Can you explain how its the lower ball joints? I seriously thought i had issues with the braking system.
jack the car up, shake the wheel to feel for play. if you have play, figure out where its coming from. sometimes you may not be able to feel the play because its so small, but this is still a good, free way to test if there is any play in your suspension.

That is one way. But I did that and they were fine. But replacing them got rid of the noise.

of course. its more of an initial/broad test. depending on your findings, you go investigate a more specific area.

as stated in my post, you may not be able to feel it immediately (or really ever), but this test is easy, free, and can be done before you even take the wheel off.

Hello all,

As an update, I never had a chance to replace the bushings and ball points. However, this weekend I removed the "ABS Motor" fuse from the fuse box that's located by the battery. Once it was removed, I drove the car and that noise went away! I then put that fuse back, and then removed the "ABS SOL" fuse, and again the noise went away. I then put that fuse back (both fuses in the box), and drove the car and that noise returned!

I'm thinking this could be an ABS issue? Or maybe a defective ABS wheel sensor? I tried looking up wiring diagrams, but got nowhere as I really dont understand how the ABS system is wired.

Please advise.

Thank you all!

Thanks! I bought the car with the lip, but it's a TRD lip (according to the previous owner). The fitment is exact, no mods, just paint.

You should check the wheels if balanced properly if your getting violent vibration when coming to a stop. A four-wheel alignment would be good also.

I seriously think it's either the ABS module or ABS wheel sensors that's making that clicking noise. I think i should replace the wheel sensors first and see what happens, then the module.
