    I just got a brake job done new brakes and drums on all drives and I’m getting a howling noise like those old school busses. It originally did it when I braked and now it’s making the noise when I’m going between like 30-40. It started making it right before I got the brakes replaced and it stopped for about a week after I got the new brakes and started right back. Do you think my brakes are out of adjustment or is there something else I should be looking for. Nothing looks out of order from my eye.
    Thanks guys!!

    Did they check hub bearings for play or pull hubs at all?

    I’m not sure. I just tried to call my mechanic. Didn’t get in touch. If it was hub bearings would it get louder when I apply brakes?
