the clicking noises you are hearing are the relays powering up, that is normal. with somebody in truck try starting itw ith somebody under truck at the gas tank, take a rubberm allet and bang on the tank in the center of it while cranking, if it starts you need a fuel pump. make sure you have gas in tank the sending unit on the fuel pumps go bad all the time.
Suspension and steering noises also need to be checked out as soon as possible to be safe. When a suspension component, such as a tie rod end or a ball joint is badly worn, it can separate, sometimes even causing the vehicle to lose control. If you hear a knocking or other noise from the steering or suspension, have it checked out. Here are few examples of the typical suspension and steering noises. Of course, there could be a lot more problems in the suspension and steering that can cause various noises. Any noise should be properly diagnosed.
the tire might be rubbing on the strut assembly but i betting its just cold grease when it gets cold the grease gets thick and the rubber bushings in the suspension get stiff making squeaking noises i would take it to a oil changing place and have them grease the chassis that should help.
same thing thats wrong wth mine ur bushings r bad. replace ur upper and lower ball joint and dont no proper name 4 it but outer tie rod goes to bushing on wheel change it.thats what im trying to figure out how to change.good luck
BY THE SOUNDS OF IT ONE OF YOUR WHEEL BEARINGS HAS GONE BAD. WHAT I WOULD DO IS JACK UP THE FRONT END AND CHECK FOR PLAY IN THE WHEELS MOVE BACK AND FORTH TOP TO BOTTOM SIDE TO SIDE. CHANCES ARE YOU WILL FIND ONE OF THOSE WHEELS HAS ALOT OF PLAY IN IT. IF THAT IS THE CASE YOU WILL WANT TO REPLACE THE INNER AND OUTTER WHEEL BEARING AND THE WHEEL SEAL. TRY THAT GOOD LUCK AND HOPETHIS HELPED.
Remove battery, remove windshield washer bottle, remove air compressor and disconnect both air lines from the compressor dryer. Make sure compressor electrical wiring is plugged in, install battery, turn suspension switch to ON, turn ignition switch to the ON position, close all door and the compressor should come on and completely lower the whole truck. Once the truck is completely down, turn the ignition OFF, remove battery and connect both air lines. Install battery ensure electrical wiring is plugged in, turn ignition switch to ON, the compressor should come on and raise the vehicle to the correct ride height.
