Clicking or popping sound is coming from wheels

If your vehicle is making a clicking or popping sound from its wheels My Auto Shop can get it sorted with a Suspension Inspection.

How a Suspension Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

Our mechanic will raise your car and look underneath for any signs of damage or deterioration. They will then proceed to check for excessive tyre wear, damage to the wheel bearings, springs, shock absorbers or struts. After this they will check the CV joints, and inspect the suspension arms, bars and bushes for signs of damage.

They will then quote up any repairs or replacement parts if required.

When your vehicle is making a clicking or popping sound from its wheels its often as a result of a:

  • Damaged CV joint
  • Bad struts
  • Loose hubcaps
  • Loose drive belt or drive belt tensioner
  • Tyres are inflated or shaped irregularly

Popular services linked to a Suspension Inspection:

CV Joint Replacement

CV joints are far more prevalent nowadays than in older models, this is due to the popularity of front wheel drive in modern cars. They are an often serviced item due to wear and tear as well as being required to be in tip top shape for warrants of fitness.

Sway Bar Link Replacement

Your sway bar is what keeps your car from leaning too far when cornering. It does this by connecting your suspension to its opposite side. The sway bar link is what connects the sway bar to the suspension. It’s usually encased in bushes to prevent annoying squeaks and rattles.

Front Shock Absorber Replacement

When you go over a bump, pothole or just a bad bit of road, rather than bouncing around your car, the shock absorbers make sure you stay comfortable. They play a massive role in ensuring you make it around corners and come to a stop. They control the weight transfer of the car and are a critical part of the suspension.

Suspension Bushes Replacement

Driving down the road can be a very bumpy and uncomfortable endeavour. Suspension bushes mean that all the rattles, vibrations and bumps that are absorbed by the shock absorbers, don’t annoy you. They are also key in balancing the car and making sure it handles and stops exactly as it should.
