View Full Version : Scraping noise when driving

Long story short, my car was making this scraping noise when driving, more noticeable when turning. It had made a similar sound before when it needed an alignment, so I got one done. Sound went away. Then I was in a parking lot, and accidently drove forward into a curb, not that hard, but it was a jolt. Nothing damaged at all. But, the scraping sound returned.

So could I have knocked it out of alignment again?? Or perhaps even the CV joints are going bad? I notice no vibration or pulling or anything. Could it be the brakes? It's not a high pitched sound, just like a low pitched scraping noise, maybe something is hitting the wheels?

CV joint would only click. Prolly wheel hub bearing (meaning changing out the whole hub.. 100 bucks from autozone) or you need a brake job.
