View Full Version : CLICK sounds from hub

01-01-2008, 10:13 PM
Hey all... I am having a bit of a problem with my truck and am wondering if anyone can lend a hand explaining to me what you think it is.

During my little trip out to Stave today, I decided to check out some of the trails behind the river bed. When I locked the front hubs and driving in low I heard a clicking sound coming from my front driver side hub area. This happened while going very slow, straight, and on no incline. I was going through about 1/2' of snow at the time. I unlocked the hubs and it stopped. I tried locking again and it started up again.

Anyone able to give me any ideas on what this is? This is a new setup and should not be doing this.

Sounds like a universal.

Please forgive me if this is a stupid answer, The only thing I know about the front end is I have "smurfields"

jack up the front, lock one side then both, listen to the gearset, check universals and then if all is ok, take the hubs apart.

smurfs make noise..... get used to it.... or get longs. as long as it isnt a cluck, or steering isnt inparied...... live with it.

Edge of smurf might be hitting the housing as it turns, my longs are really tight but no sound from them.
