Need help

2008 sport manual..

When driving home wed, i turned up the hill to my house and it started making a loud odd sound.

It is kind of like the sound you get if you were to be two gears to high.
clutch felt fine give it gas and the sound was still there but it accelerates just fine.

Next day on my way to work nothing it sounds runs great.
on my way home i turn the corner and same sound.

Today i take it for a hour drive, it seems i get the sound when going up hill.
The steeper the hill the louder it is.

Anyone one have any idea?
Ill take it to the dealer ship but i know it wont make it for them.

I'd check lug nuts on the wheels first, i've had wheels loosen up unexpectedly. If they are tight, i'd jack up each corner and check for excessive play in the rotating assembly. Hope you get it figured out, good luck!

I would check the caliper bolts as well if you have had them off recently. I have seen them work loose if not torqued down properly.
