factory cross-bar wind noise
just got some factory cross bars from my 04 wrx wagon. plan on getting some yakima adapters and bike racks and felt the factory flat bars had a cleaner look to them than the yakima low riders.
anyway, installed them as the instructions state - the front bar is 3" from the front seam and the rear on the seam. unfortunately, now i have a terrible, howling wind noise at anything about 40mph.
now these are the factory bars that they sell stock w/the outback, correct? i can't believe they would sell those cars with the bars if there was a noise issue...
anyone else have the same issue? is there an ideal placement of the bars to eliminate the noise??
