    Does it do it while your moving? Does it do it while you're stopped too?


    Grab your tire and shake it side to side really hard... does it feel like its loose on the hub? If it feels loose and it doesn't do it while you're stopped, chances are your bearing are going.

    If it does it while you're stopped, on the brake but still in Drive, it could just be your springs settling/creaking. Not sure how to fix that.
