wheel bearing noise

Asked by Jun 03, 2016 at 03:44 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 z24 cavailer. An I put two new wheel
bearings on both front tires an it still makes the
bad bearing noise. What else could it be? Also
when I go about 60 mph my front end starts to
shake a little.

If you have replaced your bearings it could be that your tires are chopped. I have had this happen where the bearings were changed however still make a bearing noise. Had to change tires as well.

What if I were to rotate them?

You could rotate them towards the back and see if the noise in the front goes away? Small experiment before you have to go any further.

I'll try it out. Thanks for advice
