Default Knocking sound

Hey guys please read the whole thread before answering ring
So over the last week I have developed a knocking sound me and all my mates haven't been able to find out exactly where the sound is coming from only that it is from the drive line.

So when driving you can start to hear a noticeable knocking sound coming from the front.
When in neutral windows up the sound is very noticably
Revs make no difference to the frequency of the sound.
Neutral or clutch it doesn't make a difference to the sound
Only eliminatea the noise of the engine.
The faster you go the more frequent the sound is so it's is a drive line part.
Today when re greased the drive side cvs and new boots as there was a rip
And we replaced both brakes pads drivers and passangerss
No difference to the sound, will re pack the passenger side tonorrow.
There is no play in the drive shaft.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

if not check the front driveshaft, they are well known to flog them out.

Hey no it has auto hubs.
Can't seem to notice any play is there any specific ways of checking them?

You could drop the front driveshaft and take it for a drive and see if the noise is still there.

Could also be body mounts, from memory the fronts are the worst. Even though they look ok, they flog out and make noise.

Good luck figuring it out anyway...

aftermarket?
if not then i suspect what you actually mean is it has no lockable hubs fitted. i'm not aware of any that came with factory auto hubs.
some of the later D22's came out with no lockable hubs so the front axles and driveshaft turn all the time. which is probably why you ripped a cv boot.

some of the overseas d22's came with no lockable hubs and they chewed out the driveshaft so often nissan came out with a heavy duty drive shaft.

That's how they all come in Nz. Manual hubs are all after market.
Yeah most likely I really need to invest in manual hubs I think...
Ill try ripping that out tomorrow and see if it makes a difference, is there any tips or trick or pretty straight forward

Should only be 4 bolts either end and out she comes. Dunno how tight they will be, but with the hubs locked it won't free spin while you're undoing it at least... If you have to, you might need to move the car forward or back a bit to undo the top ones.

How are the wheel bearings? Jack up a wheel and give it a shake. It shouldn't move other than the steering itself.


How are the tyres? Is there a foreign object lodged in the tyre? How about the wheel balance, are there any weights on the rims, or are they missing?
