View Full Version : Wheel spacers making clicking sound?

05-15-2016, 01:06 PM
A few days ago I installed 25mm wheel spacers on all 4 wheels of my Chevy HHR, and it seems that when im going slowly up or down an incline, or I turn slowly, I hear a small click coming from one or both of the front wheels. It sounds like its metal hitting metal, but I torqued the nuts to the correct setting, and installed everything as it said to in a few different videos I watched. If anyone has any ideas or wants more info, Id really appreciate it! Thanks!

I would double check the wheel and spacer tq and the spacers could exaggerate an existing wheel bearing issue or ball joint or tie rods.

Support the vehicle and remove the wheels, inspect the spacers just to make sure they are seated correctly/flush to the wheel hub. If the inspection has been deemed within specs as directed my the spacer’s manufacture settings.. the issue could be deeper and within the wheel baring.
