Last week i heard a noise from front passenger wheel So i limed it home. Was a grinding noise that was every half turn of the wheel going in a straight line or turning. I figured it was a bad wheel bearing so I replaced the hub/ bolt/ axle nut. Noise was still there but not as bad. Brake shield not rubbing and i couldnt hear when car is jacked up and wheel is spun. I tightened the lugs to 100ft lbs and tried the copper lubricant where wheel meets brake. Replaced the brake rings and pads 3-4 months ago and everything was fine until now.

Any ideas or advice? If not easy fix ill be driving it to jotech this week. Luckily i live 10 mins from them- life savers

Thanks in advance

Are your wheelnuts the real product?

Been working with enshiu on my car for the past 2 days. This guy is a mad scientist. He knows his stuff about GT-Rs. We spent the past few days changing brakes, rotors and upgrading my  gotboost full intercooler piping. Enshiu will post pics of my car later.

COULD be the infamous GT-R wheel hub noise.

 

COULD be the wheel bearing.  But you said you replaced?  (Hub/bolt/axle-nut?)

 

How many miles on this beast?

30k. Lowered on coilovers. Replaced the hub/axle nut/4 bolts holding the hub. It was originally a grinding noise that would be present about wvwry half rotation. Now its better after changing wheel hub (new unit) its more of a clunking thats heard in the video. Any thing i can try or check? Its a cba so only one spring clip on front calipers- may order two more to throw on as i was planning to anyways- possibly pad movement?

Maybe pad clunking.  Install the extra clip and see.  It helps sometimes.  Sometimes it doesn't.

Put new brake retaining clip on and decided to clean inside of my wheels before remounting...noticed a loose bolt...then 6-7 more that were hand tight. Online gound BBS LM is 15-20lbs but just tightened them up with a wrench and socket.

Drove car at all speeds...next to a fence for echo at different speeds...had gf coast in parking lot as i walked listening. Nothing- no more noise so im assuming its the wheel hardware needs replacing. I had my wheels powdercoated then painted to match the car and original hardware was re-used so im going to order new BBS bolts.
