I got my car fixed after I had a understeer accident and had the sub frame straightened, and I think allot of you remember a few threads that I talked about it. But after I had it fixed I noticed that when I turn left at high speeds I hear a thumping sound coming from my driver side axle area. I thought for sure because the amount of strain that I had been putting on my car from the wheels caster being extremly off from going up on the curb, that the axle was going bad. But I replaced the axle, which helped but it still does it. So now I am thinking its the wheel bearing. What do you think, and how hard and how much does this cost.
creagach...that would most likely be play in the steering system, not the wheel bearing.
yes i know that but don't you think that any play in the steering can cause problems when you TURN, which he said he was having problems with, and also wouldn't you want to check the integrity of the work that he just had done?
Well, thats really wierd then. So if I turn left there is no load on the wheel bearing. And I listen very carefuly and made sure it was coming from the driver side area. So what could it be. I know for sure its not any suspension components that are loose, because I just had a allignment done and the allignment is perfect, and very solid. I replaced the axle, so what the heck could it be? I am perplexed, and sort of worried because I dont want to be on a trip and have my car break down on me.
