We've replaced the "clunk" noise that was the result of our axle
tab not being welded to the frame with a new squeaking noise coming from the axle
at about the hub. This was our first weekend out since Scamp
welded the axle
to the frame. The clunking noise is gone but now we've picked up a low pitched squeaking noise. I had my wife walk back and forth while I went outside and listened. It appears to be coming from the area of the hubs on either side. I did notice that the Scamp
would rock just a little back and forth when she walked and that corresponded to the sound I was hearing. The wheels were chocked and the rear stabilizers were down. As an experiment, I added a couple of screw jack stands to the front but they didn't make any difference. We were on a mildly sloping site with the front lower than the back. It's possible that we had the stabilizers extended too far, taking more load off the wheels than necessary. That's the only thing I can think of that might have created this sound. Any thoughts as to what we're hearing?
