Click..Click..Click.. In front driverside wheel
 
(I think i posted in the wrong forum before.)


It's a 2004 Jeep Liberty 3.7L 4x4 Trail Rated

This started last night driving to work. At least that's when i noticed it.

I checked for rocks/screws/nails in the tire. But it's too cold to take the tire off and check the pads/caliper.

The clicking starts after about 15-20mph. It is definitely on the driver's side, front. Starts off low pitched and slow, accelerating in pitch and rhythm as i go faster. I cant hear if it clicks in a turn or not, because i can't take a turn going that fast..

Driving to college this morning I only topped out at ~45mph. I'm going to take the Interstate home and get it up to at least 65-75mph.

I just had both ball joints replaced this late summer, along with the rack. New rotors, and break pads all around. I believe the bearings were replaced too at the same time. Two new calipers (Front pass, Rear drivers).

Oh and for gigs, ill throw in that i had the entire head-gasket replaced too.

It was all covered under my 120thous warranty (Thank god)

I live in New York. I expect that things break sooner than more southern regions.

I'm bringing it in tomorrow for my mechanic to look at it. (they know me very well now) But it's killing me to not know what it is until then!

Ideas?

Can be several things. Can be a wheel bearing (but they where probably changed as you stated) , a drive shaft CV joint which is without grease (after the boot being cracked) or sometimes something more simple as a stone, or other road debris, stuck between brake disk and back plate (but that normally doesn´t make a clicking sound)

make sure all your lug nuts are tight! That would be my first guess!

CV join in the axle shaft.
