"Ticking" sound at wheel
I am getting a ticking sound at my front right wheel when I turn to the left. (like the sound you got when you were a kid and you taped a card to the fork on your bike and the spokes hit the card as the wheel turned). I dont get this sound when the wheel is straight or turned to the right. Put it on the jack stand and rotated the wheel .... No visible signs of anything out of the ordinary. Is this a sign of a bad u joint? 2001 TJ.
I would take a close look at the u-joint. Leave the tires on the ground....use a pry bar to apply some pressure to the u-joint while carefully watching to see if you have any movement. If you find a bad one, replace them both...it's only a matter of time before the other goes too. After that, if you don't find anything, a close look at the unit bearing would be in order too.
ARB Locked & Loaded
I would say hub bearing, front hubs do that from lateral load. Buy the better hub when replacing them, the cheap ones do not last trust me I used to work at a parts store for extra cash and was a mechanic for many years. If it were a universal cross or cv it would growl while driving and vibrate severely......Jon
