If it's a loud clicking from the front end, it may be your CV joint. Or a loose rim. Or a loose hubcap. Or a loose brake rotor.

How loud is it? Does it make the noise at any particular time or during a particular motion, ie: left turn, braking etc

i can hear it only at a slow roll maybe 10-15 mph, not very loud but i can just make out the sound with the window closed.

its it more of a snap sound? or is it a click click sound?

snap would be the axle splines, click click could be the brake pads shifting due to a broken fit kit. let me know

its a click click sound. i can hear it best when i'm slowing down to less than 5 mph, keeps getting faster till i just cant hear it anymore at higher speeds, due to wind, and other outside noises and plus because its hard to stick my head out the window past 15 mph.

i just got tein h techs last week.

Maybe a pebble stuck in your tire tread? It could happen. Check for a nail/screw head sticking out of the tire too.

Check your tires for nails. Sometimes if the head is big enough it will make a tapping noise. If you're lucky like I was, I had a similar noise, take the corrosponding wheel cover off check it and put it back on. I had almost the same problem as you only it can from my rear driver side tire. Once I took the wheel cover off and put it back on the noise has gone.

I had this problem!

I had this same exact problem...check your intake itself what my clickin ending up being was the intake pipe hittin right in front of the battery a little below it...if its mounted a little off it hits the little metal bar/support right above the stock fog light area...if it is that just remount the intake or what i did till i got a better intake setup was those ziptie things from the pipe to the battery and another to the space next to the headlights...if its not that then id check if you got a rock in your tire/rim maybe engine knocking from the wrong gas or sumthin maybe loose like the engine mounting or your suspension...

Personally, Id go to a brake shop and have them lift your box!!!

My CV joint is broken or out or whatever happens to it but its shot!!

My box is a LEMON!!!! I was hearing click click click at slow speeds, manual tranny... thought it was a nail NOPE thought it was brakes NOPE ....lift the box up higher....the axel on the drivers side is soooo badly worn its just hanging there. :( I've gotten THREE opinions and all say I have a lemon and there is no damage thats says I did it by hitting anything or running over something. :(

Im very sad and unhappy!!

ok today i was driving around in queens and the sound got really nasty went from no sound to clicking to clackety clack. turns out the hubcap was loose.

but as i as i was checking everything out theres a squeaking noise coming from the rear driver side suspension i think its the spring because when i get my weight on rear door sill and bounce it i can center the squeaking sound.

Check to make sure the spring is seated correctly in the mount. Sometimes it will squeak and creak if it's not fitted correctly. Glad to hear it was only a hub cap.

thanks for the helps guys
btw the springs had the rubber sleeving on the ends would that cause the squeaking noise?

now the squeaking noise has turned into a creaking noise kinda like the sound an old rusty swing makes. i can hear it even if gas it hard from a dead stop as the weight of the car is shifted to the back.
