Check the passenger side bearings. Sometimes noise will travel and can fool you.

I would check the CV joints. Make sure the boots are intact. Do you have any transmission oil leakage?

No oil leakage. How do I tell if the bearings are bad on the passenger side? Someone told me they thought it might be the driver side front axle. I can feel the vibration through the floor. Don't want to have to replace everything. Any thoughts?


Does the vibration or noise change when you turn?


Jack the right side up and see if there is any play in the wheel up/down. You can look at the axles at the same time. See if any of the boots are ripped slinging grease out.

Thanks people. It does not get noisier when I turn because I slow down to turn so the noise slows down. Obviously related to how fast the wheels are turning. Will jack the car up this weekend and check the wheels, boots and axles. Will check for grease also.

It WAS the other wheel bearing - right front. Thanks guys. Runs like a charm now!!
