Default I have a 96 acura tl that makes whomping sound.?

I hear the noise pretty loud going 30 to 40 mph but then it tapers off or is harder to hear that faster I go. But when I stop the noise stops. It does it turning or going straight. Please someone help me

Bad wheel bearings or warped rotors

I'd say tires...rotors/bad bearings will squeal and also shake the car...the CV shaft/joint will click when turning...(will also shake the steering wheel)I'm betting you still have the OEM's on...get some new tires and have them balanced well.I bet the whomping sound stops...(like it does when YOU stop)

Usually that type of noise is either wheel bearings or tires. Both can sound similar, first check your tires to see if their cupped (unevenly worn, kind of wavy, especially on the inside section of the tread). If they are not, then it is probably a wheel bearing. See if you can tilt each wheel up and down when the car is jacked up so see if a wheel bearing is loose. I don't think it is a CV Shaft, usually a CV shaft will make a clunking only when turning. My guess is tires though, maybe if you can't tell if the tires a cupped, try rotating the tires and see if the noise changes at all.

The whomping sound could be due bad tires as tires get worn they sometimes makes sounds as they're rotationing
