    Hey everyone,

    I have a '06 Cobalt LT with a front end issue. I'm hoping I could have insight to what the problem is.

    When I put my car in reverse, and crank the steering wheel all the way to the right and back up, the front end makes a loud snapping/click sound. When I put it in drive and go forward (steering wheel still all the way right) it continues to make that snapping/clicking sound just not as loud. Also when I go over bumps and even when I brake, I hear that snap-clicking sound every time.

    I've had the two front struts replaced with brand new ones about a year and a half ago, sway bar done about 2.5 years ago, and had my sway bar links and bushings done about 6-7 months ago. Not sure if it's the struts because they're relatively new, but shit wears out so I have no idea. I also looked underneath the car and couldn't really notice anything too out of the ordinary.

    If anyone had a similar problem and has insight please let me know. I'd take it to the garage but have had little time to do so, so I came here first.

    Thanks

    The issue can also be caused by worn out CV joints.

    I'm going to say CV joints as well.
