Can you show some PICs of what you did?I have noticed that some of the wind noise on mine that i thought was coming from the front is also coming from the rear doors (right by your head). People who sit in the rear really also used to say it was horrible. I was able to do a simple mod that significantly improved the wind noise especially in back. Right in the forward corner of the rear window weatherstripping there is a sizeable gap on a lot of these vehicles (look at top forward corner of rear windows where the window weatherstripping should sit flush against the door frame) its apparent on almost all of these vehicles i see on parking lots and if you look at it you can see how it would catch a lot of air. I got some windshield black caulk and entirely filled both gaps on either side. it doesn't affect the window up,down operation and it really improves the wind noise especially in back-just wait for it to set completely for a day before you openthe rear window or the caulk may crack alittle-but i did this mod a year ago and it still looks great--try it!
yeah there was a pretty big difference in the wind noise for me. especially around freeway speed, like 55-70ish. (anything above 80, you're gonna get wind noise anyway.)after rack removal,,was there a big difference in wind noise,,worth removing roof rack???
