Ball Dropping Noise From Front
I've got a weird sounding noise coming from underneath the front center of the car going towards the right side. I can hear it only when accelerating from a stop. It sounds as if there is a ball bouncing and falls down and then it stops. But then when I go to accelerate again it repeats again.
I have inspected both the left and right control arms, ball joints, and tie rod ends. No play whatsoever. The only thing that looks like it may need replacing in the near future is the end link. There is a little bit of rust around that. But besides that I am stumped as to what this noise is.
I even jacked up the car and had a friend and I take turns looking under the car but the noise would not duplicate itself while jacked up.
I've noticed the noise is a lot louder during hotter temperatures.
