Bad sound while turning left
I have a very dull thud when I turn left. When I'm going straight or right, its a click, Like a rock in my tire. NO CLUE what it is. I can feel it through my seat when I'm turnin left, it's very very dull. Any ideas??? Thanks guys.

:thk:Man.............I wish i knew. I know on mine i was having some wierd noises but the sounds werent the same. It ended up being my front wheel bearing. Not sure if thats any help to you or not.:4-dontknow:

I'd say it's a bad bearing. I had a similar thing on my dakota... even down to the thud and click. I had to replace the whole hub cuz I ground it all down to dust when my tech opened it up.

Jack up the left front and check for play in the : wheel bearings , steering linkage etc...Let us know if you find something out of the norm.

Found out the bastards that broke into my truck tried to steal my wheels. Thankfully I have the lock. The man working on it didn't hear the sound at first. I called him crazy, took him for a ride, and sure enough he did. He was really nice and asked if it had been broken into recently. The bolts were loose and my wheel was wobbly. Also, he found out that my air shocks are shot. All the oil is gone, Lol. gonna be set back a good $240 soon.

oh now that is a piss off! Did they damage the wheels while trying to take them off?

98sst 07-29-2010 07:57 PM

THANKFULLY NO! I was in the lobby and he came out and told me to head back there. When he asked if my truck had been broken into recently I was thinking "FU*K! they messed up my rims!" But there is no damage thank GOD!

Well your lucky that driving on it that way didn't ruin the wheels . And what's with the shocks . You said air shocks are shot , no oil in them . I didn't know that air shocks were suppose to have oil in them .
