Clunk Noise in 4x4 Drivers side

Recommended Posts

Hi folks. I have a 2002 GU. Last time i went to the bush for a wheel my drivers side started making a clunk clunk clunk noise. It is only when engaged in 4WD. I have swapped my hubs over and the noise stays on that side. Swivel hub has also now started leaking a little oil. Would this be a bearing issue? Or will it be the CV Axle that i need to replace. If i am going to replace axle i will also replace all seals and bearings. Any help on this would be really appreciated.

I'd lock hubs manually first to check. If it is CV then in most cases the clunk would be there only on full steering left or right lock.

Personally I'd gut out auto hub lock clutch and be done with it if yours are auto locking hubs. That way it is on only when manual lock is engaged.

If you have access to 4 axle stands then raise the vehicle of the ground and "drive" it that way so you pin point the source of the noise.

Cheers

Mate i swapped hubs to opposite sides and locked them manually. Still made the bad clunk noise on the same side (Drivers side). To me it sounds and feels like a car that is front wheel drive with a crook CV. I might be able to get access to a hoist and drive it on it. Will call a mate tomorrow.
