Default Creaking Noise from Wheel

Hi guys,

I have an 07 JK.

I have just started noticing quite a loud creaking noise coming from the passenger side. I haven't been able to work out whether it is the front or rear yet.

The creaking noise seems to follow the rotation of the wheel and stops when I apply the breaks firmly.

I'm thinking that it may be worn ball joints. Has anyone had this noise before and had it diagnosed?

Cheers,

If it's following the rotation (is harmonic), it is not likely to be the ball joints. Probably check the caliper and brake pads first.

No it doesn't feel like one creak per rotation if that's what you mean but it is harmonic in the way that it is consistent

Getting any wobbles at 80+ kph?

Possibly a wheel bearing. Check if your hubs are really hot after a drive.

It might also be something as simple as something either caught in your pads or wheel sensor.

No, no wobbles at all. The only symptom I have noticed is the creaking itself.

Could be the u-joints as they rotate with the wheels as well. Can you have someone drive it slowly and you walk next to it to hear where it might be coming from ?

Sand and dirt do that sometimes. Had to get my rear disc machined

It's a long shot but have you had new rims fitted recently?

Had a similar noise turned out to be a stone wedged near the brake pad took 6 months and 3 garages to work it out. It was a very small stone that made noise after a few K's of driving
