It just sounds like a very small knock with each rotation of the wheel/driveshaft. When I jack the car up and spin the wheels by hand it doesn't seem to make the noise.


I had a similar issue a while ago, when you jack the car up the suspension/driveshaft drops, try lifting the wheel up while it is jacked up and you might find it is the zip tie on the boots but it only hits when the wheel is at the normal driving height.


Check the 4 screws holding the rotor to the drive flange are tight. If loose you can get creaking noises.
I knock them up with an impact screwdriver.

One of the cable tie ends on the hub was definitely knocking so I swapped it with a smaller cable tie which seems to have gotten rid of that noise.

Doc I think you've hit the nail on the head. I pulled the drivers side wheel off first to give those screws a knock with the impact driver. They seemed tight enough and couldn't tell if I got them any tighter. The passenger side however was completely loose and I was able to wind them out all the way with my fingers!! So I lock tightened them and gave them a good nip with the impact driver. Just about to head up to Cudlee Creek so hopefully the noises are gone.
