    Default 1993 suburban 2500 4x4 clicking noise in front tire area

    I get a clicking noise in the front tires it seems like , about 2 clicks for every tire rotation. i have lifted 1 side at a time and spin the tire but no noise.... wheel is tight no play as in a loose bearing. Is there a common reason for this ? also there is a loud squeek on both sides in the front when i hit bumps etc but im not sure these are related could be bad bushings on the shocks it looks like but thought id mention that.

    The clicking could be your brake pads rattling around. Just fixed the ones on my Sub.

    I'm not sure how your brake system is set up, but with mine, I was able to use a large flat punch and a hammer to bend the two clips on the outside against the caliper more. A couple of good whacks should get it.

    Welcome to the club. The clicking could be a front CV joint that is going bad or is bad.

    Sounds like a CV axle. Do you notice it more when your in 4WD? Or when you turn? I would put my money on it beinga CV axle.

    CV Joint. Our trucks have common problems with tearing the boots, throwing the grease out and then they start to click like that.
