Are you hearing a thumping noise from your car or truck wheel? You can quickly figure out what is causing the noise if you watch this video! Andy shows you how to focus in on a front wheel noise to find out where it’s coming from, and what’s causing it! This time, the clunky thumping is coming from a loose tie rod. Tie rods have joints that can get loose as they wear out. Loose joints have play, which allows the front wheels to wander or wobble, and the metal parts of the loose joints will clunk when they move. This video shows you how to easily find and fix your thumping problem!
