    did you check the wheel hubs to see if the bearings are going bad.

    one way to tell is if the noise comes and goes when you go around turns if yes then one or both of the bearings needs replacing.

    This thread was from EROCK1 last year, sounds like my truck just want to know what fixed his truck. Thanks Cadillac man gotta get my 34mm socket for my hubs this weekend.


    I have a funny front end noise that happens at random.
    It will happpen going stright. Doesn't matter if your on the gas or costing.
    Driving on a smooth road.
    Sounds like it's coming from the left front.
    It will pop/click like two, three or four times in a row at random.
    Sounded like the inner wheel well hitting the tire but I looked everything over and that seems fine. Took the front wheels off.
    Half shafts and bearings seem ok to.
    Never seen anything like this.
    I don't get any feedback in the truck like something is binding or anything either.

    Finally found the problem, it was my parking brake shoes. The driver side shoes came off the assembly. Thanks for all the help.
