Well one day I was going off the off ramp and I hit the rumble strips on the side of the highway. You know those little cuts in the ground that make the loud noise when your drive over them! The next day I was getting off the highway and I got a very similar noise except this time I swear I didn't run them over! Yesterday I was able to repeat the noise by taking hard right turns! Left turns, straight, and soft right's no noise though? The noise is definately coming from the rear! I'm not positive which side but it seems to be from the passenger. I would think with hard right turns it would be the driver side though?
I have my theories as to what it is but I will let some of you chime in first. Here is a little background info, the car is a 99 with 186k miles. No rear suspension parts have been changed! Not that there is much on a p11! I'm riding on falken ziex 512's that are well past their prime! They were over inflated to 35psi in early winter and not checked since. They have to have 70-80k miles on them and the tread is very choppy on the inside. I mean I drove over wet ground and every other section of tread was wet?!? The others were bone dry? The car has had one allignment a few years ago, and two sets of tires ago! That was back when the car was well under 100k! Can you even allign the rears in a p11? So tell me your thought please!
