      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Squeek in right front tire area

Recommended Posts

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?

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.

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
