Front end noise

    I have a noise in the front end and not sure what it could be. It started off as a humming noise when I would hit dips in the road. I checked the tires and they were good. Now I have the humming noise plus when Im stopping I can hear a clicking type noise when coming to a stop. Im not sure if it is the u/joints or something in the front diff. U/joints were replace less than a year and 8k miles ago. Any Ideas?

    Thanks
    Nick

    Could be your hubs.......they are sealed one piece units, so you just cant replace the bearing. I have 66,000 miles on mine and I can tell they are starting to go.

    Thanks for the info, but I replaced both hubs in oct, could they be bad already?

    Nope, nothing when turning. Just when I slow down.

    I'd jack up the fron end and spin the tires by hand and listen. See if you can find out where its coming from.
