85 k5 Chevy Blazer 4 wheel drive leaking oil by the Tires how do you replace the seals


If you are not an experienced mechanic, I would take it to a reputable shop. You have to completely dis-assemble the front steering knuckle to get to the seals, it is usually a good idea to replace your front axle u-joints while you are in there, and check on your upper and lower ball joints, as all of this has to come apart to get to your axle seals.

What noise? And year and make of car?
A clicking noise on turns is a worn CV joint on the axle shafts. A grinding noise at one of the wheels could be a wheel bearing. Worn brake pads may cause squealing, screeching other high pitched noise.

Front tires are leanin in


After double checking the design, it makes no difference if your truck is 2 or 4 wheel drive. There is an eccentric bushing located between the upper ball joint and the top section of the front axle. You can adjust the camber [inward to outward tilt] of each wheel by removing the upper ball joint from the axle and rotating that bushing. Make sure there is no play in either of the ball joints on each wheel. Replace any worn ball joint, before adjusting the eccentric bushing. The link below shows what an eccentric bushing looks like, although the linked item is not specifically for your truck. See

http://automotivetoolsusa.com/moog-k8979-caster-camber-bushing

If you can not adjust the camber [tilt] to be within specifications, you will need special equipment to heat and bend the front axle to achieve proper camber. This sort of thing is best done by a truck alignment shop.

Ball joint issues


wheel alignment,make sure you have it done at alignment shop, not a regular mechanic shop,also some newer vehicles have shims like adaptors,make sure they're on properly.otherways the nut is tight but the ball joint is still loose.

Clicking noise from drivers side front also big vibration over 30 mph. It is a 1999 GMC Jimmy 4 wheel drive. When you slow down it clicks.


you most likely have a bad axle. i would check the axle boots to see if they are ripped or if there is any play in them. also the vibration could be comming from the axle or a bad tie rod or ball joint

Loud clicking noise when steering wheel is turned in either direction past center. Same noise when travelling over rough road or bumps.


The loud clicking noise you described is most likely a worn CV joint in the axle. The noise on rough roads is likely a ball joint or upper control arm ( there are 4 of them on your passat ) .
I would take your car to an alignment shop for a thorough inspection. Don't take it to a VW dealership , they will overcharge you for the work. They quoted me 3 hours labour to replace an upper control arm ball joint. I did it my self in the driveway in 25 minutes.

"Humming" or "bearing" type noise in left front at highway speeds


That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.

Transmission or rearend


IF its whining noise then first check the transmission fluid in the rear axle if its 4X4 truck ,if its not 4X4 then check the brakes or the wheel is making contact to any metal part ....

Good luck....
