Q: Car makes noise when turning or slowing down

asked by on

My car has been making a noise every time I turn or slow down.

Hello. Depending on what the noise sounds like would tell me different things. I know that the most common noise I have had on this vehicle is a clicking noise. Most of the time this noise is from a failing front axle. The axle joint wears, even prematurely, and causes this noise. I typically put the vehicle in the air and check for worn joints and see if I can recreate the noise.
