front end noise

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.
