I have a '57 Chevy 3/4 ton truck. I took the brake drums off and
replaced the studs when I replaced the wheels with 98 Chevy 16" wheels. I
had to put two spacers in to keep the new wheels from rubbing the tie rod.
Now that I have it put back together, it is making a thumping noise when I
drive it. With each revolution of the wheel it thumps louder on the right
side as you go faster. I drove it only a short distance and then turned
around and parked it. Could it be the wheel bearing too tight or too loose?
Nothing seems to be rubbing.
