Rubbing noise in front end disappears when turning right.

Asked by May 03, 2017 at 03:30 PM about the 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr WS Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a rubbing noise coming from the front end that at first  sounded like
normal rubber on road but has progressively gotten worse. It disappears when
turning right, like in an S curve on the highway. Any suggestions? How worried
should I be?

CHECK THE WHEEL BEARINGS AND THE DISC PADS..

I thought about the brake pads but thought that would be more of a grind. Makes sense, I've been seeing some grooves on the disc. I'll check bearings too. Would it be the left that's bad if the sound goes away when steering right?

Either way always change disc and bearings out in pairs, Both sides.

Brake pads/shoes changed in pairs, may also check if there is something stuck under there like a stick, rocks, pets ect.

Thanks, will do. Wouldn't have known to change brake pads and disk at the same time.
