Question Road noise 98 Camry

Just replace a control arm and CV joint on the driver side. now there a Tire/road noise that wasn't there before. The tires are new less then 90 days ago and the noise is only when your are moving the more speed the louder the noise. it like a loud humming sound you can really hear it good with the windows up and AC on. I am planing on having a alignment done but not done so yet as far as I see with an alignment you can only adjust the toe in so not sure why that would be causing my noise but could the wheel bearing be going bad?

Re: Road noise 98 Camry

Post back after you get the alignment. A misaligned tire can generate scrub, which produces noise.

Also, ALL alignment parameters can be adjusted, but it might take a camber plate or an eccentric bolt (extra cost!) - and a good alignment tech will tell you that up front.

Get the printouts. Those will tell you what was wrong and if they fixed it.

In my experience, to get good tire wear, the alignment has to be within the inner half of the tolerance. Thwe target value is OK. Just the deviation from the target!!

EXCEPT: My experience also says that any camber over 1 frequently leads to tire wear issues. Yes, I think the spec is wrong - at least with regard to tire wear. You may lose some handling dialing the camber out, but you get better tire wear as a result.
