Ok that is driving me nuts. I knew I had a bad rear bearing on my 2004 SS so I changed it but still had a little of that low "whump whump whump" sound. SO I figured "what the hell" and changed the other side seeing it has 100k on it too. Still have it. The rear tires (Hankook Ventus HRII's) look great but I'm wondering it it's one of them. It doesn't drive like one is out of balance. I'm pretty sure one has a patch could that do it? The rear struts don't feel bad either. Any suggestions.

i'd try swapping the wheels from the rear to the front and see if the noise changes then.

Run your hand on the inside edge of the tires. They could be cupped.

Lift the corner of the car up and turn the wheel by hand. It could just be a slightly warped rotor rubbing a slightly bent backing plate. Been there, done that lol.

Yup, cupped, so 100,000 time for struts? Bouncing='s chunking. The car had 80,000 on it when I got it so probably time.

Had a similar problem with a 2002 Regal - same frame and suspension as the Impala (have a 2004 Impala as well). I my case, the noise was related to a 'broken' tire. Apparently a family member hit some kind of edge on the road that broke the tire belts. Replaced the tires and the noise went away. Previous suggest to move the tires around to the back may be helpful.
