Road noise?

OK so here's the deal, just changed my front shocks, ball joints, rotors and pads to fix a separate problem. NOW...I'm getting this weird road noise that I can only describe as like whum whum whum whum The noise starts about 20 mph through about 60 and the noise is not constant it seems to speed up and slow down as the car does. What the heck could this be. I don't suspect wheel bearings cause it didn't make this noise before. I checked to make sure nothing is rubbing and can't find anything. I did rotate the tires when I did the suspension work. HELP!

Hmm did you bed-in your rotors/pads properly? When I replaced the pads on my old '05, it made a sound similar to what you're describing until I performed the bed-in procedure.

Rotate the tires back to how they were and see if the noise goes away.

I use to have tires that sounded like this. Do you have the exact same tires all around?

SOLUTION!!...So I took off the front 2 tires to check for obvious problems with the rotors/suspension and found nothing...but when I was putting the tires back on i noticed something...the front left tire had a weird bump pattern on the inboard side looked kinda like rolling hills all the way around. So I just got back with a new tire..installed it..test drove..and now it rides so quiet!! Like a dream!! The guy at pep boys said the tire bumps are from a camber problem and suggested they change the shocks and ball joints BUT to his dismay I informed him that I just changed them myself!! HA..Take that you corporate scum!! All-in-all, it was just the tire!

Glad you found the problem.

This is what I was talking about for the pads and rotors: http://www.tirerack.com/brakes/tech/....jsp?techid=85

So your tires were cupping then? That's caused by improper toe and not camber
