Sounds like a bad vacuum line to the IWE ( Integrated Wheel End ) or a problem with the IWE solenoid.
Operationally vacuum holds the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) out, and once vac is removed the spring engages the IWE.

Start by checking the vacuum line at the IWE for vacuum when the truck is in 2WD mode, and the engine is running. If you have low vacuum on one side, trace the vacuum lines back towards the IWE solenoid.

This is a block diagram of the IWE vacuum lines

Clicking noise goes away when braking


Look at the constant velocity joints on that side. When the rubber boot tears it lets road dirt in which fouls the grease and allows premature wear on the cv joint components.

There is a roar at the front driver side wheel we have had tires checked and that was not the problem . when you turn wheel to right the noise stops , if you go stright or turn left the noise remains.it...


You need to replace the wheel bearing. I would bet it is the right side. When you turn to the right the load of the vehicle is transferred to the left. Less load on the right side and the noise goes away. It is a classic sign of a bad wheel bearing.

I can give you further instructions on how to make the repair. Just need to no if its 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive.

Noise like wheelbearing up to 55mph jacked up car and spun wheels but can hear no noise


if noise goes away at 55 not bearings, check for tire cupping. Move tires front to rear or side to side and see if noise moves. You will not detect bearing noise when jacked up with no load on bearing.

Replaced front brake pads and also two studs Drivers side only, on 2001 nissan altima GLE . After driving about 20 to 30 miles the drivers side starts making a noise similar to a smog pump bearing noise ....


Well this is tricky. I have no idea what this could be except for the bearings. The reason I suspect this is because turning and braking will change the pressure you put on each wheel, so reducing or increasing pressure on that specific wheel could make a new noise.

In 2 wheel drive there is a whirring sound from the front end followed by a loud clunk where it feels as though you have run over a large rock or chunk of ice. Does not seem to occur in 4wd


if the whirring you describe sounds like an airplane and increases with speed that would be a wheelbearing and it may be loose to cause the clunk noise. when it is put in 4 wheel drive that can load the bearing up and noise goes away.

Clicking noise when I turn right on 4 wheel drive. now if I put the truck on 2 wheel drive its automatically goes to 4 wheel drive.


Have your right front Constant Velocity (c.v ) Driveshaft check out. Noise goes away on 2 wheel drive is there is no torq on the shaft like there is on 4 wheel drive. Bad c.v.shaft. Hope this was very helpful.

Noise in area of drivers side front wheel when driving, noise is greater at high speeds, goes away on left turns


Check tire wear first, and rotate if looks worn in one area, otherwise, Have your wheel bearing(s) inspected/replaced.
