Question rattle

Hey i have a 94 lx, there is a rattle that sounds like it is coming from the front right around the tire. I ahve jacked the car up and tried to find the rattle but cant seem to. IT can only be heard while driving when the tire has sometime to freefall such as going down a hill. Does anyone know what thius problem could be?


Thanks.

You may also check the condition of the sway bar links. I'm replacing those this weekend on my 93 as they are nearly non exsistent now, and rattle like a can of marbles.

Does the sound go away if you lightly apply the brakes?

If so it's definately the caliper/pad.

Mine also went away with light braking, light turns in either direction, and climbing uneven surfaces, basically anything that would move the front tires up or down. The fix for me was the sway bar links. They weren't hard to replace, but they were dried out and rattling in their sockets. If you just pull the tire off, you can see them. If they are dried out like mine, you might give them a shot. I couldn't really reproduce the rattle just by grabbing them and trying to shake them, there was too much tension on them. But the rubber boots were gone and all the grease had dried up. Hope that will give you something else to look for!
