Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks

Open Question

2002 silverado 4 wheel drive 5.3ltr lt edition clicking and popping in driver side front axle. not hubs or wheel bearings. also pulls/jerks to the right occasionally possible things to check?

Clicks turning both directions and also going straight. sometimes makes clicking noise sometimes does not. always when turning. truck jerks to the left occasionally while driving at both low and high speeds, felt like wheel bearings went out so i loaded suspension and checked them by placing hands on top and bottom of tire and moving to check for any play. none. removed hubs to inspect visually. everything is bright and shiny shows no signs of any wear. bearings turn tightly (my experience with worn bearings is that they will spin more freely) axles are not broken, splines are perfect, no visible wear. is it possible that the 4wheel drive is engaging while driving? causing the one side engaging to jerk? is it possible for only one side to engage?

SOURCE: Front End noise and vibration

Check the U-joints and axle baerings. But its most likely because the truck is in four wheel drive.

SOURCE: 1991 F150 front axle not locking in.

Front hubs need to be taken off and inspected for damage,
Replace as necessary.

SOURCE: noise when in 4 x 4

Bad news... It sounds like you have a broken/stripped axle. I would start at the wheel and start disassembling from the outside in. It may just be a stripped spline in the spindle.

Changing front axle assembly or wheel hub or both? Either way, need torque specs for all bolts.


you've got a bad axle shaft in the front and possibly a bad bearing in the hub. 4/wheel drive makes the front axle actually work. Theys no real pressure on these shafts when in 2/wheel drive.

Hub pulling problems


The front wheel bearing on you Cavalier is replaced as a assembly that unbolts from the back. You should not need a puller, it should pull off after you have removed the bolts and the axle nut.

  1. Remove the tire and wheel center cap.
  2. Remove the drive axle nut.
  3. Raise and support the vehicle. Remove the tire and wheel. .
  4. Remove the brake rotor.
  5. Disengage the wheel drive shaft from the wheel hub and bearing. Place a brass drift against the outer end of the wheel drive shaft in order to protect the wheel drive shaft threads. Sharply strike the brass drift with the hammer. Do not attempt to remove the wheel drive shaft from the wheel hub and bearing at this time.
  6. Remove the wheel hub and bearing from the steering knuckle by removing the three bolts coming in from the back side of the knuckle.
Of course you may have to use a hammer to loosen the bearing from the knuckle.

Good Luck
