Default Wind noise?

Has anyone identified common sources of wind noise and found ways to fix it? I've noticed that my car has WAY more wind noise than my wife'* new GA.

our doors can be bent by a toddler..

if you front window frames have ever been bent cuz you locked your keys in, you will forever have wind noise there...

i do :(

i can lightly push out on the window frame while driving to make it even worse...

opening the door, pushing the frame in slightly, and then testing causines it to go away..for a while...

Your door seals may have shrunk, leaving a gap in them. Might be in a windy area thus letting noise in. The 92-99 will always have some noise though..

MOS95 took some weather stripping and put it under the OEM stuff, to push it up and fill the gaps where the wind noise was......I think that'* how he did it, may have to have him come in and grace us with his presence.

Yep, I did.

There'* kinda like a flap on the OEM stuff. I used some 1/2 or 3/4 inch self adheasive foam insulation under this flap to fix 3 out or 4 doors on my car by hiding it under this "flap".

The 4th door is still causing me problems, but I am stubborn and will win eventually...

Yup, my LSS has about as much wind noise as my dad'* goo cart 93'. I think some good weather stripping will do the trick. I have the original windsheild too.

The most I hear is seems like it'* in front and above me, like top of A piller. There is general noise from the rear that I haven't pinpointed yet.

Wind noise can be very hard to diagnose. the best way is to have a passenger try and pinpoint it for you.

From experience, tho, don't ask you 18 year old son (with included attitude) or 5'2" wife do this. The results are pretty much useless....
