cammerunderpressure Posted July 1, 2008 Report Share Posted July 1, 2008 I am so excited! I solved my front end noise myself. And yes....I want a medal! Dealership said "all the GT500's do this". Well then, others might wat to try, if in fact theirs make front end noise. To recap, my front end has made a noise on every little tar line / bump, etc... at speeds under 40mpg. Dealership said it was loud tires just transmitting thru the front end. I pulled the strut brace off just to see how it might change. When I did, I noticed that one of the studs was touching the brace slot. The others were more centered, but one was actually making contact. I drove the car without the brace, and it made different noises, mostly I think because it is definitly looser without it. But the noise was very different from what I had been experiencing. I purchased some rubber grommets to isolate the studs from the brace slot, and some high density stuff like for the bottom of chairs to protect your floor for the metal to metal contact area under the brace to the strut tower. I put it all back together, and the noise is gone! My car is the way it should be and I couldn't be more excited. I can't believe that the little thing could make that much annoying noise and that the dealership gave me the brush off. The front end sounded like something was going to fall off, and now it is very quiet. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
