Hey there, sorry for the delay.

Is your Navarra 2wd or 4wd?

Do you get any vibration at all? or is it just a droning noise at high speeds?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not much vibration
The droning noise is there even at lower speeds but very noticeable between 70 to 80 mph
Above 80 not so bad and 60 to 70 barely noticeable
Hope this helps
Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.
Thanks for the clarification.

It's highly likely then that the noise could be coming from the prop shaft, do you have 2wd or 4wd?

The reason I ask is because the 4wd models have front and rear shafts that spin all the time and the fronts are known to fail and cause noise more so then the rears, of course a 2wd will only have the rear.

Look for play at the u-joints for me and any black marks that look like grease around them.

let me know, thanks.

All joints are clean noise getting worse
Coming from front and now brake shudder
Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.
If the noise is continuing to get worse and your starting to get a shudder on braking then its likely that one of the front wheel bearings is bad. When they get real bad they can cause a vibration as well.
