I have an 04Honda Civic manual transmission that suddenly started making an ugly groaning sound whenever i accelerate, apply the brakes, or turn. It sounds like a metal-on-metal noise like something is loose or cracked. It even happens if I turn the steering wheel when the car is stationary. I tried to listen to where it’s coming from, but all I can tell is that it’s somewhere in the front suspension.
Mechanic said he didn’t see anything wrong on the front suspension, but recommended replacing rear control arms. I would greatly appreciate any ideas. Thank you for your time.
