Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 month ago.

You need to lift all 4 wheels off the ground. Turn off traction control. Have a helper drive the vehicle up to speed that issue occurs. Listen under vehicle with a mechanics stethoscope. This will pinpoint the problem.
