Squeek in right front tire area

14 posts in this topic

06 Chev 1500 ext cab 4x4 74,000 miles with a 5.3 . I noticed tonight that I have a squeek in the right front tire area and it makes the squeek when I'm going straight sometimes and almost always when I turn right. One time while going straight it growled just a bit for a few seconds but mostly a squeek.

I took the right front tire off and the brake pads are fine. I'm lost but figure maybe a cv joint or bearing or something.

Help

Depending on the squeak, but my guess is bearing, the growling may mean its broken, I wouldn't drive it too much before making sure. Its alot easier doing bearings before they weld themselves to shaft. Been there, done that. With those miles, thats my guess.

It does sound like you have a bad bearing, When you had the truck jacked up, any chance you shook the tire to look for loose parts? Also possible its just a rusty rotor, does the noise change while stepping on the brakes?

I would check for rust build up on the inside of the rotors also.

Is there a particular speed it starts at. Is it a constant squeak or a rhythmic squeak, squeak, squeak. I would also like to know if it stops when you hit the brakes.

No rust buildup at all. I noticed today it may be the 4 wheel drive. If its in auto, and I step on the gas, it growls or when its in 4 hi it does the same thing. In 2 wheel I don't hear much. Transfer case?

Transfercase or a hub, front differential?

i would almost bet it is a bearing assembly on that side. if i remember right you cant just change bearing on that vehical, it is a assembly you have to buy.

The right front bearing was shot. Downside, the bearing comes with the hub and all the Anti lock brake wiring. End result, $430.00

I guess it's not the worst for parts and labor. Not like the old days when you just replaced the bearing or greased it. But, what is?

Not much Harvey Lee, not much! I remember when it used be .$89 for spark plugs, now I looked at the iridium plugs for my 6.0L chevy and $7.89 per plug shockedcry

You probably don't have an Optimax motor, so you don't know about their $ 17/each spark plugs, over $ 100 to replace 6 plugs !!!!

No....My old "87" Evinrude costs me about $6 to change 3 plugs, I guess I do have some thing to be grateful for grin

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
