    I have a bit of a problem with my '89 K5. Due to work and vacation I haven't driven my truck for about 6 weeks. When I got it out yesterday there was this loud clicking sound coming from the front of the truck. It got louder as a I sped up and when I stopped it was gone.
    So far by jacking up the 4 corners of the truck and spinning the tires by hand, I have found that the clicking noise is coming from the driver's side front tire. I removed that tire just to be sure it wasn't the trim ring making the noise. When I spun the hub without the tire, the clicking noise was still there.
    Does anyone have any ideas on the cause and fix for this problem?
    Thanks in Advance :confused:

    warped rotors can cause the pads to dance around inside the calipers. Check the run-out of the rotor.
    Or you could have a wheel bearing out of adjustment

    Thanks for the help :bow: . Could it also be a problem with the auto hubs? How could I tell?
