So I'm driving today with all the windows down and the music off something I haven't done since Sept 2004 and you'd be surprise how much you hear from your car...
I noticed that everytime I went over bumps there was a "clunking metallic sound" from the under carriage. The best way to describe it is to liken it to 3 or 4 steel pipes in bag that is shaken up and you hear the pipes knocking about....
I'm wondering of this is my bearings, suspensions....but I don't know...I checked my undercarriage and everything is well connected...no lose exhaust pipes or metal stuff dragging...
I also noticed that my brakes were squealing but only when I slowed the car down at high speeds...There was no squeals at low speeds braking and no squeals when I stopped hard and mashed the brakes.
What is this about? Is it the Pads or the Calipers? I just got my brake fluids and oil serviced and changed on 4/27/2005!

smacking the exhaust does work but not always. usually this noise isnt the exhaust, it can be a whole lot of other things.
d. check the obvious, jack isnt loose, or anything inst banging around in the spare tire well.
