    Does the noise increase / decrease depending on when you're going around a left or right hand bend?

    i dont think it does, the noise seems to get louder as i slow down from say 30 mph, but i did have the front wheels off, and there is a little play there, also does the center cap on the hub come off? so that i can try tightening up the driveshaft nut, as i dont seem to be able to get it off, cheers
