What kind of sound are your hearing, ticking, clanking, clunking, chirping, etc?

First and foremost, thank you all for the help. My work schedule this week has kept me from having much time to look into this at all.

I'll try to record the sound tomorrow. It's audible from outside the car, as I can hear it reflecting from the curb as I drive along.

The tires have ~1800 miles on them, and looked perfect when pulled last weekend.

I'm thinking that pulling the speedo cable will at least eliminate one possibility, and I will have to chase this methodically down the list.

Thank you again, I appreciate all the help!!!

If you can hear it from outside the car and bouncing back in echo, this is one other symptom that indicates it's probably NOT the speedo cable.

Have you checked wheel bearings?

I think a video will help. Can you feel it or is it just a noise? When you had the wheels pulled did you rotate them? That might help determine if it is one of your tires/wheels.
