Rattling noise when turning right?

Hi Guys,

I noticed since I replaced all my balljoints and tie rod ends etc my truck is making a rattling noise kinda like marbles hitting metal when I make a right hand turn. It happens a lot when I'm pulling into a parking spot or backing out of one too. Its never done this before...

Any ideas?

what's been described sounds like when i found out about my lugs where on loose and rattled off and they were bouncing inside the wheel and the lug cover. i highly doubt that's your issue, just an observation.

So the lugs on the rotor were loose and that caused that sound?

My rotors are still pretty new as I changed them recently but they could be comming loose I guess.

I think I read in another thread about somebody having this kind of problem and it could be your front wheel bearings (LF if it happens when you turn right, and vice-versa)

btw I'm having the same exact problem (when I turn left into parking spots). So I'm going to look into it as well.

So nobody else knows what this rattling noise is? It's only when I make right hand turns.

Sounds like wheel bearings to me. Mine did the same thing until I replaced those.
