between 0-25mph it chuggs, between 25-65mph it drives like an old truck, & now a whining sound coming from the passengers side hub, any clues?

berings my first gess the tire might be losse
wonderful, so what's the worse case scenario...the wheel bearings have been done. i do however notice when i stop there is clunk noise that no one seems to know where its coming from would this be it?
whining noise is wheel bearing , they are not that hard to do , the clunking noise could be a number of things , those cars do have a problem with strut tops,the rubber bushing on top of the strut. you need a spring compressor to fix that.
well I was quoted at a transmission house because that was my first thought as my tranny went with about the same noise in my olds 3.1L vs 3.8L which I have currently & that noise was similar then, it was a spring in the tranny, this however is a wheel bearing on the passengers side & the tranny place here in NR 1yr warranty + 3hrs labor part $100, labor unsure. same place in NR quoted me $156 for part with 3yr warranty & still 3hrs to do. guess I'll be going back home to Meno$ to get it done with part & labor for only $180. i can only afford to do this one at a time. until i make more money that's just the way it'll have to be. otherwise i'd be cycling to work vs driving.
