That sure sounds like your CV joint boot (Constant Velosity joint) That boot
seals grease into the CV joint, that clunking is likely the result of
excessive play in the CV joint cause it's been running dry for so long. That
is the pivot point of the front drive axle, that allows power transfer to
the front tires while still being able to turn corners in 4wd. I'd leave
that job to a shop cause I don't like independent front suspensions, but
that's just me.
| 83 S10 4x4.
| Started hearing a thunking sound at low speeds in the front drivers side
| Took a look, and the boot that is on the back of the tire is torn. I
| whatever needed grease in there is shot.
| Where I need the help is, that I have never worked on anything with 4
| drive. Don't have any friends that have either. Can someone give me a link
| to a site that would explain what parts are in the front axle of a 4x4?
| better would be something that explains how to take it apart as well.
| Don't know if it matters, but this truck does not have locking hubs.
