Check the rear Sway Bar Links, if they are sloppy, rusted or damaged, replace them first.
Check rear Sway Bar Bushings, if bad, replace and retest.
Possible bad Shock Absorber or bushing?

Could be Transmission related. Have you checked the Fluid level?
Also have you changed anything recently like new tires? Its not uncommon for some tires like (Hankook for example) to make road noise?

Clanking Noise in rear end,when I start from a Dead stop,


I recommend an inspection of all universal joints or CV(constant volocity) joints, whichever apply on the vehicle! A quick inspection of the rear suspension at the same time should reveal the source of the unusual noises that you describe.
A reputable service shop will do the inspection for free or for a minimal fee.
Have a great day!

Best Tires for Suzuki XL7 (2007)


I live in Australia and Hankook have a good reputation here for longer wear and quiter ride than some others and they are well priced,road noise is an issue with some tires so I would get several opinions from tire places but you should get a similar response if you make sure you talk about road noise being an issue,as some tread patterns are designed for being quiet,bottom line Hankook Tires are fine

Road Noise

please rate me if you would
thank you

2001 Sebring LXI convertable. Loud rumbling noise that increases as accelerating increases. Sounds like a rumble strip on the highway. I changed the tires with no change in the noise.


Bad hub bearing. Drive the car on a straght EMPTY road .@30 mph or when noise is audible, **** the wheel left than right (similar to a race car warming. tires) and listen if there is a change in the sound if so its a front bearing if not it should be a rear bearing .Jack the rear of the vehicle up and spin the tire holding onto the strut. Feel and listen for a vibration or noise. This should pinpoint that elusive noise.Let me know Good hunting

Noise from rear axle


You most likely have a bad wheel bearing. Jack the car up to the extent that the rear wheel is of the ground pull in and out on the top of the tire if you feel any free free play or loosness do not drive the vehicle untill you get it fixed. Check both sides as it can be dificult to determine wich side the noise is comeing from.

Whirring noise from the front of car as you drive.


I would first rule out the possibility of a "rough" tire making the noise. You can move the two front tires to the rear of the vehicle and see if that changes the noise any. If it does, you might have a worn tire that needs replacing or a tire that has worn unevenly and should be rotated and balanced more often....

Good luck..
