SOURCE: Clunk noise from rear of truck

How about the U joint? If it's shot, you will hear a clunk when u start up. You probably already know, but jack up the back of the truck (both wheels off the ground) make sure u blocked front wheels front and back so it can't roll, use jack stands so u don't get squished, truck in neutral, e- brake off, climb under, grab driveshaft and twist back and forth to see if there is slop or play in the rear universal joint. Let me know what u find. Good Luck, and don't get squished (or squashed). countrycurt0

SOURCE: brake lights/rear turn signals

I had the same problem with my 1999 Yukon. The electric board needed to be replaced. Rust starts to build up and shorts out or blows the bulb. The dealership charged $73.60 for the part and I installed it myself (Saved $30).

Just changed brakes. Hear a clicking/thumping sound while driving. Is this the CVC joint going out? How to check?


Does the sound get worse when you turn the wheel sharply? Best way to check is to raise the front end and try moving the shaft(s) going to the front wheel. Should not have any play in it.

Light thumping sound when turning,could this be brakes


Could be universal joints, struts, or wheel bearings too! Get underneath your car, put your front end on Jack-Stands for safety, and grab hold of the tie-rods and check for movement up and down. If they seem tight, do the same with your front struts... it's movement your looking for. Spin the front wheels with the wheel covers off and listen for noise. They should spin freely. Brakes usually make a scraping sound... metal to metal. Any thumping when you brake hard... like a panic stop is normal. The ABS brakes are supposed to do this.

Brake thumping noise


first thing is to check that the wheel nuts were correctly installed and tightened after the brake job

Front end grinding noise


Several possibilities. Sound transmits through metal. The rear Emergency brakes will lose their lining and the linings fall into the rear brake drum. They will often pulverize the material and the piles of debris will shift when backing up and repeat the process going forward.
Rust on the front rotors. Constant battle. Can rust in 3 days enough to make noise. Sticking caliper or rubber brake hose is breaking down inside and blocking brake fluid return. Fluid has pressure to tighten caliper but relies on gravity/suction return. Rubber brake hoses internally can form flaps which act like 1 way gates.
Check other front axle for same parts, maybe 1/2 shaft is failing.

Grinding noise when backing up Jeep Liberty'06 only in the AM..


Have your rear brakes checked. It might be a brake wear indicator. Or your rear brakes are stuck on the brake drum.

After 20 miles rear brakes tighten up and makes thumping noise


It is probably the flexible rubber brake line that runs from the axle to the metal brake line on the frame. When these become old they don't allow the brake fluid pressure to reduce when the brake is released.
