I hacked my roof racks to make them quieter.
Used my power drill to roll kitchen plastic wrap to create a thin strand I could wiggle inside the cross bar and stop air flow through the cross bar as I speed down the road. Inserted the plastic wrap in a zig zag way from end to end
Drove it and I personally like the results. Is not silent but I went from not liking the noise to barely noticing or remembering I installed them.
