Snapping noise coming from wheel going over bump


Jul 20, 2020

Hi y'all.

I drove through some pretty deep water in yesterday's ridiculous rains probably 20-25mph at times. Afterwards, i got an extremely loud snapping noise that came from the drivers side rear wheel after going over a bump going up a hill. Today, same thing happened on a different road, but while i was accelerating quite hard and hit a bump. Driving overall has not been impaired, no warnings, braking is fine, but just wanted to know if anyone had an encounter like this before and if i should avoid driving until i see service or something. I might try to pull off the hub cover after work today to take a closer look but little to no confidence i'd be able to diagnose something like this myself.
