I have a "whomp/whomp" type noise coming from my front driver side wheel. It can be heard starting at about 30mph and peaks in loudness at about 50mph.

Asked by Jun 12, 2012 at 07:50 PM about the 2004 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced the wheel bearing but it had no effect.  Have owned the vehicle for 3 years and the noise has been increasing gradually.  Anyone have an idea of what could be the cause of the noise and is it something that must be corrected?  Ralph

Same tires for those 3 years? If so i suspect it a tire defect, tread seperation or broken belt in the tire.

I agree with Tom. there are many things that can go wrong with tires. You may even have a bulge on the tire somewhere.

Try rotating the tires,and see if the sound moves,or goes away..Also,It wouldnt hurt,to replace the rotors-as a warped one,will make that sound,also.....

Almost forgot-If it a front wheel drive-Have your c v joints checked out..
