Weird noise/shitter when turning left.

Got a friend (clearly a lie) with a 110. When he turns left/not full lock and not every time he gets this weird shutter. At first I thought it was the brake shield but I don't think it's that. Coming from front I think. Others think under neath.

Any ideas?

CV or hub. Just guessing since I've been spared such issues. Got to start somewhere.

Got to admit the title through me with "shitter". You're bound to catch some flack.

"Shutter/shitter all the same" really probably means shudder.....

If you turn the wheel no brakes does it happen? Now turn the wheel with brakes does it happen?

Lift front axle off ground. Both sides. Engage gear (center diff unlocked). Test.

Tires aren't hitting but I thought that. Brakes are tight.

Define shudder. Do you feel it in the seat? In the steering wheel? Is there a noise? You have provided us practically zero information.

Any clunk? Swivel bearing (upper) may be worn/separated.

My failed CV didn't make a loud clacking. I did get the odd binding when turning though

Yours probably broke.

The clacking comes from a worn CV joint, not a broken one. Worn ones tend to originate from loss of lube or contaminated lube.

As to Barry's problem, it could be a lot of things and you really need to get it on stands and look at everything.

I like giving no information and having everyone guess.

I will ask about CV joints.

My point is that it would be best to investigate other causes as much as possible first especially when paying someone to fix it. To open the axle and look at a CV, you'll be charged 3 to 4 hours labour and when you suggest it, you are pretty much giving them permission to dig right in.... It could be a lot of things.

Really doubtful that you have a worn CV unless the swivel seal is completely gone and the swivel is full of dirt. Being that you don't go off road, I would doubt it.
