front end

  1. Messed up driving

    My trailblazer drives like front tires are on marbles or something. It wanders and feels like it is going to lose control on any kind of bump. New tires. New balljoints and tierods. New alignment all in last 2-3 months. Almost scary to drive. Checked tire pressure try to keep it on factory...

  3. Front End Mods

    I just bought a 2007 Trailblazer LS and i was wondering if there are any mods i can do to the front end to make it look a little meaner without any cutting and under $100. I know it's probably a long shot but i figured its worth asking. Thanks.
  4. 2006 Trailblazer front end conversion to bravada?

    So we have a 2006 Trailblazer that we got into an accident, resulting in the entire front end having to be rebuilt. Out of sale of cost we were getting a parts truck, and one we are looking at is an Oldsmobile bravada, so knowing it's on the same platform we already know the mechanical...
  5. Noises?

    There are noises coming from our 2007 Trailblazer that seem to be coming from the front and the wheel, maybe the right front one. The first is a squeaky noise that sounds like it's coming from the front end when we run over bumps in the road. The other is a "woop-woop-woop" sound that seems to...

  7. Front end noise after major coolant leak and replacing water pump

    Hello Folks, I had to replace the water pump on my 02 Trailblazer. I got everything back together, and I had the classic dirty throttle body symptoms after having the battery disconnected - it would almost stall, rpms around 300 after turning on A/C or defrost. So I removed and cleaned the...

  9. Front end vibration/rattle at speed.

    I have a 04 TB EXT 4x4 that has developed a 'rattle' above 45 MPH. It is more of a vibration in the floorboard than a noise and is only noticeable on a smooth road. The best description I can give is it feels like someone is hitting the floorboard with a rubber mallet intermittently. The...

  12. Front end "thunk"

    Greetings! I need your help with what I fear is an escalating problem. Since arriving in Germany four months ago, and subjecting my TB to many twists and turns on the roads here, I've noticed a pronounced "thunk" in the front end when entering curves and hitting bumps. After reviewing way too...
  13. Complete Front-end Overhaul

    After reading many of the forums here on TrailVoy over the past few months, I consider myself very lucky. I've got a 2004 Envoy XUV, 6-cyl I bought new, that just turned 102,000 miles and the only things I've had to do to it is replace tires, brakes, air filter, wiper blades and battery. I did...
  14. Front end whine / vibration

    I have a 2004 Envoy. I've recently picked up a vibration that feels like something is spinning that shouldn't be in my front end. I used to drive a Jimmy and the hubs would get stuck and not disengage after I used 4WD. This feels very similar. I can switch in and out of 4WD, but the...
