So the 87 brat is starting to make front end noise. It is a clicking, bumping noise from the front right. I first noticed the noise a few days ago. It happens when I turned. My first thought was CV joint, but I looked at the boots and they are not torn. After some more driving I realized that the sound was really only noticable when I was driving above 30mph and when I was just turned on gradual turns in the road. Slow turns around corners is quiet. No noise going straight at any speed. So I'm thinking maybe wheel bearings and not CV. What can I do to confirm this? Are wheel bearings a DIY job or do you need a press? Thanks for any advice. Keith
