Strange sound.....

On my 2010 f-250 4X4 I have an occasional sound coming from the front drivers side wheel. It all started with what sounded like a rock stuck between the brake pad and the rotor, I would get out and look and could see nothing out of the ordinary.

It has now turned into a rattling, kind of tinny sound, almost like the shield is loose, but everything is tight and seems to be as it should.

I can hear it when the truck is rolling and I am NOT applying the brakes. Most of the time when I hit a small bump in the road, like an uneven road surface, like on a cobblestone street. When I apply the brakes the noise goes away.

I have never heard the sound while off road.

It also does not seem to do it while at highway speeds.

Anyway, this has me puzzled. Any body have any ideas where to look next?

Thanks in advance for any advise!

No, not any worse when turning to the right. Or the left for that matter. I have taken the wheels off and checked everything out and I cleaned it all real well and it kept on doing the the same noise for about a week after I did all that.

The odd thing is the last 2 days, not a sound. It is like the truck just self corrected itself. Either that or the whole from end is about to fall out from under the truck!

Hmmm weird well for future ref. There are zerk fittings on the inside of your wheel if u turn your tires to the right or left u should see them on the 4x4 knuckle near your brakes you might have to spin them by hand to locate the fittings they might be starting to dry out

Could be a wheel weight working its way loose? Do you only hear the noise at higher speeds? If so it is probably a wheel weight.

So, have you found anything out about it, also to it could be your hub going out but, usally when they do they are louder when you turn to the opposite side that the noise is coming from.

I was getting the same noise. My rotors look pretty rusty. I assumed it was rust coming loose and getting stuck somewhere. I blew out a bunch of crap with some compressed air. It's not as bad now as it was.

Well the sOund has done it in the last couple of weeks. All has been normal. About a week before the noise stopped I had taken the wheels off and cleaned all the dirt and debris out from around the wheels, and shocks and such.

I am assuming it was a small rock or something stuck between the backing plate and the brake assembly. There is a place on top of the caliper that really holds a lot of trash and after I cleaned it it seemed to do better, but I was still able to hear it. It then stopped a few days later and I have not heard it since.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

I have the same problem with my truck. I think it is the rust on the rotors. My mechanic is looking at it today. Says probably the rust.
