Re: Growling Road Noise
This could be helpfull to other people. Though I have had the exact same thing. I know this is a thread from ages ago.
Had new tyres, new alloys fitted and a wheel alignment done.
Though it still had this growling noise, like I had 4wd tyres on board.
So far I have eliminated everything but the camber angles. Whereas I told the wheel align joint (BJ's), that it had a kit fitted and to adjust as necessary.
The noise is back but not as bad, but enough to hound me.
I have noticed the before adjustment was -1.78o on the left and -.5o on the right.
After, it was the same, the only thing that had changed was toe in/out.
I am now in belief that the left hand front tyre has a little too much negative camber causing the groan.
Worn ball joints/rubber bushes and the top 'a frame' mounts cause the camber to adjust.
So I will do a trial with shims again, to see if I can get it to stop the noise.
