I have a 2009 Toyota Camry with approx 124K miles on it (my daily commute isn’t that great…). Lately I’ve noticed some vibrations or rubbing when I’m turning:
- There is a constant rubbing/grinding noise when turning. It is more obvious when I turn right. It is definitely coming from the front tires. It does not sound like metal at all. Just like a rubbing noise, that causes a slight vibration up front.
- When I’m driving straight, at a certain speed, I notice the vibration/rubbing sound, but it eventually blends in with the sound of the road.
- The ride isn’t bumpy at all, so I don’t think it’s related to the struts.
- When I pull out of a parking place, turning left, it just feels “loose”, if that makes any sense.
I’ve been searching around online for these symptoms, but it could be a number of things. From what I’ve been reading, it seems to lean towards a bad wheel bearing, or CV issues. Any ideas as to what the problem could be?
