Everytime when I'm driving on the freeway and I pass 70mph and if I release the gas pedal to slow down a little, the right rear side of my car makes this weird grinding noise that I can't really discribe. Anyone have the same problem or any ideas on the problem? Thanks for any help.

if you ever hear a grinding think 2 things:

1- cv boot = axle problems (this applies to front)
2- caliper seizure...i heard a grinding when mine seized while on the highway. however it sounded like it was coming from everywhere. A test of spinning the wheel while the car's on a jack will give you the answer.

Does the car shake or act different also, or does it just make the noise?

The car drives perfectly fine, that's why it's so hard for me to know what's wrong.

are you sure its coming from the right rear? cause if its right below your car it could be the heat shield. However if a screw or anything metal falls under the carpet in your trunk and gets by the spare tire, it will eventually start rattling around and make a loud annoying sound.

Could it be my exhaust rubbing against my bumper? Because if I let go of the gas after 70mph, my exhaust makes a loud low noise. If it is my exhaust, does anyone know how I can fix this?

u sure its a grinding sound? could it be more of a rattling sound? if so its most likely that your exaust mount is broke.

well i had a grinding noise problem when i let go of the gas. my problem was that since my car was lowered it wore out the ball bearings in my axles. so i had to replace that and my front axles. i dont know if this might be the same reason. go check it out to a well known mechanic because some mechanics will think its something else and fix that and waste your money. i first replaced my brakes because some mechanic said it was my brakes, then i replaced my struts (shocks) and wasted money on that. then finally fixed the axles. total cost was $900. so i have new shocks and brakes which i didnt really need.

It is kinda a rattling noise too. Is the exhaust mount the two hooks that hold up the exhaust? Like do I need to weld them back on the exhaust? Thanks for all the info so far. I hope that it's not something expensive. Man... after hitting 100k miles, things just start happening.

is not a ramp, it like a sidewalk but the other side is for bike or something small to drive over.
