as the car speeds up so does the noise. When you hit about 20 mph the noise does seem to go away or at least quiet down.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). Experts aren't employees / agents of Just Answer. We are independent service providers using the Site to sell their Expert knowledge to Customers. I strive to provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service, let me know what's needed from me so your pleased.

Does this noise also have a feeling with it?

Does it effect the steering or brakes?

Does swerving make it come and go?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I can feel it make the front wheels vibrate. doesn't effect steering or breaks. Haven't tried the swerving though.

Thanks, ***** ***** your have a front axle shaft CV joint failing as the first possible cause. Then a failing hub bearing as the second possible cause.

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.

Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 10 months ago.

I like to stay in contact with my customers that appear not pleased, still working on the concern, or have not rated yet. I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off. I am also sending an offer allowing me to upload diagrams or repair guides if that helps.

Thanks Chris
