Im getting a popping noise and clunking that gets louder as i accelerate. What could this be? Unit bearing? It kindof sounds like a rock is in my caliper. But i took off my tire and rotor and caliper and nothing was in it. It also goes away when i brake
Could be a u joint. I would expect decreased noise when coasting too though not just braking. They are really the only thing up there that reacts to acceleration I can think of.
Edit: I recant. Front don't have power going to them in 2wd. That would explain the change only when braking. The pressure is coming from the brakes slowing the case when braking. Backwards of the pressure of the fronts turning the disconnected driveshaft when driving OR accelerating. I think it's a u joint.
I had a clunking from accelerating from a dead stop although it did stop after it makes a few clinks then quite as I drove but it ended up being a shot balljoint I replaced them yesterday and it fixed my clunking
Dpg offroad ultimate kit- OME/JKS on 35's the rest is in my profile
Its doesnt make the noise accelerating from a stop. Im thinking it may be my front driveshaft cv joint?
It only takes 5 minutes to remove it. Won't hurt to pull it out then go for a drive and see if the noise goes away. If not then pull your rear and see if it goes away. Try that and if that doesn't make the noise go away then we can try to diagnose it farther.
I had a popping coming from the same spot but on the passenger side. I tried everything and it ended up being my cab mount was popping and i just tightened it up and no problem until it gets lose again. Probably not the problem but just a suggestion

Could it possibly be my steering gearbox? It has been leaking by the input shaft for about 6 months now. And i tightened all my control arm bolts, body mounts, and took out the rear driveshaft and the noise is still here
Make sure the pad is seated properly in the piston with out a bunch of play. The other pad is securely clipped in place. The caliper itself is tight. But don't over torque it. I'm going to if this ends up being the spring clip that holds the pad on the piston.
