    Passanger side front Humming and clunk noise.

    This dang Eldorado

    It's got a humming when driving straight...A small turn to the right makes the humming go away.

    If I take a left turn in a parking lot with the wheel all the way left, I got a clunking noise from the right side. If I turn all the way right.. Quiet.

    My Theory is : The Right side halfshaft is being pulled and stressed during a left and causing the U joints to bind up and make that clunk noise. When I turn Right I believe the halfshaft is being pressed together and allowing it to turn smoothly.

    How will the Half shafts show wear thru manual manipulation ? Car is on stands : What can I pull or push on ?
