My original thought was wheel bearings and after some internet sleuthing, I can't figure it out.
1989 Rover Classic
I am feeling some grinding in my rear axle.
There is some clunks every now and then with the noise.
I had my girlfriend slowly drive as I walked next to it and the only way I can describe the noise is like this (hard to describe but..)
rubbing wet rubber gloves together makes a very distinct tight rubber sound. I am having a hard time describing it. This is at very slow speed.
Driving it kinda feels like the brake pads have 0% left on the pads.
I put the rear up on stands. Turned the wheels and they were smooth. I got very confused. There didn't seem to be any play in the tires. When I did put some downward pressure on the wheel, I could feel a bit of grinding.
Sound familiar to anyone? I want to take apart and inspect, but kinda want to have the replacement parts ready to just swap in.
