Default noise with ground control/koni

there is a loud ticking type sound coming from my front right side. it used to be on the front left but went away and seems to come back everytime i try and raise the car with a jack. the noise will go away when i apply brakes but will come back if i let off. it seems to get louder as i drive the car longer and gets really annoying.

anyone know what this is?

Does the ticking noise change rate with speed? Is it stil present while turning? Do you have to really brake or just push on the pedal a little bit?

Without more details I'd guess that it's your brake pads or maybe the clips that hold them in place. If it happens at low speeds you can have someone drive your car around a parking lot while you try to localize the noise from outside. You can also try putting the car on jackstands and turning the front tires.

Later,
Dustin

well i localized the noise to the front right wheel. I have only heard the noise until i put the new suspension in. at first it was in the front left, but then it went away and i didnt hear it until i raised the car again. i dont have to brake hard at all, just a little bit of pressure and it goes away. the ticking rate increases with speed but seems to go away at higher speeds. it seems like its less while turning. only reason i think that it is suspension is because i have only heard it since my new suspension and the sound moved from the left to right.

Possible brake pad movement in the caliper bracket?

Did you use the anti-rattle clip?

it's a sliver clip that's about an inch long. Mounts onto one of the pads.

Judging by what you described, I'm thinking something with the brakes.

How old are the pads, rotors? Is everything clearing? Are the brake lines contacting anything?

Work methodically and eliminate one part at a time.

This is a really good suggestion. Do you have SS brake lines? To install your suspension you would have had to mess with the brake lines.

The clips BlkTS02 is talking about are actually wear indicators. There are 2 anti squeal shims on the back of each pad though. Another culprit could be the spring clips that hold the pads in the brakcet while the claiper is off, I've seen them rub the rotor before.

This doesn't sound like a spring or strut, I'd check rotating components first.

just in case, you might want to retorque that wheel. your description matches exactly the condition of loose lug nuts.

well i put my new lug nuts on and that seemed to solve the problem

as i was taking the old ones off they were really loose so i guess the noise was loose lug nuts.
