it. Ball joints are like 40 bu ... GMC K1500

My 2008 ultima tires will leak air to the extent they are almost completely flat. It started with the passenger side rear almost completely flat. I would fill with air and it will last for 2-5 days. Now the drivers side rear tire is going flat nightly and the passenger side rear is staying inflated. I have also had to add air to both front tires. ALL THIS IS BEING DONE WITH COLD TIRES.

Worn strut mounts to your shocks and springs to a bad wheel alignment. Regard less, inspect to make sure it's not a bad strut mount to the frame. This can cause your front suspension to fail and you'll have no control to where the car will drive to. ... 1999 Chevrolet Lumina

Sounds more like a tie rod end is bad. Try a reliable shop that specializes in front end repair (any place but FIRESTONE). The tire wear could be due to the loose tie rod end throwing the car out of alignment. ... 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

On April 29, 2011, a clacking sound started coming from the area of my right front passenger side tire. The noise from the right front passenger sided starts the clacking noise every time I make a right or left turn and when I take off from stop. This noise continues until my speedometer gets between 25 mph and 30 mph when it makes a light clicking sound for a few seconds and then stop. The clacking or clicking sounds goes completely away when I am traveling @ 35 mph and above. 2 guys who work


It sounds like your noise is comming from your right axle.More than likely its the inner CV joint;because,I'm guessing it is making noise while going straight and not just in turns, and when the joint is under high load like from a stop. ... 2000 Ford Focus
