Well, I just got my blazer back, I'm Active duty in Military, and i've had my car home, and not been able to work on it or maintain it for 8months. Durning those 8 months, I've had a few older, mature drivers drive it, but who knows what neglect has happend. But anyways...

When I drive slowly, (under 25-30mph) I hear a slight whinning, seems to be coming fromt he front end...It doesn't doesnt fluxiuate with engine rpm, just speed...its the same sound all the time, even if i'm turning, backing up, or stright line. I cant seem to hear it after 45-50mph, maybe because its just such a high pitch whine by then i cant hear it or my exhaust is covering up the sound.

I previously gone muddin a weekend before i noticed this noise. I did nothing to crazy, I went through a small mud bog, but nothing to deep or thick. I also did some trail riding, but then again, these trails are nothing, i did no articulation and no highspeed jumps, and no ground crashes or anything of that sort...

Another small problem is when I go over 50mph, a fierce shaking of the entire front end occurs. Feels like something is off balance or something of that nature. It shakes for a few seconds, then stops, then shakes some more, then stops..but this is all at the 50mph-75mph range...I dont feel a whole lot of shakin below 45mph..

Soooo do you think this is all assocatied with each other? how can I stop the whinning and she shaking...Do you think its just real bad mud buildup? Maybe mud in my calipers? I am up for any and all suggestions!

Thank you!
