Question about 1995 Toyota Land Cruiser
My 95 toyota land cruiser started making some kind of clicking noise on front pasenger wheel from inside the hub when i turn the steering wheel to right or left.I was thinking maybe some kind of fluid goes in to the big metal part behind the tire,not the differ ,the other big circle metal part. thank you
Your front "ball & socket" joints are in dire need of lubrication. You need to do this:
Take the tires off, and look for a fill plug behind the hub, on the housing, above the ball & socket. Remove the plug, and fill it up with 80-90 gear oil. Replace the plug, do the other side.
What you have is a dry joint, and the clicking noise is coming from the u-joint (actually called a "Rzeppa" joint), inside the ball/socket/hub...a good lubrication will eliminate your condition. Hope this answers your question, please feel free to comment back with any other questions...And, thanks for choosing FixYa.

This has probably been resolved already but, first off the steering knuckle hub does not use gear oil, gear oil will leak out of the wipers and make a mess, those are filled with black lithium ep grease, and second the click you hear is the bur field shaft inside the knuckle housing, I have done many of those repairs, I work on those type vehicles.
