    at first I thought it was tape or something stuck to tire or rock but I looked and it wasn't. kept running once I got out and sounded like a crackling noise near muffler but it's loud enough to hear while driving.

A couple things it could be.

1 : An axle joint clicking away (which would probably be under warranty anyways)
2 : A bearing can click like this when first starting to let go (some bearings don't last 5,000 miles when new due to flaws)
3 : Imperfection on the tire, causing a ticking like sound when a certain spot is hitting pavement.
4 : It could even be as simple as a brake bad vibrating which I've seen a few times!

What is causing clicking noise in front end?

Check the backside Of your tire. I drive an 89' f-150, and had a very similar noise. Turns out I had a rock jammed in my rotor and it was hitting the caliper every time the wheel made a rotation. I ultimately had to use a crowbar to pry the rock out. The other thing you could, and should, check is your brakes on that side. Check break pads, rotor condition, and confirm that your caliper is not worn out. I would also suggest checking your lockout hub. It could very well be that your lockout is worn out, and catching just a little bit, even though it is supposedly unlocked and disengaged. While your down there, check the joints of your front axle to check for any slop or play in them. Replace as needed.

2001 chevy suburban. I hear a humming noise from the engine. Engine ticks while idle for after a few minutes. Ticking goes away when I accelerate. There is a strong vibration when I accelerate in drive but...

Ticking sounds like a dry lifter, when was the last time you changed the oil and filter? Humming sounds like you need a tire rotation because of uneven tire wear.

Humming noise while moving

It might be wheel bearings. Also check all your tire pressures. You can also rotate the tires to see if that works.

Sounds like a clunking noise, like the sound you hear when you have a flat tire, Tire isnt flat. turning right on the wheel lessons the sound but stays the same turning left. noise seems to be getting...

its a wheel bearing. .will need to be inspected to determine the correct one. Also tires could also do this if the steel seperated internally. Rotate the suspected tire to see if it follows the tire.

Is the problem when you turn corners?If so get your c.v. joints checked.Without more detailed info and hearing the sound,this may be the place to start.Hope this helps

Ticking noise in front end. Just like the person of the 02 issue

My first thought is a rock hung in the tire but surely you have checked for that? If you only hear it as the tire turns and it get faster as the tire tire turns faster then it has to be either the tire, brakes, or wheel bearing. Remove the wheel and throughly inspect everything. Look for a rock or some other object stuck in the tire or the brake system. You may have to remove the pads to find it. Inspect the brake slide pins and lubricate them with brake grease. Clean all rust and corrosion from the brake components with a wire brush and brake cleaner.
