My Mustang has developed 2 distinct noises in the rear tires (they
started at about the same time - they may be related for all I know).
On the rear driver's side, if I hit the slightest bump I can hear a
loud clanking sound. Like a metal rod beating up and down. First
thing I thought was it was shocks, so I replaced both rear shocks.
Made no difference.
The second noise comes from the rear passenger's side tire. It doesn't
always do this, but about half the time when driving it, somewhere
between 15mph and 55mph it will make a loud "squeaking" noise. It's at
it's worst when starting out of from a complete stop, but will pretty
much do it all in that speed range. Sometimes it will quit at slower
speeds, but I've never had the noise persist past 60mph.
Any advice (other than just "take it to a mechanic". I like to learn
about stuff) is appreciated.
