Front End Problem
I've got a 2005 cobalt with a front end problem. I recently replaced both of the struts in the front, but now, on the passenger side, when you drive you can hear a loud thumping and shaking sound, and when you slow down or start to stop, you can hear like a weird re-er re-er re-er (squeaking) sound. I am thinking it's my hub assembly, but I am not totally sure. Does anyone know how to check what else it could be? (When it starts rattling it usually does it above 25, and the wheel shakes, but when you start slowing down and are about at a crawl, is when the squeaking starts (brakes or not).
I had the hub assembly on that side replaced once before, and it was fine for about 20 miles, than started doing it again, so it's possible I could have gotten a bad hub assembly, since it was used when I bought it.
If somebody could please offer me some help, I would appreciate it. Today is the only day until next weekend I can work on it, and it's my daily driver so i'd like to get it fixed.
