The noise in my 1999 Malibu didnt sound exactly like the chess pieces you were speaking of but more like a hollow plastic dragging noise when I am going very slow almost like a stereo cd reciever plug dragging but only when the front left wheel has rotated to certain points. Is that a similar problem with the cv joint or is it the same thing? Also my Malibu just had the left sway bar snap off yesterday from what appears to be just a previous bad welding job and its gonna cost me like 100 dollars to replace. I would like to know if the plastic noise is related to the severage of the sway bar and will it lead to a more severe problem later or if it can wait to be repaired?
