I have a screeching somewhat grinding sound when turning wheels at slow speed or stop on my is300. I have read many places it could be the belt tension pulley going out, but could there possibly be any other causes cause it sounds like it is coming from my wheels. Any reply's will be greatly appreciated.

Turns out to be my sway bar bushings

After much research i found the problem to be my sway bar bushings. First thing i will do is drop the sway bar and grease up the bushings with some marine grease some magic lube see if that works.

I started having this problem a couple of weeks ago. The noise is loudest for me is after I start my park and make a turn. Like leaving my job parking lot. After the awhile, I still hear it every now and then when turning.

I'm glad someone pointed this out. I'll def. look at that link.

It turns out to be the sway bar bushings at the endlink

On our IS'es we have some rubber bushing that connect the sway bar to the endlink check those bushings they are cheap to replace they will be broken and smashed cheap ass rubber replace with polyurethane ones :cool:
