Weird Sound; Exhaust, Tires...I have no idea.
Alright, so I'm having some weird sound coming from my truck. It's basically a loud "whomping" sound. It is louder and faster when I am on the highway, I'm assuming due to higher speed. My buddy told me it was the tires being worn down, but the sound dies down when I take my foot off the gas pedal. When I accelerate, it's not as apparent either. And when I apply the brakes, it's not there. Only when I am at a constant speed with pressure on the pedal, it's loud and repeating, whomp-whomp-whomp-etc. I'm thinking it might be the exhaust. I have a tiny muffler and the exhaust spits out in front of my right-rear tire(I've heard that be called a "side-dump), which is where it feels like the sound is coming from. Not necessarily "sounds" like it's coming from, because it's so loud it could be from anywhere.
Does anyone have any advice, or have any experience with this? Any help is appreciated, I'm more or less at a loss.
EDIT: I looked into it further, and found that it might be the caliper anchor plate bolts or lugs are loose. Anyone have any similar experiences?
