Hi Guys, thanks for reading.
Very small issue but just having purchased our 300s I hear a very slight sound during suspension cycle. Could it be an upper shock bushing? could it be something loose in the dash or engine bay? I am not sure but the sound does interfere with normal listening level music. You can turn up the volume to overcome it but it's there, and I seem to think it could go away with effort.
Since this vehicle rides so quiet it is not out of reasonable to find it annoying.
While driving, especially over a series of small road bumps, it sounds like someone playing a bongo drum 2-3 blocks away. like you can barely hear it but he's drumming away. It has a slight softening to the tone, so it might sound like a "clarinet bongo" drum if that makes any sense.
I have it scheduled to be driven by the tech, however I thought it might be good to have you guys chime in for things to look for, or, better yet a way i can fix it myself. I'll do the shocks here if that's what it takes.
Talking to the service writer resulted in a suggestion of a "noise cancelling" system making the noise. How awesome would that be? lol
Hopefully I described my sound well enough to give you an idea. If it just makes you chuckle than that's great also.
Thanks for reading.
