Weird noise from rear end, thunk thunk thunk
Posted 20 February 2008 - 12:54 AM
It only does it after I have been driving for a few miles. When it's cold there is no noise. Its coming from the passenger rear. It sounds like a thunk thunk thunk, while driving straight, as soon as I turn the noise changes to a grinding sound. When I put it into 4wd the noise stops. It's louder while decerating.
I have pulled the wheel off and the drum looked at the brakes... everything looks fine.
Could this be an axle or wheel bearing?
It's on a 88 GL w/ 235k

could be a bone dry bearing. check them cuz i had the same exact sound and it was a dry bearing. the solution to that is simply repack and ur good to go.
That's what I think I had one go out in eastern Wa and drove all the way home with a thump thump thump. sounds just like what I had going on.

Just a repack or should I replace the bearing?
