2007 Chevy Impala 1LT
6 cyl Flex Fuel engine
New struts all 4 wheels
Wheel bearing replaced on one wheel
New tires all 4 wheels
Alignment all 4 wheels
Minor body repairs to pinch weld directly under drivers seat
All done due to hitting upraised section of paving on interstate at 70 mph, bottoming out car, and damaging the components that were replaced/repaired .
Current New Problem:
Since getting the car back have noticed a metal on metal noise from one of the wheels, can’t be sure which one, that definitely is related to the speed of wheel rotation. Best way I can describe the sound is a softer, more sibilant version of what railroad car wheels sound like when going around a curved section of track.
Since the sound is new since the repairs were done, I’m assuming there is a cause/affect connection.
I’m wondering if there is a stuck brake caliper? Any other ideas what it could be???
I have a Friday morning appointment with the mechanic shop that did the repair work.
