front wheel noise.
2000 limited. So I'm getting noise from both my front wheels or at least I think it's coming from there. I can hear the sound echo off things as I pass them. The sound is like a fast cha cha cha... I used to get a clicking sound, but now it is the new sound.
Increasing/decreasing speeds does nothing the noise is constant. Most of the time while decelerating from freeway speeds without breaking I get a woo sound.
From my searching, if the wheel bearing is bad I should get a kind of grinding noise from 0-30mph and it should stop after that. So how is it that I get a 'wooing' sound when coasting to slow down? When I give it gas it goes away.
The cv-joint on the axle shaft is bad when it starts clicking as I was told by Ryan. Perhaps I let the axle shaft go for too long and it is making the sound stated even though the cv boots are not torn?
Maybe brake pads dragging?
I don't know of any other specifics. So please ask any questions that would help me in finding this problem. Any help is greatly appreciated.
