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.

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

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
