    ok so i drove my truck to a car show today at 60+ for about 1 hour. when i got home i noticed a clickin noise not loud or scary just htere. i go to work, by the time i get htere it is soo bad that just idleing around the parking lot it clicks consistanly every sec or so. I get off work, it still does it, but once i get to about 45ish it goes away. When i got home i sprayed off each wheel. the pass front exploded with steam. I sprayed the hubs/rotors.

    WTF!? is this a sticking brake or a bearing?

    this is my dd and i need to fix it SOON! hahaha the its 10b axles with auto hubs in the front. and come to think of it the pass side hub is blown and doesnt like to unlock. and no its not in 4wd actually my front shaft isnt even in. HELP!

    The steaming off or your brakes is just because your brakes were a little hot. Probably not related to your problem. Is this problem relative to RPM or speed? We need a little more info.

    speed, gawd i hope not rpm brand ****in new motor only 300 on it :0 hahah.

    lilke i said, the faster i go the faster the clicking goes. the reason i was concerned with the steam is only the pass side steamed up NOT the drivers. and today my brakes were kinda squeaky in stop and go traffic. hmm

    300 miles on the new motor? Are you sure you haven't developed an exhaust leak?

    In my experience, most clicks and ticks are exhaust leak related. Hopefully that's all it is, my friend. Let us know what you find. :thumb:

    if your rolling slow and hit the brake does it go away?

    Mine does the same, its the pad in the caliper catching on the a warped rotor or something along those lines and the pad probley has oblonged holes from sliding up and down on the rotor.

    tap the brakes real light while your rolling see if it stops if it does, figure out which side and pull the wheel off. I could spin my rotor around fast enough (by the lug studs) to hear it. brakes are good I'm going to let it go for now :dunno::whistle:

    not exhaust leak, bc it only does it when moving. it was my rear u-j... im retarted LOL< and i also had a collapsed brake line in the front. that was causing the caliper to stick.

    Yeah, I had a u-joint go bad that sounded just like that. It was a Napa Precision U-joint, less than 500 miles on it. By the time I tracked down the noise, there were no bearings in the caps, just dust. Greased them too when I installed them. Never using that brand again.

    Glad you found your problems...

    heh, i used to buy the cheap lifetime warranty joints, 2 at a time, replace the broken one with the new one and go swap it out, after the 2nd or 3rd time breaking a cap, i bought a non greaseable from napa and it worked upuntil i sold the truck

    Ahhh, the old "marbles on glass" u-joint tick. Yes, I know exactly the sound you're referring to. Thanks for the update, my friend.
