Default Problem....

Alright, so on the way home from the gym today I started hearing this metal or metal noise that seems to be coming from the rear passenger wheel(well) but.... it only happens between 30-45 mph and when I'm not pressing the gas... i also went to back into my driveway and there was a weird shake, almost like i had a partially flat tire....

when i get home from work tonight (i didn't drive it back to work) im going to look around a little more, check the shock and etc. I read a few places online that it might be a U joint... but I'm not sure... i had never had this issue until tpday....

any ideas?

It may be a wheel or axle bearing, a hung up brake pad/shoe (you have rear drums, right?) or you have something hung up in your suspension (some road debris maybe?).

I'm thinking either I need new shoes (i do have drums) or debris, i hit a deer last night on the way to work lol. Hopefully its something fairly cheap and easy, otherwise there goes my new tires money!

ell, I put her up on jackstands today, took the tires off, started her up and put her in drive... there seems to be a ticking coming from the rear end. I also took the passanger drum on, and found a part of the brake just sitting there chillin on the axle.... so looks like I'm going to be getting new gears and brakes! lol

anyone have any gears for sale?
