Help! Loud popping/Clicking Noise from Front End When Turning on Dry Road? 03 Escalad
Okay I Really Need Help Here Guys!
I Picked up an 03 Escalade AWD Lastnight & It was raining during the test drive & It drove fine.
i bought it & driving home (3 hrs later) stopped for gas & (rain stopped,Dry Road) when i made a turn to park the car it felt like something was POPPING/CLICKING Very Loaded & Felt like something was going to POP Off!!...i Tried it again & it kept doing it.
so be the time i got near home it was raining again & the roads we're wet. I Tried turning & it did not do it.?
so it's only happening on dry pavement?
it does has a snow tires on it but i've had 15 Escalades & tahoes over the years with snow tires & never felt anything like this?
sounds kinda like a CV Joint but it clicks when i turn left & right?
And yes i know how AWD Feels when turning. Like i said i've had a ton of these & This ain't Normal.
I Bought the car lastnight & haven't told my wife about the prob.
i'd like to fix it before she finds out.

it could be a cv joint going but it you also have wheel bearings in the front also it could be the u-joints on the driveshaft making the noise so what i need to know is where the noise is coming from to help further.
p.s. i doubt it being the snow tires as i have a set on my 03 no problems.
