2010 Camaro SS Rear End noise

Hello All,

I'm new to this forum. I have a 2010 SS/RS with auto transmission. Just about to hit 20K miles. I'm hearing a taat taat taat kind of noise in the right rear axle area, but only when driving hard into a left hand turn. Noise is not heard at any other time. The issue is exacerbated when there's more weight in the car (e.g. person in passenger and/or rear seat). Sounds like metal on metal. I've inspected underneath several times and have not found any sign of anything rubbing or making contact. Could this be a wheel bearing? I'm stumped in that it's only happening when banking hard into a left turn. I've read a number of posts talking about premature replacement of wheel bearings on these cars. I also found a posting regarding GM TSB # 09-04-95-001D, but symptoms are different. Any guidance much appreciated.

Thanks,
James

So the third time under the car and I found the problem. I have aftermarket wheels on the car, and each wheel has an outer and inner valve stem. The inner valve stem was contacting the emergency brake cable when the car was under load in the right rear. A simple zip tie did the trick!

Where did you have to go to find wheels with dual valves?

I have been around all kinds of equipment and vehicles in my many years but I have never seen inner and outer valve stems.
After doing a google search I guess it is a thing. Who knew?

The aftermarket wheels are Niche brand. Don't have a model number or any paperwork. They were purchased by the previous owner. I really like the wheels. Very attractive and durable, and exact size as the factory wheels.
