A noise that goes away while turning often points to bad wheel bearings. Another possibility would be brakes. Maybe CV joints, if it's 4wd.
Ok, thank's. Isn't it a bit too early after only 30K?I would've guessed CV's too. I hate em.
Yeah, that happened to my Grand Cherokee. Had to change the whole left front axle and repack the right CV joint and put on a new boot. Which was a pain in the a##. This boot looks good, though.Under normal use, yes 30K is probably a bit early for wheel bearings or CV joints. Probably about right for brake pads. Of course, there are things that could cause the other to go bad early, such as a torn boot on the CV joint.
It will interesting to see what the dealer's shop says it is.
sounds like you have a hub problem to meHey all!
And a very happy new 2008! arty:
I now had my '03 Burb for a month and a half and made som 2500 miles. Total on the meter is 30 K.
I've noticed an annoying (and worrying) sound, which seems to come from the left front wheel. It's a kind of rapidly pulsating rumbling noise. It goes away when I turn the wheel right ever so slightly, but it's there when going straight or turning left. I now have brand new, steel studded tires which gives more of a road noise, but this is somthing else. I'm taking it up with my dealer soon ( :grrrrrr: :rules: ), but would like to have some ideas as to the cause before that.
Any hints would be appreciated.
Yep. Hub and bearing left front was kaputt. New one in place now.sounds like you have a hub problem to me
