On my 2011 Toyota Camry, there was a womp womp sound coming from the rear, associated with some shaking of the car. It does it when you take off, slow down or cruise on the highway. First I put two new tires on at the back, since I thought I had a bad tire problem. It made it better for a little while, but then it came back.

It was time to change the brakes anyways, so I did because I suspected warped rotors. So I changed rotors and brakes today, it seemed like it did help a little bit not quite all the way.

What could this be?

Do you think the tires are messed up because of warped rotors?

Probably bad struts or shocks. The fact you changed the brakes and tires will eliminate that as a cause. If your shocks were completely empty and you would be be riding on your springs with no dampening effect. That would definitely cause such a sound


Warped rotors won't mess tires up. Check the following:

  • your wheels are properly balanced
  • your tires are inflated to the proper pressure
  • your 4-wheel alignment is good
  • your bumper cover is properly attached
  • your exhaust system is properly attached
  • nothing got stuck under the car (plastic bags)
  • inspect at your wheel cylinders, hubs and bearings at the back, they may be worn or damaged
