wind noise

Post by mickle »

Any suggestions on how to reduce wind noise when driving? I've realized the noise just makes long drives pretty tiring. Has anyone found a way to reduce the noise at highway speeds? Maybe new gaskets for the front doors or their windows? I have not really tried to figure out where most of it comes from. Or any other suggestions to reduce any driving noise in general?

What sort of wind noise are you getting? A high-pitch noise is an air leak somewhere. If you just mean general noise, the best thing might be to invest in "Dynamat"-type stuff, which is sound deadening material that sticks to the metal. It's expensive and heavy, and it's some level of work to install.
