Grinding/clicking noise on drivers wheel when coming to a stop....

hey guys....this all started tonight...when i apply the brakes when coming to a stop a grinding/clicking noise starts and gets louder as the truck comes to a complete stop....could this be a u-joint on the drive shaft?

As well the 4x4 auto-lock hub doesnt turn on the drivers side but does on the passenger side....could this be causing the problem?

Thanks guys for any help

Re: Grinding/clicking noise on drivers wheel when coming to a stop....

Is it a very regular clicking sound at wheel speed (only heard with the window down)? My anti-rattle V spring popped out and was "clicking" at wheel speed on the vents in the disc. Replacing the clips in the pads solved that problem.

Re: Grinding/clicking noise on drivers wheel when coming to a stop....

actually no....this is a sound heard with the windows up. It only makes this noise when im coming to a stop, and then becomes louder when completly stopping....It has something to do with the drive line...i might have to get it looked at tomorrow

Re: Grinding/clicking noise on drivers wheel when coming to a stop....

it could bee your brake rotor is cracked thats what hapened to my brothers 99 f350 braking at 50 mph you woudent notice but when you slow down to 10 and 5 mph it sounded and felt real bad.
When it blew apart it ruined the calipers and bent some stuff it was a pain in the [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Re: Grinding/clicking noise on drivers wheel when coming to a stop....

acl

It surely cant be this but when I get mine in wet dirt that will pick up rocks on the wheels in fromt it invaribly gets rocks stuck somewhere in the brakes. I have never had to get in there and look.

It seems that if i back up a few times and get on the brakes pretty hard it takes the stuff out the other direction.

Just in case you have been on a muddy lane before the noise started [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img]

Re: Grinding/clicking noise on drivers wheel when coming to a stop....

ACL my truck had the same symptoms on the left front axle a few moths ago...I kept on driving for 2 or 3 more days 'till the grinding got sooo bad that I didn't dare to go anywhere anymore besides to the dealer - about $1,500.00 later it was fixed - they changed the whole chebang inside the hub and the inside of the axle, something in it was broken and it didn't disconnect anymore (from 4WD). @ least that's how I remember it.

Good luck with yours, hope it's not the same!

Re: Grinding/clicking noise on drivers wheel when coming to a stop....

I had a grinding when I applied the brakes. Thought I had a worn brake pad on the front. Change the fronts to Powerslot rotors and hawk pads. Found the drivers caliper pin corroded an sticking. While bleeding the brakes I found the right rear rotor bad and that was causing my grinding. I would check the brakes first, all of them, because even those the grinding sounded like it was coming from the from, it was actually coming from the rear.

Re: Grinding/clicking noise on drivers wheel when coming to a stop....

Alright guys...i appreciate all the replys...

This is my up-to-date info on this issue.

It rained for most of the day today and i found that the grinding/clicking noise wasnt as loud. The more i drove it the less i heard it. Then i pulled into a parking lot gave it a few hard stops in reverse and the same in forward, pulled out on the street and i havent heard it since. I know i do need rear brake pads because i did the front rotors and pads when i replaced the ball joints. But what got me going was the drivers side auto lock hub...it doesnt wanna turn so i took a wooden dowel and gave it a few hits with a hammer and i ended up breaking the knob handle grip so now the white plastic plate in-behind this knob is visable, which may cause dirt to add up and create a problem....that was a mistake i learned off of. :depress:

Thanks powerstrokers...
