    I have a truck that is driving me nuts.It is making this whizzing noise while in 2wd-but only up to about 35 mph.Then it stops and sounds fine.I traced it to the front right wheel area and aint really sure what it is.This thing has the auto hubs on it also.I think the hubs trying to engage and then disengage /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif.Any ideas b 4 i get out the /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif ??

    Maybe you have a piece of straw/grass stuck in the rim hanging out /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Basscat-

    Occassionally, if you slow down and stop will it clunk, then go away? I had this same problem you mention with a '90 Burb a few years back-turned out to be exactly that-the auto hubs. Hated those things. Had a few local shops attempt to fix it, and a few even repaired then re-repaired under their warranty. I finally had them removed and installed manual hubs, problem was gone for good. I know this doesn't help much, but I think you're right about your problem. Sorry I don't have a better answer for you though-Best of Luck getting it fixed.

    my sub was doing the same thing too. I changed out the bearings and the noise went away.
