rear end noise

Took the 74 spider out of the winter garage. I notice what seems to be a slight vibration/ noise from what I think is the right rear side at road speed with a turn to the right. A turn back to the left, even a lane change ,makes it go away. Rear wheel bearing? Anything else? Thanks. Ken.

You might check for a brake dragging. Not sure what you had on 74s.

same issue

Mine was a wheel bearing. I put some extra grease on it and the noise was greatly reduced. I then replaced it and had no further noise.

Thanks for the advice. The book makes the rear wheel bearings a chore to deal with though.

The rear bearings are sealed so the grease that fixed your problem had to of fixed something else. I'd almost prefer any other task up to r & r engine/trans over replacing a rear wheel bearing.

The passenger seat is 15 miles an hour faster than the drivers seat.
