for the past 3 or 4 months my 01 3.4 base impala has been making a literally deafening hum above 30mph 30-45 is unbearable then its like a frequency that gets higher. (almost like 30-45 is the natural frequency of the tire?)
Anyways i got new falken tires 7000 miles on them
Rotated and balanced - it fixed the pulling to the right
The other day i payed $700 for 2 new front outer tie rods bearings and seals thinking it would fix it but it didnt.
My mom is convinced its the engine but i can let off the gas even coast down from 70- 30 and it still be the same as accelerating LOUD
could it be axels? or should i try to get tires rotated and balanced again so they wear right with the new bearings
I NEED HELP i would like to keep more money in my pocket
Both front end tie rods were trashed and should have been replaced long ago.
My car also had that noise and vibration.. well it would get really bad turning right and quiet going left until i straigthened out. As it would turn out one wheel bearing was loose and had to be replaced and my other one the front left was destroyed as well. So bad actually it was about to start pushing the axle up into the transmission and make me desert the car all in all.. about 861$ total all said and done i belive with friends and family discount at firestone. Im just happy its all fixed and finally after months .. just relaxing quiet drives again
