: What size wheels and tyres are you running, my car used to do the same when I had 245 45 16 tyres on 7.5 inch rims because of the flex in the side wall when I went round bends quickly the tyres would rub on the inner arch but they were fine when going straight. It's just a thought but if you are running standard wheels and tyres that won't be the problem.

I don't mean to be short with you or ritter, but it isn't wheels rubbing. I just gave that ilistration because that is the only way to describe it. I know it isn't the wheels rubbing because the shound is almost CONSTANT. only in 1st and 2nd gears, it doesn't make any noise, other than that it is pretty bad.
oh also, under breaking whatever is wrong is making the car vibrate, any ideas?
