    Default Cultus VXL Issue

    I have been experiencing one problem with my Cultus VXL since I have bought it. A pinching noise comes from front wheels (and seems to be travelling to the steering) when it is being driven on sufficiently irregular road.
    Somebody told me that this is related to power steering and a built-in VXL issue. I would like to ask if anyone of you having VXL is experiencing the same problem or if someone knows about its remedy?
    It stops giving noise when nuts are tightened somewhere close to the front wheels but it starts again in a few days. I am absolutely tired of this issue.
    Please help!!!

    Jack your car up and see if you got a play in a front tire. If the tire goes back and fourth you need bearings.

    or you might get away with repacking your car bearings with grease.

    then why does it happen that when the nuts are tightened, it becomes smooth? Is it somehow related to the bearings?

    there is also one more thing that when the nuts are tightened, the steering becomes tight and doesnt feel like a real power steering.

    Hello!
    looks like the problem lies in the Steering Shaft U Joint....!
    it its much space there that it has to be....it makes a noice when on bumpy road....!!! and steering will jerk a bit....!
    if its not that get the front portion of suspension checked...
    maybe something is out of grease...
    Thanxxx
