Thoughts on Suspension Noise?
I'm having a heck of a time nailing down a presumed suspension noise. Anyone up for a game of name that noise?
For a few months now I have been dealing with a creaking noise from my front passenger side suspension. I figured it was just from the cold, but it has continued into warmer weather. It's a creaking/crunching noise, followed by what sounds like tire rubbing the fender liner. It only happens 2 places on my commute, leaving my driveway and leaving the lot at work. The only thing those spots have in common are deep gutters. I am unable to reproduce the noise over speed bumps, on the highway, down the road etc.
I did my brakes a week ago and poked around to no avail. I replaced my struts, springs, mounts, and sway links a year ago. Strut is clean/no oil, spring is intact, no noise while turning, sway links look good, and I didn't feel much play in the wheel while the car was jacked. My only thought at this point is it's the cab.
Anyone ever have a similar gremlin? Opinions?
