It annoyed me so much that I changed the mudflaps to a softer rubber one. Can you tell roughly what part of the car the noise is coming from?
And Tymes, its really hard for me to say where I think the sound is coming from. It seems like it may be towards the front, but I honestly don't know for sure. I haven't been able to mimic the sound anymore, which I suppose is probably good! But just in case, I have been actually lowering my speed over the dip. I've driven over it a few times in the last couple of days, but no noise anymore. Hmmm.. I guess for now its a mystery. I guess I'll just drive her until I hear something! (hopefully I won't). Thank you!!!(:
