front end noise

Asked by Apr 03, 2011 at 11:29 AM about the 2003 Kia Spectra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought a 2003 Spectra. I've noticed a noise that sounds like its coming from the front drive axle. Does anyone know what this might be? I really like the car and @ 32mpg I got a great deal

uld be any number of things that have to do with the suspension. Best thing to do is get it on a lift or ramps. check everything around the wheels and suspension parts.
