If im right about the noise, its your cv joints. You can tell which one it is on hearing which side its coming from.

Well I believe its coming from both sides.however i did change the passenger side cv axle but not the driver side.and it only does it when im making a u turn.

when you turn the wheel all the way to the left or right you here a popping noise when the car is rolling.

That loud popping noise is most likely a sign that your CV axles are worn out. If you turn to the right and you hear the noise most likely it is the right side. and visa versa for if you turn left.

If it is a front wheel drive vehicle it could be a bad CV joint. In a rear wheel drive car it could be a bad universal joint.

Strut, ball joints, roll-bar coupling, wheel bearing

Normally a wheel or halfshaft bearing will whine at speed and will grind at all speeds, when severely worn.

You probably need new tie rods on that side. have someone turn the wheel and check to see if you have in play any where.

When you turn the steering wheel and hear a popping noise, it could be due to the power steering pump and a sticking valve so there is not enough hydraulic pressure. It could be caused by the steering linkage going out or low power steering fluid.

I have a 1997 GMC 1500 4 Wheel Drive. When engaging 4 wheel drive there is a popping noise (different than and in addition to the normal sound of it engaging) and it does not always engage. Then it will even have a popping noise once engaged. Any ideas? Thank you for your input. Stan

If the sound is a popping sound when turning it is a CV axle, If the sound is a squeaking sound it is most likely your upper strut mount, or a wheel bearing.

The popping sound could be a couple of things first off is your wheel tight? check lug nuts. Some of other causes may be damaged rotors and pads. check them by removing wheel and looking for damaged parts or worn out pads. other things could be front wheel dive axle CV joint but you would hear this when turning also.

the steering wheel wont make the front wheels make noise as there is no generating source from the steering wheel. it will be the other way around.

If a car is making a grinding noise in the right back wheel, it could be a sign that a wheel bearing is failing. It is necessary to take the car to a qualified mechanic for repair.

sounds more like a CV joint because of the popping, although wheel bearings do make noises like that when they are worn.

Worn left front wheel bearing.

When the wheel bearing goes, you will usually hear a whining moan noise that will increase as you drive faster, and decrease as you slow down. If the noise is coming from the front, you can determine which wheel it is by steering the car left and right as you travel. Steering the car left causes the weight to shift to the opposite (right) side and vice versa. So if the noise gets louder when you turn right, the left side bearing is worn out...louder when you turn left, the right side is worn out.

A front popping on the left of a 98 Blazer could be the brakes, steering, or wheel bearing. Check all three to find the cause.

User Avatar

There are several things that could be causing this noise to come from your front wheel well. You could have a faulty wheel bearing, a brake could be dragging, or a hub is rubbing.

User Avatar

Could be a bad CV joint or something to that nature.depends on what kind of noise it is

User Avatar

My guess is your brakes might need some work. It all depends on what kind of noise you're talking about, though.
