    Default Strange noise

    When im driving along the road with no music on I can hear a slight thumping sound coming from the driver side rear wheel. A guy I worked with heard it & thought it might be the wheel bearing that was needing fixed. Can anyone help?

    Wheel bearings are usually more of a droning noise. Maybe more suspension related? (just a guess).

    Thats the thing, I have changed to Koni shocks and I still get it. Its a repetitive noise. For example, the faster I go the more constant the noise is. if you know what I mean?

    Think of the noise you would get if you had, say a stone in your tyre. Its sort of like that but only a vey slight thumping sound. Cant think of a better way to explain it. So it constant, the faster I go, the more frquent the noise.

    I thought it might be an anti roll bar bush but it does not sound like it as it goes faster when you go faster, might sound a daft idea but you might have got a tyre that is out of round, what about putting the spare on and seeing if the noise is still there, that would then eliminate the tyre..
