My 06 2wd Pilot has a drone over rumble strips at slower speeds and over “patterned” road cracks up to say 25 mph. I have replaced the rear shocks and the sway bar links.

Any ideas?

Drive faster. ?

In all seriousness perhaps make sure the lugnuts are tightened to the proper torque. Also have the balance on the rear tires checked. But I would think if either of these were out of tolerance that you’d have more issues at higher speeds.

Don’t think it is that although those are fine ideas. It is the same kind of sound my old Dodge diesel truck made at a certain rpm where it would cause a harmonic in the truck bed. Spray undercoating fixed that on the truck.

Tighten your factory jack in its cradle before you do anything else.

Adding to Can’s suggestion also check the storage compartment where you put the rear headrests when they are not in use.

Had this issue with my 05. Changed transmission fluid 3-4x and the noise vanished. This was 3 summers ago. Still no noise.

Just changed my tranny fluid x3 and no change. Going to try sway bar bushings next. Also need to mention that the unit has new urethane LCA’s and sway bar bushings and new links in the front and new links and shocks in the back. It used to have all manner of clunks and rattles before I did that, now just rattles some in the back and that annoying harmonic. I am also thinking perhaps I need rear wheel bearings.
