Wheel thump

Recommended Posts

Defender 90 300Tdi 1996.

When driving along and you turn the wheel you get a rhythmic thumping sound. Sounds like a tyre thumping. It's all OK when the wheels are straight. It has happened on 3 different sets of wheels and tyres.

Checked so far :

No play in the wheel bearings - Tested by trying to rock between 6 and 12

No play in swivel hubs - checked by trying to rock between 3 and 9

Next to check is all bushes. An aquitance suggested it may be the cv joints. Anyone agree?
