I might try a different shop. I have never heard of a broken Stud nut making any noise I hope they diagnosed a problem with the noise. Also in-experinced tire tech's over tighten lugs with their impact wrench and snap broken studs

Got a bad clunking noise coming from the front right wheel arch when driving. Also causing bad vibration through the steering wheel

Check your tire. Is there a big bump or hump the tire maybe damage. also see if the wheel has alot of play the bearing may be going bad. do you have a tire jack? The lugs could be loose.

2001 dakota drivers side rear wheel fell off driving down the street. studs are ruined as well as rim. how do i replace the studs. thanks for any assistance

I don't have a solution, but I thought it was really strange (coincidence?) that you reported this in June of 2010, and here it is September 2010 I just ran into the same problem. Same year truck (2001) and same tire (paasenger side rear). Only I heard a lot of noise coming from what I thought was a flat tire. So I had my brother drive the truck while I got in the bed of the truck and located the sorce of the noise. When he applied the brakes it looked as though the tire was going to come right off and I was like "Holy ****.....stop the truck!"

One lug was actually already broken but the tire was very loose on the hub. I then went to tighten the other lugs and 2 more snapped off (total of 3 broken) trying to tighten them. So the others sustained stress from all the movement which made them weaker. Right now I have 3 (maybe 4 can't remember now?) holding that tire on until I fix it.

Is this a defect in the 2001 Dodge Dakota? (I have a 2001 Dodge Dakota Quad cab with a 4.7 and about 95k miles). I was also hoping I woudn't have to take the who rear axle out. Once I get it up on the lift I'll be able to see it better.

When you turn the wheel there is faint squeaking ( soft high pitch)sound. Not a grinding sound. More of a rubbing sound, faint though.

if the noise is heard when you turn and not moving, then you may have some problem with ball joints or tire rod ends.
if the noise is heard when you are moving only then it could be the brake wear indicator start to touch the brake rotor

Metal noise when reversing front driver side tire chevy trailblazer 2006/

One common reason is a loose heat shield. Weld may have broken. You may be able to bend it enough to stop it rattling against whatever it's coming in contact with.

Tire thumping in all 4 wheel drive

Coming from the rear? I could see the noise coming from the front if your axels are bad. It seems weird cause the vehicle would make noises like that in normal driving because they dont change when you switch to 4 wd
