hi Guys,

Got a problem with the 347, not long ago I started to notice a whooshing noise while driving. (Like whoosh whoosh whoosh whoosh) More predominant between 60 - 90kph and frequency is too slow to be diff main shaft bearing so ya reckon it's the rear wheel bearings? Did the fronts when I did the rotors about 2000km ago. The diff has done 240,000km and I dunno when the rears bearings were done last. Sound about right?

Cheers,
Steve

Like what he said^^^^^^^^^^^^^^......If your driving along, apply the brakes, and if the noise gets louder...tyres. If noise stays the same, not tyres.
