Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Bravada
Just had the tires rotated and balanced. Car still makes like a thumping noise when driving even on smoothe roads
Could be a broken belt in a tire but the shop that balanced the wheels should have seen that, Otherwise, it's likely that you have a bad hub bearing (front or rear...you need to listen and determine where the noise comes from) or a C/V joint going bad (usually a boot will be torn or split if that is the case) One note though...hub bearings are built very well and don't get loose 'till the very end. don't rely on shaking the tire to test them. If the noise is there, it's bad.
