Front end noise after warming up...

Postby jefe » Mon Feb 25, 2013 11:37 am

Hey guys...I'm having some odd ball noises come from what I'm guessing is the front end suspension, tires or axle but only after the BII is warmed up and driven for 20 to 30 minutes...then while turning at slower speeds, I get this chattering noise like the tires are skipping or something.

It's a bit strange and was thinking maybe one of you guys out there has experienced this before.

It's an 87 4wd BII, automatic.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Thatsvone of those things that you have to be present to diagnose. could be anything. u joints, bearing, locking hubs... Have someone crank the wheel while you stand in front of the truck and seevif anything looks out of wack.

Hey Jefe,
Do you happen to have a trak Loc front diff? I have see them act that way. I would also look at the hubs and see if they are really releasing.. Oh Oh Oh I have seen a bad axle shaft joint cause some grief too.

Just thinkin ya know!
