    just did new rotors, calipers, wheel bearings, seals.. truck does not have manual hubs..

    now i have a clicking coise coming from the front end.. in 2wd..

    it completly goes away when i apply the brakes or turn the wheel in either direction.. but it will pick up speed as i go faster and slow as i slow down..

    checked and rechecked everything but cant really see anything that would cause it.. only thing i can thing of is the pads on the pins.. but its load and dont think the pads have enough space to be creating such a noise..

    pretty sure i can forget the cv since it goes away when im on the brakes..

    im sure its something obvious but ive been starring at it way too long and i must be missing something

    There was another thread on this that stated the pins have too much room in the pads and can wiggle back and forth... maybe? :notsure:

    I'd suggest lifting the front off the ground and spinning each wheel by hand to see if you can isolate the root cause of the noise

    tried that already.. i cant seem to spin fast enough to re create the noise.. or maybe it has something to do with the front end being "un loaded" by being lifted.. idk i am stumped

    brand new bearings in.. no play in the wheel so im assuming its not the bearings..

    if it was the cv it would make the noise all the time.. whether im turning or breaking.. correct?
