Hey All,
My 16 yukon xl denali has had a strange noise that seems to be coming from the front end.
Between 15 & 25 MPH there's is an almost humming/buffering noise on accel/deceleration. (Its the kind of noise you feel directly in your eardrum, hard to explain, but there is ZERO vibration)

I noticed it around the time of getting new tires mounted and balanced but I didnt think it would be a balance issue since its only at low speed. Highway speed the vehicle is fine.
I ruled out wheel bearings since the noise does not increase with speed.
Just did new brakes and front strur assemblies as well. Problem still persists.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Chris

Sounds like it could be a wheel bearing; whats the mileage on your truck?

Its got 80k. I thought about that but they seemed fine when I installed my drop spindles last weekend (noise occurred before suspension install).
And its only at the specific speed range, doesn't increase or continue with speed [emoji2369][emoji2369]
