Can Body Work Result In More Noise?


Recommended Posts

It's been 3 days since I got my 2006 ES330 back from a body shop (I got rear ended). I don't know if I was imagining it, but when I was driving it today, I thought the noise level was high. The engine was quiet, so it must be some kind of road noise. I was driving on the same route that I had used hundreds times before. The tires are about 1 year old and seem fine.

Can (poor) body work result in more noise?

It's not mechanical or wind noise. It's more like tire/road noise. I don't recall having heard that much noise before. I initially thought that the rear axle or a rear wheel might have been damaged. However, I don't notice vibration. Moreover, When I drove the damaged car for a few days before dropping it at the body shop, I didn't notice anything strange, noise-wise.
