Two years ago it started with clicking noises when turn right. It got worse, now when turn left or right there were loud clunking noises, some time it sounds like rubber rubbing and at slow speed while making turn there were jumps feels like the tire is coming off. Replaced new drive axils, front wheel bearings and shock assembly none of those solve the issues. Last thing to do will be the Intermediate Steering before junk this Impala. -
