Q: Car shaking and cracking.

asked by on

My car makes a loud cracking noise when I turn the wheel. The car also shakes when accelerating around 15 to 30 MPH.

The cracking noise may be from the front axles or suspension problems. The shaking may also be from the axles. I would recommend having a mechanic like the certified ones at YourMechanic come and check it out for you to see what is causing the problem. They could check the complete front suspension and drivetrain to see why you are having the problems.
