Hey all,

When I turn the wheel, theres a dry socket sound coming from the front right tire. It doesn't squeak or anythiing, it just sounds like it needs some kind of lube or something. Anybody have any suggestions to what this might be?

Thanks

Possible front wheel bearings used or it might be the cv joints if you have a all wheel drive used someone else may know better but thats my two cents worth....
