hi there all i was wondering if anyone has had or would know what is causing a whinning sound and a viabration from the rear of my vq states man?? i have put new rims on calias internationalls and wheel spacer hubs that act as another hub with studs that bolt on to original hubs, as they were rubbing on the inner sway arms.. and its got me stuffed as to why im getting viabration when i hit about 80 kph but the weird thing is when i put it into the over drive gear it stops??? so if some1 could shed some light on this one i would be very gratefull:bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

the only advise i can offer is for the sake of yourself and every other innocent road user, get rid of the spacers. they are not legal, they are dangerous for everyday road use.

could be a few things. tailshaft, gearbox, wheel bearing, or diff. because of the whining though i'd say probably diff or gearbox.

Sorry i thought i read "spacers on the hub" which would be illegal. i guess thats what makes the english language so beautiful yet so difficult.
