2002 f150 wheel noise?

I have just started hearing a knock, sounds like it is in the passenger
side front wheel. The sound only occurs when hitting small bumps in the
road in the normal course of driving. When the brakes are applied, even
lightly, the sound goes away. I was thinking calipers or ball joints.
Any ideas?

Could be a loose shock or sway bar bushing. Check your lugs too. Loose ones
will make a noise before they fall off.

I'd be looking for a missing anti-rattle clip, or loose caliper mounting.
Shock and sway bars would not be affected by braking.

NOT TRUE
Depends on the speed.

I have a 98 F-150. I started noticing something like that when it was fairly
new. One or two years. I think they call it the idler arm, as I recall.
Anyway, there, on the 98, there is 2 grease fittings. I got out the grease
gun and shot grease into them. Stopped the noise. If I don't grease them
every 6000 miles, the noise starts again. Having said that, for safety
reasons, don't rule out what the previous commenters have said. Good Luck!!!
