RE: [DMCForum] Grinding in reverse...



When you had that tire off the ground, did you wiggle the tire to see if
there was any play in the bearing?

... and it's not the transmission.

When I back up and turn, I'm getting a nasty grinding up front. It's
coming from the passenger side front wheel and happens every foot or
so of travel. Sounds like a metal on metal rubbing type noise. Doesn't
happen when moving forward, only in reverse, which I don't understand.

Any ideas on what it could be? Here's some more detail for you:

1. This started when we replaced the springs & shocks with DMCH's
Eibach setup last year. So I want to suspect something there, but the
installation looks just fine to me.

2. If I jack the front up, turn and spin the wheel it doesn't happen.
The suspension has to be compressed (car on the ground) for the
problem to show up.

3. I can't see anything rubbing nor any idea how something could be,
but that's what it sounds like.

I'd simply assumed a problem with the tie rod ends or something, since
they were pretty well shot. But I replaced 'em this morning and the
problem still exists. If I don't turn too tight it doesn't happen, so
it's mostly preventable which is why I've let it go for so long (and I
was waiting to replace those tie rod ends). Anyway, it shouldn't be
there and I'd really like it to go away, so any advice would be most
appreciated.
