Metal Brushing sound front right tire 2011 Taurus

Post by kalobandrews » Sat Oct 07, 2017 10:04 am

I've noticed a sound coming from my car between 35 and 65 mph that sounds like two forks rubbing together. It's not a grinding like bad breaks but like two pieces of metal are just brushing against each other. My car also starts to shake around 55 to 65 mph, enough that my arms shake back and forth. Also the car pulls to the right. Any ideas what it is?

Wheel bearing? CV joint?

That's what I've been finding online too. I just don't know if I want to do it myself or take it in.

Also every time I hit a bump it squeaks.

How sure are you that it’s not the brakes? I’ve had abutment clips for caliper brackets out of place sound like “forks rubbing together.” That wouldn’t explain the pulling though, unless you have a stuck caliper. That’s happened to me in rear brakes on my Tauruses but not front. Just a thought..
