I have a 2011 Subaru Forester. I recently heard a click sound on my left front
side wheel. I paid 50.00 to get is checked and the mechanic gave me a list
of things. One being 2 lower control ons. I had those replaced. The sound is
still going, the front left wheel feels weird makes the same click sound and it
shakes when I go passed 60 on highway. This is all from one day to the next.
I am already 550.00 in the hole. It has 143,000 miles on it. I do my best to
take care of it. HELP DESPERATE!! Thinking maybe its the Ball joints??
Wheel bearings, CV joint or axle.
Thank You CV joints and axle were fixed last year
Will have him check all three again. Thank You
Could be a left BJ, but perhaps a bad reman CV axle. BUT we've seen solid front ends still click a bit when starting a left turn. It's a CVT/axle bearing interface noise that is best ignored, as replacing the CVT...even if used...will cost $1.5k min. Most "boppity-bop" sounds are from loose swaybar bushings or worn out end links. Cheap and easy fix. Good luck.
Thank You guys
I've decided to search for a new mechanic. I did a lot of research and read some good reviews. I met with him this morning and he took it for a spin. Sure enough he says its the Axle. I didn't mentioned anything about what I was told from this forum. BC these cats can be a rip off and especially me being a woman. SUCKS can't trust no one. Anyway I have a good feeling about them. I am over the two mechanics I've been dealing with. IT's time to switch it up! Stay Tuned!
