Hello all,

Here with another issue. I was driving home tonight and my car all of sudden starting making violent vibration when I was turning right. However when I turn left it's fine. There was something in the road the and I ran over it and my bumper got pretty screwed. It was rubbing and hitting against the tire. I ziptied it and ever since I did that it was fine. Now all of sudden it started doing that again. It is pretty hard to explain the noise/vibration and I am very scared driving it anywhere. I will try to post a video tomorrow if I can just have the car stand still turn the wheel to see if it makes any noise.

Till then, any one have any idea what can be causing this? I am losing my mind with this car and every damn time I get paid, I spend my most of my check fixing it.

Check the cover under the front end (belly pan). It may be loose and getting into the wheel when turning.

worn control arm bushings make the scariest things so I would start with that.

put a wheel wrench on the lug bolts and try to imitate tightening the bolts. if the wheel has some play, most likely the bushing

Thanks for the possibilities everyone. I drove it for a little bit this morning and it stopped doing it. But yes, I think it is time do replace the bushings. RIP wallet.
