My truck is making this horrendous sound whenever my wheels are turning. It’s like a low pitched grinding sound. I’m going to link a video of it so you can hear for yourself. I don’t know anything about cars but my assumption was that my calipers are gumming up and I have ceramic brake pads so that’s why it’s making that sound. I changed my brake pads 2-3 years ago and remember that my calipers were sticking. I also pull a big trailer so they get a heavy use.

  • @Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 it’s a 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD with a 6.0 engine. It is gas, I don’t know what type of trans it has. The noise is constant and I can only hear it when going by buildings or other parked cars and going 0-30 miles and hour because anything faster than that my truck blocks out the sound Apr 12, 2023 at 9:43
  • I can't discern what noise you might be talking about via the video. Does it go away or change pitch when you apply the brakes? Apr 12, 2023 at 11:40
