Strange front end noise on my 2007 MKZ

Recommended Posts

I have a weird thumping noise coming from the front of my 07 MKZ. Can't feel it only hear it. It sounds almost like a tire with a bulge in it. Like a whump whump whump that matches the rotation of the tires. From a dead stop to highway speeds. It seems to get louder when I turn the wheel. My tire guy (ex tire guy now) told me it was road noise from the tires I had him put on the car. What a crock. Any how, does anyone have any idea what it could be. I thought maybe wheel bearing but it isn't a growl it is a thump. Also thought of cv joint but that is more of a growl so I am really stumped. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Peace

Is it AWD?

 

Try swapping the front wheels to the rear and see if anything changes.

Sorry I took so long... was waiting for an email saying I had a reply... anyway... I supposedly had the tires rotated a month or so ago but I didn't see them do it so who knows if they really did. (cynical aren't I ?)   I'll try it myself. It is AWD by the way so it is rear wheels to front on same side and front to opposite rear ...correct?  Thanks for the reply

 

Peace
