First off I wanted to say I am a HUGE FAN of your videos, thanks for putting them out there. I am not a mechanic by any means, as a matter of fact I usually pay for all work being done. I recently purchased a lifelong dream car of mine, the Gen 2 Trans Am. I attached some photos. It’s an original survivor car with only 42,000 miles. It’s in amazing shape. I think part of the fun of owing a classic car is working on it yourself. I recently did some brakes and a tune up based on watching video’s scouring the internet and a shop manual. Job done. I am, however, having one issue that I cannot figure out for the life of me. When the car warms up, after driving it a while, on subtle left turns I get a humming sound. It’s hard to tell if it comes from the front or rear. I’ve had several people in the car with me, car collectors from some local car shows who work on their cars, several for years, tell me it’s coming from the REAR. They claim the limited slip differential is making the sound and since it only happens when warn, the oil thins out and I start to hear the noise, possibly the clutch not working properly when I make left turns. The reason for my email is, wondering if there is a more scientific way to diagnose such an issue.

Personally, I think it could also be a wheel bearing, so I ordered a new set of front a rear wheel bearings. I’m going to attempt to replace those myself. Is that a difficult job?

Thanks in advance!
