help with noise from rear wheels?
Posted 29 November 2012 - 07:41 PM
i'm used to a farily loud car as mine has an aftermarket header and exhaust. at interstate or highway speeds recently, i can hear some noise from the back wheels. it's fairly loud. my mind wants to make it into the sound you get from grooved pavement, but it's not that because i can hear normal tire on pavement sounds coming from the front wheels.
i figure it's one of three things, but i'm not a mechanic, hence i'd appreciate some input from the forum: wheel bearings? out of alignment? rear dif?
thanks for any input.

If you have all wheels off the ground, rotate each wheel with one hand and place your other hand on the spring coil. Any roughness in the bearing will transmit to the spring and be felt through your hand.
This can also point you to the wrong wheel, or not actually happen even if the wheel bearing is making a lot of noise... Look a few posts down for my 2000 outback
