Q: Installed new bearing, hearing creaking noise

asked by on

Installed new front bearings, passenger side the axle slid out easily, driver side however required the use of a 3 arm puller, popped out the axle and installed the new bearing, torqued everything to spec, during test drive there was a creak noise, not a constant sound, more like if something were hitting. Jacked up the car to see if there was anything hitting and saw nothing. Re seated the brakes today just in case but still not the issue. Got a recording of the sound which can be heard here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOY4Quzjdv0 (Phone was on the floor recording which is why it's just black).
My car has an automatic transmission.
