When I put car into drive or reverse there is a clank like dry mettle hitting dry mettle. When I move there is a banging/grinding sound that seems to last while under 40mph You can feel this banging/grinding in the car not the steering wheel. I took drivers side tire off and see wet and dry grease all around axle where it connects to engine. Passenger side looks fine but wheel has about a 3-4" free spin with the ebrake on and at the end of each turn I can hear what sounds like the noise when I am driving. The noise does not get worse when turning in fact it seems like it goes away. I feel no shimmy in the steering and there is no other noises when the car is in motion and shifting. Looks like to me breaks/front (wheel side) cv and bearings are fine, but I am no mechanic. No horz or vert movement in any of the wheels. All noise seems to be coming from engine side. (No abs breaks- I think its a 2.1 - 4 cil.)
have the same problem?
