Hi, I have a 97 sable GS with a 3.0 OHV engine with 150k miles on it. About 2 weeks ago, i noticed a clicking/ rattling like noise coming from my front right tire. Or at least that's where it sounds like its coming from. I noticed it while going up a hill. It would instantly stop as soon as I let off the gas.

I got new hubs on the front end about a year and a half ago, and my boots have been leaking grease for some time now, so I thought it would be the cv joints. So i got new boots/axel/ cv joint assemblies put on the whole front end a few days ago.

Unfortunately I still notice the noise. It's only when going up hill and when you're giving it gas. I've checked all my oils, everything is fine, struts are about a year old. I also read something about spark plugs "pinging" i didn't see any sparks coming out.

Does anyone have any ideas what this could be. I thought getting new cv joints/boots would fix this, and it has not. It's been driving me nuts! Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated.
