That's my gut feeling and what I've always encountered as well. I'm anxiously awaiting to hear about the "new" parts and if there is a revised mount.

And to concur with most, the sound was always at low speeds for ours like a speed bump, road surface changes (like cracks), and stone driveways... 25 mph or less.
