Default Rear end noise...

Ok. Read the thread about trouble with teh bearings and now Im paranoid.
Ive noticed lately that around 5-10 mph I hear a sound coming from the rear. its not too loud, but it sounds like my tire is flat. It never sounds this way at lower or higher speeds. My tire wear appears even. Now this is the same tire I got a flat on about 2 months ago. As u can see, I have aftermarket rims.
I test rode with my dad yesterday and he seems to think its the neon tubing tapping the bumper. From inside this seems like the same noise, but that doesnt make much sense to me.

As I told you before, I am cheap. Easy test would be to go with what your dad said. Put a piece of foam or something inbetween the neon and bumber. It the noise doesn't stop at least it was a cheap, easy and quick try.

Also, when I lowered my car the stiffer springs made the tube that comes from the gas filler to the fuel tank hit against the plastic wheel well liner in the back. It is in the pass side wheel well. I zip tied it down and no more sound

Ya gotta love PT Cruiser Links forums!! Just today starting hearing a thud which sounded like it was coming from the right rear, checked under my cruiser and did not see anything wrong.

Went straight to my computer, logged on and did a search of Cruiser Links forums and found the answer!

I too am in your debt.
