front wheel issues

Asked by Jul 06, 2009 at 05:21 PM about the 1998 GMC Jimmy 4 Dr SLS Sport SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A dry, vibration like hum from front end, seems worse after driving awhile. When I jack up front end and spin wheel (either side) they dont seem to spin as freely as back wheels when rear end jacked up and in neutral. I have a rear wheel drive. almost seems like brakes arent releasing like they should, but plenty of pad left on brakes. No wiggle on wheel when I pulled on wheel to check bearings. any thoughts?
