Default Knocking from front passenger tire.

Hello, I've been hearing a knock from the front passenger area that correlates with speed, as in it gets faster and louder as I driver faster. This has happened over the past few days and has progressively gotten worse as I continue to drive. When I accelerate in a straight line its not noticeable but as soon as I let off the gas or deaccelerate the knocking becomes pretty loud especially at freeway speeds, steering doesn't make it any worse though. I took the wheel off and checked the brake caliper and axle nut and everything seemed to be torqued correctly. All the cv boots are intact too. So is this basically a failing cv axel joint? Thanks for any help!

Inner CV joint. You need a new or rebuilt axle.

My guess would be what Counterfit said. They do occasionally break inside on the yoke or one of the tulips. Easy way to remove and replace the axle or just to check. Once you get it loose from the bearing, you'll be able to tell immediately if it's bad.

Default Help me... Please

I know this thread has been dead a long time but I'm going to bring it back because it is the only thing I've found that sounds like what I'm hearing on my 2006 WRX. I've had this problem for a while but it is also accompanied by a squeaking noise from the front passenger break (the same place the knocking is hear) and I was wondering if that could indicate that it is something else.
