THE FRONT PASSENGER SIDE TIRE MAKES A NOISE

I have a 2001 Hyundai Sonata. I'm pretty sure it needs a front end alignment since the steering wheel has to be turned toward the left to make it go straight. I've had two different opinions given to me on what it could be, a tie rod and/or a axle or cv joint.

Do you
have the same problem?

You could have a bad tie rod causing issues have you checked it for a bad tie rod yet?The cv axle isnt going to cause the steering wheel to not be straight down the road or the wheel to squeal while driving?

I haven't taken it to a mechanic yet, plan on calling around for prices this week on getting that done. Just wanted to see what some other ppl's opinions were on the matter.

A bad tie rod can throw the alignment off and cause the tires to fight each other while driving down the road. Before the alignment you need to make sure everything in the front end is good.
