    I’ve recently noticed a ticking noise that sounds like it’s coming front the front suspension. I hear it when slowing down from 10 to 1 mph. “Tick tick tick. Tick. Tick tick” I can only hear it with the drivers side window open and on quiet roads. It is faint, but definitely there. What is this?

    There are a few threads on this. I've noticed a noise like that a few times and it's always been a stone trapped in the tread of the tyre. Other people have had other causes.

    Mine has been in the shop three time now for that noise. I only hear it at low speed under 20. They are replacing the strut and sway bar now. Just waiting for parts
