CV joint?
#1311061 - 09/02/06 02:10 AM

When turning to the right at lower speeds i get a creeping grinding sound. When driving straight i get a hiss hiss hiss type sound. I just replaced bearings not to long ago. Could it be the cv joint? I got a couple clicks out of i when i was at full lock to the right doing slow circles in a parking lot.

hello, did you get underneath and inspect the CV boots? They could have a tear in one and it may have thrown out the grease over time. Look for signs of sprayed grease on the inside fender wells. The way you describe the noise it makes now sounds very much like a bad CV joint. Now you need to determine which side it is on. The passenger side is fun to change because of the halfshaft. Just need to be real careful if you change it. How are your brakes? that's a possibility too(hissing-grinding- click click noise). Good luck, and post your findings and progress later.

Sounds like a CV joint for sure. Just buy a rebuilt axle for around $90. Don't try replacing the joint itself.
