i figured out how to do it suprisengly easy the nut that holds the bearings on was real loose so ive re greased the bearings and tightened that nut to all it will go hopefully that will fix the issue

DON'T DRIVE THE CAR!!!!

Take the wheel off and undo that castle nut again (the one with the split pin in it), YOU NEED TO DO IT AT A CERTAIN TORQUE!!! NOT AS TIGHT AS f**k!!! otherwise you are going to f**k the bearings that are in the rotors!!!.

There will be other guys without a torque wrench on here that will be able to tell you how they did it because when I do it I have a torque wrench (a $500 dollar English made tool).

With a torque wrench you need to do it to a certain torque, back it off 1 or 2 turns and then do it to a different torque.

But for the sake of your bearings you will have major problems if you have tightened it as far as it will go.
