Perhaps you are stretching or rubbing on a speed sensor wire. You need to see where it is rubbing maybe by duplicating it at slow speeds and having someone look to see where it is coming from. Maybe rubbing on the front coil spring?

If a dealer put it in you should be able to go back and tell them its rubbing and they could at least take a look at it.
