    Slight knocking sound from front left wheel ??>

    Just noticed this after I did my brakes. a reminder I just swapped all 4 rotors and they were so siezed on I was whaling on the rotors with a hammer. the front left wheel now only over small bumps emits a slight knocking sound. Sounds like a dead strut or a ball joint not sure.

    any ideas?

    Could be a worn wheel bearing or ball joint.

    sell it




























    jack it up and grab the tire top and bottom, try to move it back in forth if it moves watch your ball joints. if they are solid then it is prolly your wheel bearing. if you are on sure grab the tire at the 2 and 8 o'clock postions, if it still moves its most likely the wheel bearing

    I will admit when I was smacking the rotor to get i off I did miss just a few times. I'll check it out when I install the new wheels/tires. i plan on going with new struts with the springs so that can eliminate that possibility.

    Check the caliper brackets for tightness, check the slide pins for being able to move free, check for ball joint/tie rod end play. If you good there it sounds like a shock problem.. Im dealing with the same BS on a tired bird
